Technical Infrastructure

The AACC network consists of a mixture of many technologies to provide data, voice, and video services to our students, faculty and staff. We strive for simplicity through standardization, but at the same time realize the need to choose technologies that meet the college’s needs.

  • The College supports more than 4,500 desktops, laptops and tablets
  • We support over 200 file/application servers, with operating systems that include Windows 2003-2008 Server, Linux, Solaris and AIX. These systems connect via an enterprise wide fiber optic gigabit Ethernet backbone and wireless LANs spanning 25 buildings with the help of routers, switches, hubs and remote access devices. Desktops are running at 100Mb over the network.
  • Data and video infrastructure services are provided via links from Arnold Campus to our other locations:
    • 155Mb fiber to Glen Burnie Town Center
    • 600Mb link to Arundel Mills and Cyber Center and Professional Training (CCPT)
  • Internet services all originate at the Arnold campus and are provided via 500Mb fiber connectivity through the Maryland Research and Education Network (MDREN). In addition there is a 25Mb fiber connection through Comcast which provides limited redundancy in our Internet point of presence to the campus in the event that the MDREN connectivity goes down.
