Is your network team ready for OESS and the Internet2 Cloud Connect Portal to migrate to Virtual Networks – the newest feature in Internet2 Insight Console?

The weekend of Oct. 28-29, Internet2 will migrate all currently active connections created using the OESS user interface (UI) and application programming interface (API) to Virtual Networks. Starting one week prior, there will be a freeze on all changes within OESS.  

During the migration, no physical connections will be moved, and no outages are planned or expected – only the user interface will change. After the migration, the Virtual Networks feature within Insight Console will serve as the user interface going forward for building new connections and modifying existing connections.

Read the September blog, OESS and Internet2 Cloud Connect Portal Migrate to Virtual Networks in Late October, for more information about how to prepare for the migration and to watch a video about the new user experience in Virtual Networks.
