Brief Network Disruption

Resolved Alert:

At approximately 1:20PM, George Mason University experienced a brief network disruption caused by a bounce fiber link from our ISP. The network disruption led to individuals on the VPN being disconnected and quickly reconnected.

We are working with our ISP to rectify the problem and implement measures to prevent its recurrence.


Initial Alert:
