The school department will assume the leadership role for the management of the Town Municipal Area
Network (MAN). This will include the creation of standards (physical layer, protocol layer (IP address
schemes)), and will manage the switching, routing, V-LAN configurations and firewall for the MAN. As
new network services are proposed, (e.g. telephone, security monitoring), planning will be done in
coordination and cooperation with the Town and all appropriate departments.
Network electronics throughout the infrastructure of the Town and schools will need periodic upgrade
and expansion. Infrastructure improvements will be identified and included in technology budget
planning, and capital requests.
