NETWORK SERVICES

The Berks County Intermediate Unit manages a Regional Wide Area Network (RWAN). This network connects the BCIU, 16 of 18 Berks county public school districts, and the two career and technology centers to each other and delivers cost-effective Internet service to all members by volume purchasing and distribution through the regional network.

The Berks RWAN also connects member districts to PAIUnet. This is a statewide, high-speed educational network that enables educators and students all over Pennsylvania to create, communicate, collaborate, and share valuable resources to enhance student learning. PAIUnet connects all 29 Intermediate Units and their member school districts throughout the Commonwealth. It also connects public library systems and charter schools.

Additionally, the BCIU may provide limited network and systems support and consulting services to schools in Berks county.
