Description

This project supports the ongoing installation and maintenance of the information technology (IT) network infrastructure throughout all Montgomery College facilities, as well as on-premise server operations for applications not suitable for cloud computing. The network-related infrastructure includes cable distribution systems (conduit, fiber optics, wiring); equipment such as routers, switches, wireless access points, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention devices; network management systems, specialized technology tools, monitoring systems, and diagnostic equipment; and remote access technologies. Also included are telephone systems, emergency notification systems, building management systems, and video security systems.

The scope of the project includes the associated electrical, environmental, and backup systems needed to ensure the reliable operation of all equipment. On-premise server operations are supported through the maintenance of a primary data center on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring (TP/SS) campus, and a backup data center on the Rockville campus. Associated with the TP/SS data center is the College's Network Operating Center (NOC), where staff maintain server and network equipment and provide 24/7 monitoring of all College IT systems and services to ensure proper functioning and performance. This includes instructional and administrative applications and all network and Internet-related services used in support of both credit and non-credit programs. This project funds six positions.

Note: The Network Operating Center/Datacenter project's (P076618) FY19 and beyond funding requests and work years have been added to this project. In addition, the project name has changed from Network Infrastructure Support Systems to Network Infrastructure and Server Operations.

Justification

The College networks used for all forms of data, voice, video, and machine communication must be maintained and upgraded continuously to ensure no College location is without the necessary technology capabilities and support. This requires planned replacement and upgrades as technology evolves. As faculty continue to develop more learning programs and methods to meet the increased expectations of students, the technology needs also evolve and change. Without meeting the expectations and requirements developed in the various College strategic and master planning documents, the College will fall behind in its ability to provide needed technology at the appropriate time. State-of-the-market hardware and software capabilities and cloud services are required to attract and serve students, faculty and staff, as well as to serve the business community by upgrading work force technology skills and providing a base for continued economic development in the county. Information technology directly enables the College's mission and is used to facilitate student success; to effectively and efficiently operate the College; and to support the College's growth, development, and community initiatives.
