KU still tallying total cost of massive internet fiber cut, weighing options for preventing a repeat outage - Sara Shepherd, LJ World

Kansas University has yet to tally the total cost of an internet fiber cable cut that crippled campus earlier this spring, but some sources indicate it may be in the millions of dollars. Meanwhile KU Information Technology is looking at how to prevent such an outage from occurring in the future, and University Senate representatives say funds must be secured to build a backup system. “This simply cannot happen again,” the University Senate’s Academic Computing and Electronic Communications Committee wrote in its end-of-the-year report. “Specifically, a single communications cut cannot bring down the entire Lawrence campus and parts of Edwards campus.” http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2016/jun/05/ku-still-tallying-total-cost-massive-internet-fibe/
