1. State of Wired Network
  • IPv6
    • still waiting for allocations from OIT (it's been 2 years)
    • possibly this summer
    • will need some new equipment
    • NATing goes away, have flatter space like Dan Olsen wants (e.g. printer broadcasting and config)
  • upgrading core
    • leaf and spine topology 1U instead of chassis switch
    • 48 ports at 10 Gbps, 4 ports of 40 Gbps
    • we are currently oversubscribed in the core (48/1) and want (4/1)
  • labs
    • need to survey classes and see what our students and labs need
    • move to laptop or collaborative spaces
    • need to worry about software that is proprietary and can't go on a student machine
  • DHCP
    • need to consolidate to a single DHCP server
  1. State of the Wireless Network
  • putting in new wireless equipment from Xirrus
    • Xirrus did a coverage survey
    • authentication on the array
    • BYU legal says it is against BYU policy to have unauthenticated access
    • OIT: all users must have unique id, passwords must be used
    • don't want the legal liability for a stranger to walk in and access our network
    • BYU Guest - throttled, no mail to port 22, no files larger than 3 MB in size, heavy monitor
    • working on getting some issues fixed, once we have a configuration, then it will be easy to get all the rest up
  1. Help System
  • Ticket System
    • New system isn't working well for administration, too complex
    • Working on evaluating new systems
  1. Security
  • Report from Kent's students
    • Lots of old software
    • CSRs starting to look at the problems
    • Need to target those servers not getting fixed
  1. State of Equipment
  • Firewall
    • Got a new server for the firewall
  • Supercomputing
    • Quinn making a new purchase
  • NFS
    • examining NFS issues
