White Mountain Library now has a fully gigabit infrastructure. This means there are no bottlenecks in the network that would slow down the Internet or other internal network operations. Nearly every computer in the building can communicate with each other or access websites at full speed and not be slowed down. This will allow the network to grow and handle new technologies for several years to come.
RSL and SCL will be receiving the same upgrade before the end of the year.
WML also has UPnP routing on the patron network. UPnP will be useful for the monthly LAN parties and the game room at WML. Games could not be hosted on the Internet due to firewall constraints and lack of UPnP. UPnP stands for Universal Plug and Play. It is a protocol that games use to tell the router how to handle incoming connections for hosting online games. Most newer multiplayer games and game consoles support the feature. No longer will the XBox Live connection test fail because of the lack of UPnP.
More information will be posted in the future when other network upgrades/changes occur. Have a wonderful day!
