Specifications include, but are not limited to: Recent world events such as the current COVID pandemic have highlighted the need for a modern data network infrastructure capable of supporting teleworkers and remote workers. To meet the goal of having a flexible information technology infrastructure that can adapt to changing circumstances and natural disasters, NNDSS is proposing to replace the infrastructure of each site and implement necessary upgrades that will enable each location to support state-of-the-art information technology (IT) (voice, data, and video). This includes the ability to have facility-wide information sharing, files, databases, applications, reporting, printing capability, VOIP telephony, and electronic mail connectivity. It also includes enterprise-wide resource sharing, security, and intranet, and Internet access. Video teleconferencing must also be included to facilitate remote work during the COVID pandemic. To support all of the networking and systems updates, NNDSS will utilize a central data center that will be accessible from all office locations and remote workers. The data center will include networking security, switching, virtualized server infrastructure, power, monitoring,and all necessary licensing to support those services.By purchasing new hardware, DSS will be able to replace the old equipment in a manner that will provide for the least amount of downtime possible. By running both the old and new systems in parallel, the rollout will have minimal impact on business operations.Because of this, the proposed hardware and software must be compatible with existing systems.
