We are seeking qualified bids to provide Wave 2 standard wireless AP’s using devices that are Cisco compatible/equivalent. Building maps will be provided on our website at http://zillahschools.org/rfp.

 

We are also looking to expand port capacity in a few of our data closets using Cisco compatible/equivalent switches that support stacking capabilities and support multiple 10G or higher uplinks to existing infrastructure.

  • Zillah Middle School
    • Looking to replace current switch with updated/higher capacity unit that is Cisco compatible/equivalent supporting stacking and at least 288 10/100/1000 (PoE AF+ or higher) data ports.
    • Add additional data closet switch setup providing 10G or higher uplink ports to MDF, 96 10/100/1000 (PoE AF+ or higher) data ports and support stacking for additional growth.
  • Zillah High School

This will need to include wireless design and installation/configuration as well as outfitting the newly constructed data closets with appropriate equipment that meets current district network design expectations. This will need to include appropriately sized uninterruptable power supply (UPS) units for each closet once final design has been completed by the architectural firm.

State and local authorities are predicting a landslide involving part of Rattlesnake Ridge near Thorp Road in Union Gap. Experts estimate the event could occur between now and sometime in March. Beginning on Monday, January 22, 2018 the Zillah School District will be rerouting all transportation from Interstate 82 to Highway 97 and Konnawac Pass for athletic trips, school field trips, and school business. This is for the safety of our student groups and school employees.
