UTS Strategic Plan (number,letter)
|Status Updates||Project Status|
|High Performance Network: The campus network will provide robust and secure, wired and wireless, connectivity for education, research, and administrative activities.||Institutional Priority 1: Create Productive Student and Faculty Experiences|
|Complete campus cyclical network electronics refresh: Shotwell Pavillion, O’Dowd Hall, Varner Hall, Hannah Hall, Pawley Hall, South Foundation Hall, and Elliott Hall.||1a||New switches were successfully installed in Shotwell Pavillion, O’Dowd Hall, Varner Hall, Hannah Hall, Pawley Hall, and South Foundation Hall. Elliot Hall is scheduled for upgrade in the summer of 2014. The new switch platforms offer a ten-fold increase in performance with several new features specifically designed to increase reliability and uptime. These new switches also enable our new 802.11ac wireless access points to operate at full capacity. These new switches also include a free enhanced lifetime warranty which decreases support costs required for these network components, previously a $30k/year cost campus-wide. Additionally, in O'Dowd and Hannah (and, consequently, PSS), OU's current standard for building router diversity was successfully implemented to add redundancy and better avoid unplanned outages.||Complete, with Elliott Hall completed June 25, 2014.|
|Complete cyclical refresh of Virtual Private Network (VPN).||1a||The new VPN environment was selected, purchased, tested, and installed in April 2014. The old VPN platform was designated End-of-Life by its vendor, resulting in ongoing operating system compatibility issues. The new platform's support lifecycle will ensure that we can implement ongoing updates to address client compatibility issues. In addition, as part of this implementation, two-factor authentication was enabled for certain users, providing another level of data security for critical applications.||Complete|
|Provide network consultation and support for Hannah Hall renovation.||1c||Hannah Hall renovation work related to networks was completed in fall 2013. Work included new switch install and network design for the School of Medicine Gross Anatomy Lab.||Complete|
|Provide network consultation and support for O'Dowd renovation and rewiring project.||1c||Support for O'Dowd renovation and rewiring continued on schedule for fall 2013. New switches and wiring were installed.||Complete|
|Complete border router replacement and upgrades.||1a||Primary router installed previous year; old primary router upgraded and installed during July 2013. The secondary border router was upgraded to allow higher capacity connections to the Merit backbone and commodity Internet. Both border routers are now on modern platforms that will allow for future growth and upgrades. The new primary border is currently 10G-ready, and the new seconardy border router is 10G-capable with the implementation of an additional module.||Complete|
|Devise and implement updated architecture for redundant border connectivity.||1b||The primary border router's connection to Merit will be upgraded to 10G, providing a tenfold increase in bandwidth capacity. This is OU's primary connection to the Internet, Internet2 and the in-state Merit backbone, directly connecting all of Michigan's major institutes of higher education. In addition, the remaining single-homed device at the network border will be migrated, so that the network border will be fully redundant in all regards. This connection is a critical component of OU's network infrastructure, and these changes will increase the performance and availability of 1) all OU-hosted services accessed by the Internet at large and 2) all Internet/cloud-hosted services accessed while on-campus.||In progress, planned for June/July 2014|
|Complete wireless AP density analysis.||1g, 1h||Moved goal.||Planning for 2014-2015.|
|Identify and mitigate wireless interference.||1g||Project to migrate to the Aruba wireless platform included tools available to detect WiFi and non-Wifi wireless interference. The access points constantly scan the channels they are on and report interference to the controller. The controller then will attempt to change channels on the effected radios if the interference is high. For interference caused by other WiFi devices, we use the access points themselves and dedicated air monitors to locate and contain the source of interference. The management platform also allows us to see these devices on a map for easier locating. Other improvements for non-WiFi devices are in place.||Complete|
|Begin wireless transition to new technical platform.||1g, 1h||Completed project to move wireless access points to an updated controllers, improving capacity and system stability. New technical platform has been selected. Reviewed and developed budget for initial planned order. Initial order processed and received fall 2013. Migration to new wireless platform initiated in December 2013. Oakland Center completed December 2013. Dodge Hall, Science and Engineering Building and Hannah Hall completed Spring 2014. South Foundation Hall upgraded in April 2014.||Project work scheduled for this year is complete. Additional buildings will be migrated next year.|
|Execute upgrades and replacements for DNS services.||1a||Implemented redundant DNS services in Macomb. Implemented redundant DNS resolvers behind the F5 load balancers. Previously a single-point of failure, the newly-redundant resolvers -- used by all on-campus network users -- are critical in accessing off-campus/Internet-hosted resources. The new high availability design also allows for easier maintenance and upgrades to be performed with no impact to the end-user.||Complete|
|Execute upgrades and rearchitecture for IPv6.||1a||Distributed high-level analysis report from Educause for strategic reivew. All campus and datacenter cores are now IPv6-enabled with fully-meshed paths between. Existing IPv6 border firewall (Cisco ASA) upgraded with additional memory and the latest software revision, enabling additional IPv6 security mechanisms / application inspection. Research performed for additional IPv6-based security mechanisms, so that when client-facing IPv6 is implemented, it can be done so in a secure manner.||Complete|

|Support advising services.||2l||Advising implementation projects include: |
I. Implementation of Banner Student Retention Performance, with student analytics, integration with Banner Communications Management, and real-time Banner data. This is in the installation and test implementation phase. Initial roll-out is in Enrollment Management and First Year Advising, but is also involving professional advisers. Roll-out has proceeded successfully.
II. Develop data file and login identity integration supporting the implementation of the Education Advisory Board – Student Success Collaborative. Completed data extraction and secure transmission processes. Prototype verfication is underway.
III. Finalize implementation of AdviserTrac. Originally purchased as a replacement system for a homegrown SBA advising appointment system, a campus-wide solution was purchased with SBA as the original departmental user. This is an advising center management system that allows for appointment scheduling with session records, notes, and progress. Very quickly all advising areas became interested. We are in the final stages to launch for SBA. Other advising areas are interested in using the product, starting with the College of Arts and Sciences. Each area will require a set-up. We have no staff available to work on this, and outsourcing will be required for set-up in each area, funded by each using department.
IV. Supported Registrar and Athletics in designing an athletics advising and academic progress solution using the Curriculum, Advising, and Program Planning (CAPP) module in Banner.
V. Banner Document Management: Advisers use many documents to support advising. Part of the project to implement Banner Document Management will be to create an online student file. This project starts in January 2014 and is covered by a central university project budget. Advising will train with the Office of the Registrar in September.
VI. UTS is building a MySAIL portal for advisers. We tracked over 80 systems and web sites in use by advisers; something around a dozen require a login. We need to pull this together into a comprehensive view where advisors go to one URL and login once to get the information they need. In particular, a driving enhancement will be to give advisers access to see a student-friendly view of progress to degree, so they can see what the student sees. Version 1 is scheduled for June launch.
VII. Providing advice to a Registrar / Student Team Kaizen Lean process that links current records advising to graduation application and graduation audit processes. This will likely result in a supportive development process that will improve the graduation audit process. The graduation application has been implemented in Banner Self-Service (SAIL).
