Scheduled Maintenance: UCSF VA-1700 Owens (CAAN #3558) Deactivation of Wireless Controller

Status Type

Scheduled Maintenance

Date and Time

Tuesday, December 17, 2013 - 06:00 to 07:00


On Tuesday 12/17/2013 at 6:00am ITS will be decommissioning the current wireless controller and migrating the Wireless Access Points (WAPs) to a new, more robust wireless controller on the Mission Bay Campus. This is one piece to a re-architecting initiative in the wireless environment to reduce costs to UCSF, provide Enterprise solution with redundancy, and improve service to our end users.


Each WAP at UCSF 1700 Owens, floors 3 & 4 will be migrated to another controller. The individual WAP will be down approx. 2-3 minutes. The total time to do this migration of all the WAPs will be approximately 1 hour. Impact as an end user connected to the wireless network, UCSFwpa or UCSFguest, during the migration of the AP you are connected to you may experience a degradation of service or loss of connectivity for the 2-3 minutes migration. No impact to the VA wired network.

If you have any questions or need clarification, please contact Sue Asay, Sr Project Manager at 476-1980 or email [email protected]
