BMV offices to close for half-days for network upgrades

Feb 11, 2019

The Rockland branch office of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles at 360 Old County Road will be closed Wednesday, Feb. 13, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., to allow for computer and phone system upgrades.

The Bangor office, at 1129 Union St., will be closed Wednesday, Feb. 27, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the same purpose.

The upgrades are part of the State of Maine Office of Information Technology “Maine Network Modernization Project,” which will improve wireless security and networking equipment, as well as upgrade all telephones to VOIP.

The entire State of Maine Wide Area Network is in the process of being upgraded by OIT and encompasses more than 390 sites. The work will result in infrastructure improvements that will allow for easier upgrades in the future, improved ability to bypass outage points, and better security overall.
