Telephone service into and out of MISD was disabled at approximately 9:30 last night due to weather related power outages. Other systems such as GroupWise web mail were also impacted by the outage.
Once power was restored earlier today to the location where key backup components of the telephone system are housed, Technology Development network technicians were able to reactivate that system. Restoring GroupWise WebMail involved rerouting network traffic around equipment still disabled by the loss of power.
The Police and Technology Building ran briefly on generator power during intermittent outages at that building. Installation of an upgraded transfer switch needed for this function was completed on Monday.
Technology upgrades currently underway throughout the district will reduce its exposure to this type of service interruption in the future.
