[We are mainly sending out this notification as a precaution. If everything goes as planned, there should be no outages.]
Starting at 9:30 pm on Thursday, February 21st and extending for a few hours, there will be a fire system test being performed on UPS-backed circuits in FAB/EB. (UPS circuits have battery backed up power to ensure they stay up despite a power failure.) The circuits in question cover:
FAB suites 55 and 60
EB networking (the closets where the network gear lives)
The work is supposed to happen without affecting the circuits but this will be the first time they are using a newly installed bypass switch. If they run into a problem with this switch, equipment in these spaces could lose power. If you have concerns about your equipment losing power, you may want to shut them down for the duration of the work.
