We were able to accomplish almost everything we had planned yesterday.
We dismantled and disconnected the three generations of network technology that were stacked on top of each other.
We managed to clean the room to some extent with a broom we found. Once we speak to the janitor, we will find a place for all the electronic waste (see picture).
One of the switches currently in use didn’t look promising during the removal, so we will replace it this Tuesday evening (starting from 6 PM, depending on traffic).
This means that we will need to unplug the cables of the residents of Egilolfstraße 51 to 59 again, and they won’t have internet during this time. Some rooms will be offline for about an hour, while others will experience shorter outages.
Afterward, the room should be prepared for the installation of the main network connection for the entire Hohenheim area.
The relocation and upgrade of this connection still depend on the IT department of the student services.
We hope that with this cleanup operation, we have eliminated any obstacles that could potentially further delay the final resolution of the network issues in Hohenheim.
