Summary: The Board of Education is asked to authorize an expenditure not to exceed $240,000 for a new Firewall from ConvergeOne, Inc. for the district. The process was done through an RFP and will be made in conjunction with E-Rate Category 2 services. We expect approximately a 70% discount/rebate on the purchase price and those numbers will be finalized soon as we are working on the E-Rate paperwork. This new firewall we give us the ability to increase our Internet Bandwidth both immediately and into the future.
