New Project Focuses on Replacing Aging Network Equipment

The Network 21 Replacement Project, initiated in August 2002 and expected to reach completion next May, is working on network design and cutover sequencing. This project will replace the existing 3Com ATM network equipment (which has reached the end of its life cycle) with the UCDNet2 Foundry Gigabit Ethernet equipment. This project affects the Area Distribution Facilities (ADFs), Building Distribution Facilities (BDFs) and Intermediate Distribution Facilities (IDFs).
