The Computing Network Grows Bigger, Faster, and Stronger

Has Nazarene Bible College's computing network been working out? NBC's network is nearly bulletproof, with no vulnerability to Kryptonite. The network currently has over a 99.9% uptime rating, and operates at blazing speed. How to improve? In order to serve a growing number of users in a technologically-diverse world, NBC's network must constantly evolve.

At the heart of the system is a high speed DS3 connection, the same used by many ISPs. New cutting-edge network switches make full use of the DS3's abilities. If this were a water pipe, it would fill your bathtub in milliseconds. Updates to servers and the network's overall design facilitate this, providing the performance critical in today's campus, library, and online education environments.

Additionally, network security is an ever-increasing concern. Enhancing this are new state-of-the-art hardware firewalls. They are ferocious at blocking intrusions and malware, scalable for future growth, and flexible for optimal network fit. They provide an unyielding frontline defense.

NBC is committed to maintaining unsurpassed connections for all students, both on campus and online. This commitment requires constant evolution to continuously exceed expectations. Current improvements guarantee this ongoing commitment to NBC's users, nearby and around the globe.
