Required by the State Legislature to Cut Its Ties with WiscNet, UW System to Develop Its Own Network

UW System announces its own network will replace WiscNet. (Wisconsin State Journal, 10/1/2013)

UW is setting up its own network, to be designed, operated, and managed by UW-Madison's Division of Information Technology.   The transition is expected to take 14-18 months at a cost $33,000,000, which is $13,000,000 more than if it had been allowed to remain a member of WiscNet.

Possible sticking point.  The System plans to ask legislators for an extension from its deadline to end their relationship with WiscNet to ensure an easy transition from one network to another.
