Upgrades to Jensen and CFA Networks

Taking advantage of the network downtime that was already planned during today's power outage, we've upgraded the building router of the CFA. Jensen's building router was upgraded earlier this spring. With today's upgrade the connection from Jensen to CFA has increased in speed from 2Gig to 20Gig and the connection from CFA to our network core router has increased from 1Gig to 20Gig. Koren and Campus House are also served by the CFA building router and will also benefit from the increased speed.
