Did you know…
Internet service at the Main campus and Liberty West have been
significantly increased? The Liberty West site was hooked up to
networkMarylandTM last October, eliminating the need to share
the Main campus’s Internet service (still there as a backup). The Main
campus in the last couple of weeks has doubled its 90MB (vendor-provided)
capacity through the addition of a 100MB circuit, again from networkMarylandTM.
is this important?
Our focus is always on students and now that we have the additional
capacity, students and supporting staff have more bandwidth and quicker
response for their use.
Many if not most programs used by the Testing Department, Financial Aid
and Tutoring are now web-based.
As preparatory work for the ERP project, the infrastructure will continue
to be improved. The new ERP system will have the resources needed PRIOR to
or at implementation.
We are working with the State to add a circuit for BCED’s RPC site so
they can enjoy the same lightning speed and throughput to serve
their staff and future training contracts.
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
new telephone system was successfully deployed June 4 at Liberty West.
The same system will be coming to the Main campus over the next few
months (except August – when there will be a freeze on telephone moves).
This should be completed by the end of the year if not sooner.
questions regarding these projects or other telecom issues can be routed
to Harold King, BCCC Telecom Coordinator, at email@example.com.
