UMTech Solutions Network Upgrade

5-9-2018 @ 10:40am, Update 5-15-2018,

EA, ES and ET are scheduled for upgrade June 18,2018 and will start around 11:00PM and finish on June 19 around 5:00AM.

The network upgrade project is underway and involves three major network components: wired network, wireless network and network access control system. This network upgrade will provide significant enhancements to our bandwidth, wireless coverage, and security. It will also build capacity for supporting future growth of academic and research initiatives.

The upgrade began in main campus residence halls and will progress to other buildings followed by our campuses at Millington, Collierville, the Law School, Lambuth and Park Avenue Campus. This network upgrade will impact every building at every location, and network outages will occur while equipment is being replaced. Most network outages will occur overnight between the hours of 11PM and 5AM while the wired network is being upgraded. Smaller, localized disruptions in wireless services may be experienced as the wireless network equipment is replaced. Signage will be posted in buildings alerting occupants of potential network disruptions.

As we progress through the network upgrade, additional information and status updates will be shared. The latest information and scheduling related to the project may be found HERE. For questions or assistance after a building has been upgraded, please contact the ITS Service Desk by calling 901.678.8888, emailing or visiting HERE.

[as the time of this post, EA (and probably all of Herff College) are scheduled for the upgrade on 6/18/18 from 11pm to 5pm]

UofM First in Higher Education to Partner with Folds of Honor

6-4-2018 @ 10:30am,

The University of Memphis is the first institution of higher learning to nationally partner with Folds of Honor to support higher education for spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members, President M. David Rudd has announced.

The UofM is accepting the Folds of Honor scholarship ($5,000 annually with the addition of private donations and other support funds to cover the financial gap) as payment in full for tuition for all Tennessee residents and others around the country in accordance with capacity.

“We would not exist as a country without the service and sacrifice of so many who defend our freedom,” said Rudd, who is also a veteran. “The families are serving as well, and the loss of a parent or spouse presents a huge hardship, both emotionally and financially. The University of Memphis is committed to cover any gap that exists and to relieve these families of that burden.

“The hope is that other universities will follow, helping the University of Memphis establish a national consortium committed to recognizing the remarkable contributions and sacrifices of our men and women in uniform.”

Senior Project Equipment

09-10-2008 @ 5:15pm,

Do you know what you want to do for senior projects but don't have the equipment or money to buy it? I have acquired many items over the years that can be used for EETH and CETH senior projects (see link below).

I also have a number of computers that can be used by students for senior projects in ET227a for your use in case you need software not installed on the image in the computer labs, or you need Linux or another OS.
