The Information Communications Technology Department provides a multitude of services to the City of Belen employees and ultimately the citizens of Belen.

The services range from desktop computer support to design and implementation of wide area networks. The focus of the ICT department will be to provide end-users with effective and cost-efficient tools through the use of advanced technology. We continually strive to offer state-of-the-art hardware and software applications, which in the end will provide the foundation for e-government and e-commerce services.

Our hardware infrastructure consists mostly of Dell workstations and servers. Data and telephone switching is built on HP ProCurve technology. Our telephone communications is VoIP by ShoreTel over a wide area network comprised of fiber optics at facilities located along Becker Ave. and a wireless backhaul for facilities located on South Main Street, North Main Street and Eagle Park.  Our Multi-Function Printer fleet consists of eight Konica Minolta Bizhubs scattered throughout all city facilities. Each MFP is managed by an enterprise wide application that monitors each job tracking paper and toner usage. This results in a greater return on investment whereby controlling waste and unnecessary printing and copying. Only authenticated users have access to each device.

We stand poised and committed to meeting the challenge of moving into the "Information Age" and stand ready to provide the best possible products and services to end-users.
