Do you have a timeline/schedule planned for the full migration?

The final cutover will be 9/28/2019. The cutover will happen all at once, not in stages. External testing will be allowed the two maintenance weekends prior to the cutover, 8/31 and 9/14.

Who are you contacting in each Agency?

We will be asking for a Point of Contact from each Agency with the next customer notification.

Will there be an impact to RUMBA?

RUMBA will function as long as the communication paths have been established and tested.

What is the impact of this in general?

Anything that uses an IP address instead of a name will have to be changed.

What is the new Juniper connection product that will be implemented?

SecureRemote users will utilize a new FortiClient software to connect to the new firewalls.

What action do customers need to take now?

A second notice will be sent out with additional information regarding the impact to customers and requesting a point of contact to coordinate the customer’s efforts.  The notice will specify how to provide that information. Customers should be identifying someone to act as their liaison and identifying their network support staff.

When do we start testing?

Testing will be coordinated with the customer points of contact when NFC is ready to begin testing. That will not be until after May 15th. Each customer will be provided a test window and information on how to test their connectivity.
