[Completed] ResNet Bandwidth Upgrade 3/24/09

[Update 3/24/09 6:00 AM] The bandwidth upgrade on the ResNet Internet connection is complete. ResNet now has a 100 Mbps connection to the Internet. Enjoy!

On Tuesday morning, 3/24/09, from 5:30 AM to 6:00 AM the Internet connection for the college’s residential network will be upgraded from 45 Mbps to 100 Mbps (a two-fold increase). The Resnet Internet connection will be unavailable during this time.

The upgraded connection will feature not only a 100 Mbps bandwidth, but also a new traffic shaping model, based on bandwidth, rather than type of traffic. This should reduce many of the application problems we have seen over the past few years.
