Members of the Cape Girardeau County Commission recently gave their approval of a purchase totaling $93,943 for new wireless equipment and network switching at the majority of buildings within Cape Girardeau County. Officials say the project will allow Cape Girardeau County to stretch the use of networking equipment which was put in at the new Cape Girardeau County Courthouse and consolidated dispatch center last year. Officials say they had absolutely awesome results with this equipment that they utilized at the courthouse. This purchase will include a total of seventeen switches and twenty three wireless access points across every building in Cape Girardeau County that is not yet on the new system, not including the former Cape Girardeau County Courthouse. Officials say they will wait to add the new equipment at the old courthouse until they make future plans for the facility.
