Lots going on...

When it rains it pours around here - Lots of exciting things going on:
1) We officially awarded our next generation WAN - I'm really excited about the speeds being promised.
2) We were approved for our AS number with ARIN and can begin setting up our router now
3) We received our extra high speed BGP router from VYATTA ( http://www.vyatta.com ) a 2502 appliance. This means that we can finally set up our new ORION (http://www.orion.on.ca/ ) link and our new improved Internet connections.
4) I received my first trial set of Linksys 802.11N access points for two of my high schools - Widdifield and West Ferris.

On average, our schools will be connected at speeds 50 time their current rate, and our Internet pipe will be bumped by a factor of 10 (ignoring the sites that are peered on Orion) and wireless access will be in every classroom.

This will be a new technology generation for our school networks.

Hi Doug, I don't know what all the acronyms stand for (yet) but I'm loving the sound of fifty times faster! anne
