Meeting Reminders:

The next Technology Advisory Committee Meeting is Thursday November 5th, 2015 at 9:00am. 

 

Firewall Upgrade

The long anticipated firewall upgrade was completed on Thursday October 29th.  This software upgrade not only supports additional throughput to meet the needs of our growing consortium, but also prepares us for a future hardware upgrade next year.

 

Core Switch Upgrade

The core switch was successfully upgraded October 14th during our normal maintenance window.  The new core switches at both the primary and DR site give us 40Gbit throughput capabilities and prepare us for future bandwidth needs.

 

IP Video

We are rapidly approaching the deployment of IP video services that will seamlessly blend voice and video together finally making collaboration as easy as dialing a six digit extension.  The solutions we are implementing will bridge voice calls, video calls, mobile devices and WebEx sessions into an easy to use platform.  We are also almost complete with video enabling our two large meeting rooms which will give us the option to start recording and hosting all our meetings via video.  Of course onsite participation is always preferred, but if you miss a meeting or need to attend remotely we will have that option going forward.

 

Network Assessment

NEOnet is working with a couple strategic partners to offer free network audits to any customers who would like a comprehensive review of their current network infrastructure.  The assessment involves visiting each closet to determine what equipment you have and what should be replaced in moving toward a 10Gbit infrastructure.  If you are interest in scheduling a network assessment, please reach out to zolla[at]neonet[dot]org and we will get that setup for you.

 

If you have any questions or need any additional details please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email zolla[at]neonet[dot]org.
