UCAR's Level 3 Dial-up Remote Access Service to be Decommissioned

A declining user base, excessive cost per user, and budget limitations have led to the decision to decommission UCAR's Level 3 Dial-up Remote Access service (http://www.cisl.ucar.edu/cpg/ras/) on May 1st, 2011.  Employees should work with their system administrator to find alternative means of connecting to the network remotely and with their supervisor to determine reimbursement options.  Alternative connections to the network could be: tethering to a smart phone, WiFi, or if dial-up is the only option, obtaining an individual dial-up account from an ISP.  This decision was discussed and approved by the Network Coordination and Advisory Board (http://www.ucar.edu/ncab/) on January 19th, 2011.  If you have any questions, please contact Paul Dial (dialp@ucar.edu).
Will this event be webcast to the public by NCAR|UCAR?:
