Fiber-Optic Network Maintenance and Cleaning this week

A reminder that the Information Technology department is performing maintenance and cleaning of the fiber-optic network on the DeLand campus this week through Friday, Jan. 11, during the hours of 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., in an effort to continue improving network reliability and performance.

Fiber-optic connections degrade over time because of dirt and dust, and connections can become loose. There will be about five minutes of downtime per building as these connections are cleaned. To minimize the impact of this downtime, the maintenance at the CUB, Edmunds Center, DeLand Hall, duPont-Ball Library, Sage, Sampson, Elizabeth, Presser, Flagler, ATC, LBC, Welcome Center and Davis will be performed at either 6-8 a.m. or 4:30-6 p.m. We will provide notification of downtime in the remaining buildings as the maintenance is performed.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact I.T. at or 386-822-7217.
