Between 21:30 and 22:00 this evening, most people in the main campus sector (the area bounded by Prince Alfred Street, Somerset Street, Lucas Avenue, and a straight line drawn between Psychology & Beit, the Library & John Kotze and Biological Sciences & Botha) will have been without network access.

This outage was caused by an intermittent fault on the fibre optic pair connecting the distribution switches in Struben and the Library. (The distribution switch in the Library was installed this morning.) It was resolved by changing to an alternate pair.
