RFP bid item 2

We are also looking for successful bids to work with our current Zillah High School modernization project and support the expansion of our high school campus. 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.
