On Friday, August 27, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM, we will upgrade the campus telephone system to provide more robust, redundant service. During this time, calls into or out of campus have a small possibility of being dropped. If this occurs, please re-dial your call. On-campus calls should not experience any problems. For questions or concerns, please contact Telephone Services at email@example.com.

Integra Internet Outage
We experienced an intermittent service interuption with our Integra Telecomm circuit this morning starting at 8:50am until approximately 8:45am. The cause was an aggrigation router in Renton. We observed random ping times and drops until the repair was made. I believe traffic was passing but slow and unreliably. The repair is complete and everything is back in service.

[Update 9:10 AM] Service has been restored. Please notify the Service Desk at 253.879.8585 or firstname.lastname@example.org if any further issues arise.
We are working with Integra, our Internet service provider for the residential network on campus, to resolve some intermittent service disruptions experienced this morning. We will provide an update when this issue is resolved. Thank you for your patience.
