When the pilot test is complete in September, more information will be communicated about the service, support, and training options available to campus departments. Once a signed contract is in place, campus departments can elect to deploy BDF and IDF firewall solutions from the campus agreement. More information about IET managed services for IDF firewalls will be available in September.
The campus firewall committee reviewed the pilot test plan and has requested modifications from the chosen firewall vendor, Corsa Network Technologies. The firewall pilot test, to be held at the vendor site, is expected to begin the week of August 23, 2004. The pilot test is scheduled to run for three weeks.
