The Campus Network Infrastructure Project, or CNIP, has the goal of upgrading our UW Colleges campus networks and wireless networks. In the effort to improve the campus network, the CNIP project team here at Central IT has been connecting with campuses about their needs and wants. We have a plan to upgrade all 13 UWC Campuses by July of 2016. Four campuses have been nearly completed, and there are four more in the very beginning stages.
The CNIP team is ensuring that our campus partners are kept up-to-date on the goings on of this project, and we are also making sure that the campuses being work on are in constant communication with us. We are really excited for this project to be completed in full next year, and there's already been great results from the four campuses that are nearly complete. We've been learning a lot of important lessons from this project so far, and the knowledge from these experiences will help make the next campus transitions even smoother. So far, feedback has been positive, with only a few glitches and bumps along the way. Also available for campuses is a FAQ about the what will happen during the transition time. You can find this document here (note- you will need to sign in to view this document).
We are very optimistic about this project, and we believe that it will truly be a positive influence on our campus staff, students, and faculty. The Central IT CNIP project team is very excited to see the final results of this project!
