RFP 470 WAN/Internet/Firewall Access

Questions and Answers

Question:

Hello Mr. Geoghagan,

 As you are listed as the technical contact for this 470 and there isn’t an RFP with further details, please provide the specifics for the 14 school locations requiring services.

 We would need the school names and addresses, along with information for each school, including the number of circuits desired with Internet service, the type of circuits, and bandwidth requirements. If multiple circuits are desired at a specific location, please specify if the circuits should be redundant, bonded, or for separate buildings at the same school. Also, please indicate if SD-WAN is required between schools.

 

Answer: 

Shown below is Attachment A which can be found on Page 22 of the RFP. This includes names and addresses for each school site as well as designated areas to include prices for various speeds.

For your convenience, here is the link to the RFP: https://digitalbell-bucket.s3.amazonaws.com/D9DA1D25-5056-907D-8DC6-24A67963CFC3.pdf

 

Multiple circuits are not desired. Schools will be connected to the WAN with one connection at each school. Sites will be connected to the District Office which houses the connection to the internet/outside world. 

 

The Commercial Vehicle Driving school connection is new and will need a fiber connection to take the WAN back to the District Office.
