Illinois Century Network staff and E-rate category 2 master contract vendors will discuss best practices for implementing a robust, reliable and secure high speed and scalable broadband network, within a school campus. Topics covered will include wireless site surveys, dealing with interference, securing the network, sizing for demand, wiring for future growth, network architecture choices and use of the state master contracts. The focus will be on E-rate category 2 eligible equipment and services. The state master contract vendors were selected via an E-rate compliant bid process, thus, if used, allows the K-12 E-rate administrative burden to be significantly reduced.
