Infrastructure & Wireless
The networking team concentrated on infrastructure upgrades with the installation of new switches providing 10G connectivity between buildings. In addition, these new switches will prepare the College for future VoiP telecom installations. Networking also provided support to CUNY as they installed the final phase of the new PaloAlto firewall. Finally, on the wireless side, in addition to the continued rollout of additional access points throughout the campus, students are now using ClearPass for wireless authentication providing for easier connectivity and seamless access throughout the campus.
OITS networking deployed (32) Power over Ethernet access switches in preparation for the Telecom VOIP phone migration. We also added redundant network connections to each telecom closet along with new uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). OITS is proud to announce that we have expanded the ClearPass Access Management System to include CSI-Guest network which allows external visitors access to the wireless network.
