District completes back-end upgrades to wireless infrastructure

This summer, the district has completed the back-end upgrades to our wired and wireless infrastructure. This included replacing each switch, running new fiber for faster connections to each network closet, and a near three-fold expansion of our wireless access points. Wireless Internet access points were increased from 112 to 370. Staff and students will notice a far faster wired and wireless experience throughout the district.

Along with the performance improvements, system-wide management becomes far easier. Each network connection is now labeled and marked. Automated reports of potential service issues are sent to district IT staff in near real time.
