Item #1

Leased Lit Fiber

The school is seeking leased lit fiber proposals to address the building’s LAN network needs.  We are looking for the leased lit fiber to deliver speeds of at least 500mb to our single location at 1420-22 Chestnut St. Please include costs associated with higher speeds as well. We are requesting a proposal to enter into a month-to-month contract for delivery of said service to a single identified site. The service contract will extend from a period ranging from July 1st, 2018 through June 30th, 2019. We will also accept pricing on multi-year contracts for a 2 or 3 year term with option for 1 year contract extension at school’s option. No auto-renewals will be accepted. PETCHS reserves the right to extend the contract on a MTM basis if so needed or cancel services at any time without penalty. The service will commence sometime after July 1st 2018 and will/may correspond with receipt of the SLD funding letter for the services.

Additionally, the provider will make available whatever number of global IP addresses required for the school’s needs. Initial request is for six global IPs to be routed back to the PETCHS network. Handoff to PETCHS must be RJ45 Ethernet and at the termination location identified by the school. Please contact Bill Carberry at carberryb@petchs.org if you need a site visit.

Installation of listed services is to include all corresponding required fiber and CAT 6 patch cables, testing/certifications, labeling (as per school’s directive on wrap-around, tear-resistant labels). The Fiber must be capable of addressing initial GB-level traffic and migrate to future 10GB traffic. Any needed fiber termination cabinets, network racks, inter-duct, corresponding fiber patch cables (to be coordinated with equipment vendor), etc. is to be included and detailed accordingly. 

The proposal should include all costs, clearly identifying specific costs of items/services and what is and what is not e-rate eligible, as well as the monthly cost to deliver the aforementioned speeds of at least 500MB.  

Also, whatever network equipment is needed to light the fiber backbone being installed as defined above must be included in this proposal.  Each closet should contain a main fiber-uplink layer 3 10/100/1000 switch to address backbone connectivity and interconnection of other existing switches.  An MDF main switch is being sought which addresses the interconnecting of all remote IDF network fiber connections back to the main closet at GB speeds…with a desire for potential 10GB future upgrade.  Said switch(es) solution should also have a minimum of 8 (eight) 10/100/1000 RJ45 ports and with potential 10GB port opportunities for future considerations, and must be Juniper compatible to be conducive to our existing setup.

Also seeking a firewall solution for the MDF with capacity of several LAN 10/100/1000 RJ45 ports and potential 10GB upgrade options along with corresponding WAN/Internet Service uplinks (minimum of 2 ports).  Firewall will be servicing over 600+ students/staff traffic in an educational setting leveraging internal resources and new 100+MB Internet Access service.

ALL EQUIPMENT SOLUTIONS MUST INCLUDE BREAKDOWN OF ALL COSTS (MODULES, LICENSES, INSTALLATION/CONFIGURATIONS, ETC.) AND BE JUNIPER-BASED OR JUNIPER COMPATIBLE.  ALL JUNIPER-EQUIVALENT PROPOSALS WILL BE ACCEPTED AND EVALUATED.

The proposal should include all costs, clearly identifying specific costs of items/services and what is and what is not e-rate eligible.
