Network Upgrade


The Library is upgrading their existing network infrastructure by replacing end-of-life equipment with newer switches, and by extending network infrastructure to utilize fiber connections between each Network closet. The outcome will be an upgraded, fully-functioning and future-proof network infrastructure that includes a total of at least 1464 ports on our switches; the network will integrate with an existing Aruba wireless network, firewall and 300 mg internet line coming into the building. The Network will be flexible and will allow for future growth and expansion. The library is planning VOIP, VDI, and IP security camera projects in the near future. We currently have five network closets located in the lower level of the main library building, and one network closet across the street from the main library building at 1020 SW Washburn Ave. With the network upgrade, we are adding an additional network closet, which will be located on the 2nd floor of the main building.
