Project to improve the research infrastructure at the São Carlos School of Engineering (EESC-USP)


In recent years, EESC has been investing heavily in improving the quality and security of IT services used by all EESC researchers, either with the Unit's own budget or with resources from the Information Technology Superintendence (STI-USP) from the University of São Paulo, or with funds from funding agencies, such as FAPESP's Technical Reserve for Institutional Research Infrastructure (RTI). Among some examples of investments in information technology that received funding from FAPESP in recent years, the following could be mentioned: acquisition, installation and expansion of the HP BladeSystem C7000 Server; expansion and improvement of the Wi-Fi signal coverage of the wireless USPnet network in the different buildings of the EESC; modernization of active equipment of local networks (switches, router and firewall) of the EESC and its devices that complement the local network (no-breaks, access points, IP monitoring cameras, access control, VoIP telephony, etc.), air conditioning of the Data Center of EESC, among others. Thus, in order to maintain the proper functioning of this IT infrastructure, this plan presents demands related to the acquisition of new wireless network antennas and no-breaks. Furthermore, it is necessary to adapt the Lightning Protection Systems, thus avoiding damage to equipment caused by lightning.Another demand presented in this plan is the contracting of a fire prevention and firefighting system project, which is of great importance for the safety of our researchers, equipment and research. Finally, we also request that our bibliographic collection be updated to better meet the demands of postgraduate programs and researchers in general. (AU)
