Upgrade of HARNET-Internet Bandwidth in September 2015

The University's primary Internet connectivity is supported via the Hong Kong Academic and Research Network (HARNET).  To cope with the increasing demand for Internet bandwidth to facilitate the University's research and academic activities, the HARNET-Internet bandwidth has been upgraded from 4.3Gbps to 4.9Gbps on 1 September 2015.

In addition, the resilient pair of gateway routers connecting the campus network and HARNET has been upgraded and replaced by another pair of high performance Cisco routers in August 2015 for performance improvement.
