IT Services will be retiring the dial-up modem pool on Thursday, September 17, 2020.
As of Thursday, September 17, 2020, the IT Services modem pool will be retired. Launched in 1990, the modem pool provided dial-up capability to access UCLA resources. As the world and technology changed, ITS saw rapidly decreasing usage over the last few years. Finally, the Network Services team reported no use of the modem pool in the last 90 days. In the coming weeks, we’ll be updating KB articles to reflect that the modem pool will no longer be available as a connection option. We ask that you review and update any information you have as well. So join us in bidding farewell to the trusty old modem pool. You served us well!
