Smooth virtual commencement, with UW-IT support for 2021 ceremony

The 2021 UW commencement took place virtually again — and went super smoothly — thanks to the many staff who supported the University’s critical technology for the event, including a dedicated wired network.

“Thank you all for once again supporting another successful commencement!” said UW Video Director Rob Rosamond in regard to UW-IT’s support. “The network was always stable and provided exactly what was needed by UW Video, Office of Ceremonies and our production vendor partners.”

UW-IT designed, installed and connected a network tailored to meet the specific requirements of this event, including uniquely configured physical switches and a firewall. UW-IT also provided on-site and remote support.
