These are our current needs that we will be seeking to fill using the Erate program.  (2015-2016)


Phones:

We are looking into changing our telephone system because it is outdated. We do not need VOIP.
We have about five lines and service 30 phones with local, LD, and voice mail currently. Interested in same type of service, but upadting of equipment is necessary due to failures in service. Looking for dependability.


Internet:

Internet service currently through Charter. Will need to review and recontract, or change provider. Although service has not been stellar, the price point for 100x10 is solid. Would think about a change rather than renewal.

Networking:

This is our big project. We need to have:

1. Our network evaluated for reliability. Cisco Switches are 10-12 years old.
2. Current wireless has some problems on occassion with reliable connectivity in the classrooms where one to one is being done..
3. Replacement of current access points with new equipment is our goal - but want to make sure there are not other issues with the network that may also be contributing to the connectivity issue. (Internal Connections and Managed Internal Broadband Services)
