Update/Improve Infrastructure (IT)

Assessment of Campus data network infrastructure and identify necessary upgrades and changes that will enable supporting future campus needs; specifically addressing wired, wireless, voice, and video networks. Design of a new network will account for the District’s needs specific to logical infrastructure for the next 10 years. Physical infrastructure will also account for the District’s needs for the next 20 years. The scope includes replacing network core switches, provide a more responsive support structure, preparing for cloud computing, and adaptation of voice over IP systems across the District.

On July 23rd, 2019 the Board of Trustees approved the selection of Vector Resources Inc. dba VectorUSA for the implementation of the IT Network Refresh originally designed by Shandam Consulting. The project has been broken down into multiple phases to  provide flexibility in addressing the changing needs of the campuses. VectorUSA has conducted surveys at each campus to determine equipment and cabling needs. Procurement for the project falls under the California Multiple Award Schedule (CMAS). Infrastructure work has begun at Cypress College and Anaheim Campus.

Implementation work proceeds at the site during the current Stay At Home directive from the State's Governor. VectorUSA is following recommendations from the CDC on social distancing and hygiene practices for all its employees.
