Common Network Initiative (CNI)

What is CNI?

The CSU is dedicated to keeping the network infrastructure of each campus current. Over the summer and fall CSUSM will work with AT&T and the Chancellor’s Office to replace obsolete network equipment. This will increase our campus network bandwidth and capacity, and make our network infrastructure more reliable. You can read more about the CNI project at http://its.calstate.edu/cni/

Campus-Wide Network Upgrades Starting June 2014

Many of the precise schedule details are not yet finalized.  The schedule below represents expected “cutover” dates.  We do not expect these cutovers to have a significant impact on the campus.  Some desktops may need to be rebooted after the cutover, others will not be affected.  During the week prior to cutover, a notice identifying physical locations and cutover dates will be distributed in the weekly campus-wide announcements from the Office of Communications to help remind people.
