Hardware and Printer Standards


TMCC has established a list of supported hardware and software products for systems located in administrative work areas and in academic computer labs. This list is in the IT Core Services Catalog.

Standards were created in support of the following reasons:

  • As the college continues to grow, the ability of TMCC's existing technical support staff to support all of TMCC's systems is limited. Standard configurations ensure faster response time and faster troubleshooting time, since all systems are configured the same. End result: easier configuration, management, troubleshooting, and upgrading.
  • Support staff unfamiliar with disparate systems may cause users to spend time attempting to support themselves.
  • Provides a long-term working relationship with a mainstream computer vendor which makes it more likely that special service or pricing can be obtained for faculty, staff, and students.
  • Eliminates variables that must be considered with IT Services and deployment, network access, and hardware configuration/reconfiguration.
  • Positions the college to run newer software without requiring upgrades, eliminating future costs.
