Meeting Reminders:

The next Technology Advisory Committee Meeting is Thursday December 1st, 2016 at 9:00am.

 

Network Infrastructure Design

As the purchasing season approaches, NEOnet wants to remind all our customers that we are more than willing to come out put switch and wireless infrastructure designs together.  After we visit each technology closet, we will discuss your district initiatives and put together a comprehensive proposal that will meet your needs and future proof your investment.  We have a proven design developed around high performance technologies that is already in place and working at many schools.  Let us help you put together a proposal that your district can build off as a solid foundation to all your technology needs.

 

Disaster Recovery Site Renovations

In order to improve our level of service and increase reliability, NEOnet will begin renovations of the disaster recover site in a few weeks.  Part of the expansion includes adding an additional 60% of rack space, increasing the redundancy and cooling capability and adding access control capabilities to the equipment racks.  These enhancements resolve some physical security and temperature control issues that would become issues as we increase the equipment present at the DR site.  A more robust generator maintenance and monitoring program will also be implemented to ensure uninterrupted power capabilities to the equipment.  As we increase our service offering and our redundancy, the reliance on the DR site also increases.  These improvements will put us in a position to increase our capabilities and provide the level of service our customers have come to rely on.

 

AD Self Service Password Reset and User Update

In a couple short weeks, NEOnet will begin sending out communications to our customers to deploy some user tools that will help provide updated contact information and increased user elf service capabilities.  The AD self-service password reset tool will allow users to answer a few security questions and reset their own password in the event they forget their credentials.  The user update utility will allow users to update certain demographic fields that will provide the NEOnet staff with the most up to date and accurate contact information we need to provide service.  More information will be communicated through the Technology Coordinators via email and discussed at the next Technology Advisory Committee meeting.
