The Common Network Initiative (CNI) is an ongoing effort to maintain campus baseline network infrastructure as technology advances and user needs evolve. The program is funded by the Chancellor’s Office. It provides for the refresh of each campus network infrastructure on a cyclical basis to ensure that the network infrastructure continues to keep pace with technology and to meet the changing needs of CSU students, faculty, and staff.
As part of the Common Network Initiative (CNI) program of the CSU Office of the Chancellor, Infrastructure Services will be performing major campus network infrastructure upgrades. This work is expected to last through Summer 2016.
