    • Our Data Network… A challenge and an opportunity for improvement!
    • Background Information • Growth, growth and more growth! – Steady increase in student population – More schools, more staff and more technology • The focus on 21st Century learning has created a demand for ever increasing bandwidth for multimedia resources. • The district’s current network design is based on Cable modems – “Shares” bandwidth with other companies or residents in the local geographic area • We’ve outgrown our network!
    • What’s the Problem? • Slow downs, time outs & network issues • Email, web pages, food services data, student information system, finance and payroll, and others are barely working. • Outside users (parents, community, etc.) are frustrated with the time it takes to access District resources. • District served by Comcast and Mediacom • Powerschool is struggling to function
    • Show Me Some Data! Thursday May 6th Wednesday May 5th End of the Start of the school day school day End of the school day Start of the school day
    • Finding Solutions • Multiple solutions were researched : – Build a fiber network to all schools – Upgrade existing cable modem network – Purchase circuits such as T1 lines – Point to point wireless • Selection criteria included: – Cost of implementation/installation – Monthly/recurring costs – Timeliness of implementation – Scalability – Meet needs now and in the future
    • Recommended Solutions • 1.) Upgrade the main internet connection for all outgoing and incoming network traffic. – Current: 2 Megabit up and 20 Megabit down on a cable modem connection – Proposed: 50 Megabit up and 50 Megabit down on a fiber network connection (Mediacom) • 2.) Upgrade the connections between each site to handle network traffic. – Current: 2 Megabit up and 20 Megabit down on a cable modem connection – Proposed: 125-300 Megabit up and 125-300 Megabit down on point to point wireless system
    • • DMS to serve as the “hub” for point to point wireless connections • 50-100 foot tower placed on the roof of DMS • Connection speeds of 125-300 mbs • Currently, we have 2mbs between schools
    • Fiber Connections
