The Nortel to Avaya phone system conversion started in the fall of 2010. This conversion was to replace old phone systems with new ones based on Internet Protocol (IP) technology. The Avaya phone system, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), allows voice calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line.
With input from North Dakota state government agencies, K-12 schools, and universities, the 2013-15 Statewide IT Plan outlines the future of technology for the upcoming biennium.
“Partnerships: Building IT Together” outlines our initiatives and identifies our partners. Together with those partners, we will provide well-connected, effective, reliable and efficient technology services to the citizens and students of North Dakota.
To better serve our customers, ITD will be making changes to the wireless network. On January 3, 2013, ITD will be disabling support for WPA-AES encryption for STAGEnet-Member. ITD will only support WPA2-AES, often called WPA2-Enterprise. If mobile devices do not offer this option in the wireless setup, upgrades to the software or drivers might be required. Please contact your IT Coordinator if you are unsure that your device will support WPA2-AES.
This change will enhance wireless support to the large numbers of high speed clients.
Effective November 2012 two billing rates, Liquid Office and Mainframe CPU have changed.
Please feel free to contact Greg Hoffman with any questions at 328-4006.
PowerSchool, a student information system, is being utilized by all public schools in North Dakota.
The PowerSchool Team celebrated the end of the implementation process.
A new section called Technology Landscapes was created on ITD's website to share information developed from relevant and rapidly evolving topics. The first hot topic being discussed is State of Mobile Hardware. The purpose of Technology Landscapes is to acknowledge ever-changing technologies and relay relevant information to you, our customers. The goal is to share material that will provide insight on various topics, encourage communication among stakeholders, and enrich planning and decision-making processes.
