Reason:    UBC IT is performing a capacity upgrade on the ‘ubc’

           this maintenance window to reposition the wireless
           controllers and complete firmware upgrades. Testing and
           verification of the new architecture will be conducted
           during July with the target to complete the upgrade
           project by mid-August.  There will be another
           announcement at the beginning of August for the service
           cutovers.

Effects:   During this maintenance window, there will be rolling
           interruptions to the wireless ‘ubc’ ssid at UBCV as
           hardware and firmware upgrades are completed.  The
           outage time in any one area or building may be up to
           one hour.
