Birmingham Community Charter High School in Van Nuys boasts the largest campus in the Los Angeles Unified School System. Since the school was granted its charter in 2009, BCCHS has undergone an extensive upgrade to its wired and wireless network and built a modern, secure, virtualized cloud data-center to support student learning.

BCCHS is one of many area schools that has adopted a One-to-One technology learning initiative, to ensure that every student has access to at least one internet-connected device – any time, any place on campus.

The California Community Foundation (CCF) has served Los Angeles County for 100 years, stewarding nearly 1,600 funds and $1.7 billion in assets to address some of the core concerns of the community. CCF sponsors a range of competitive grants to other local non-profits in arts, education, health care, and transition-aged youth and housing and economic development throughout Los Angeles County.

According to the US government, there are still 56 million business telephone connections using legacy landline phone systems. As someone who lives life by the adage, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," I understand why some organizations are reluctant to give up the communications medium they have relied upon for decades.
