Did you know?
service at the Main campus and Liberty West have been significantly
increased! The Liberty West site was
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
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.
