Massive Expansion for Irvington’s IP Cloud

IHS expands its IP pool nearly four fold

Over Thanksgiving break,  Mr. Johns was at school multiplying the school’s IP pool nearly four times. The way a network works is there is a router with a certain amount of IP addresses. Every device that connects to the router is a assigned a temporary IP address. The more addresses that are taken, the slower the network works. So, Mr.Johns added nearly three thousand more addresses to the school’s general wi-fi by adding more hotspots around school. Mr.Johns and and the rest of ITA are hoping to create a whole new Wi-Fi system that mimicks many universities such that there is only one network with many extenders. With the new IP addresses, the network moves much faster and is much harder to bog down.
