Re-engineering for a Sustainable Future

Internet & WiFi Network Upgrade

Juniper Networks will run all campus wired and wireless networks by August 2023.

What is it?

The wired and wireless networks that provide internet access to the campus will be consolidated onto Juniper Networks.

Why are we doing it?

The majority of the hardware that provides wired and wireless network service was end-of-life and unable to support current network standards such as WiFi 6. By upgrading this service, UNCG will enjoy improved wireless connectivity, enhanced network capabilities, a better mobile user experience, WiFi 6 support, and support for home devices in student housing.

How will I be impacted?

The upgrades will occur at night and on weekends. Subscribe to ITS News for updates and announcements on when downtimes will occur. 

When will this be implemented?

Between January and August 2023, wired and wireless services will be upgraded. Check your building’s status below:
