High School Wireless Approved

Over the next few months we will be putting in place the infrastructure for a full coverage wireless Internet, N capabilities in a seamless manner, system across the High School and partial coverage in Bluff View and B.A. Kennedy. This project will include a Meru wireless system backbone, and a network infrastructure refresh, to give us gigabit connections to the wireless devices, our servers, and high use computers.

This upgrade allows for future growth potential such as higher connectivity speeds between our schools when that is needed. We are topping out our current 36 Mbps pipeline due to increased use of Internet resources for educational programming. This is a good problem to have as it is being used; but it is causing occasional network slowdowns. These changes will totally correct this bottleneck problem by next fall, as it will allow us to fully utilize a 96 Mbps pipeline increase that has been approved.
