A major fiber optic cable connecting the Floyd Campus to Peachnet (and in turn to the Internet) was damaged. An emergency maintenance window has been tentatively scheduled to repair this fiber optic cable this Friday starting at midnight and running through 8:00AM Saturday morning. During this time, ALL services will be unavailable internally and externally (GHC website, Banner, VPN, faculty/staff and student email – everything.)
If we continue to experience connectivity issues, there is a chance the maintenance window will need to be moved to an earlier time. We hope to avoid this, as we do not want to affect connectivity during business hours. However, due to the severity of the situation, this may become necessary.
We will keep everyone posted as we have additional updates.
