This evening at 9pm, we will begin performing an upgrade on our Cisco Expressway servers to mitigate a vulnerability. The maintenance should last approximately 30 minutes. During the maintenance window, A/V video conferences will be down and Cisco Jabber clients attempting to connect externally will fail.
