Powering off core network equipment over the Summer holiday period

Posted on 04/07/2024 07:17:35

We would like to ask schools to refrain from turning off the power to the core networking equipment over the forthcoming Summer holiday period. Core networking equipment includes routers, switches and servers, often in a wall or floor cabinet. These devices are monitored by ourselves and Rydal/Schools Broadband and turning off the power results in false alarms. This could potentially result in your school incurring a charge for an engineer visit.


If there is no alternative to powering off the communications cabinet and core equipment, because of planned work, for example, please advise us in advance.
