Phase One - Upgrade Network Switches
Phase 1 involves upgrading the 560 network switches housed in academic and administrative buildings, making it possible to provide power to the VoIP phones that will be coming as a part of Phase 4. VoIP phones use Power over Ethernet (PoE) to supply power to the device.
The switch upgrade will also increase the speed from desktop to data closet to 1Gb and increase the building to core of the network up to 10Gb.
