Tentative ISC Networking Budget Assumptions FY 2002 - 05 (Continued)
Sufficient Internet bandwidth, reliability and redundancy are critical. Internet traffic is doubling every six months. Circuit expense increases are projected at 25% annually.
Internet2 participation is assumed. Full costs of Internet2 participation should not be in Central Service Fees. There should be an institutional subsidy for Internet2 connectivity and participation. Networking will continue to seek $150K for Internet2 through FY 2005.
ISC in conjunction with the Schools applied for an Internet2 RFDF grant of $225K in FY 2002. FY 2002 rates assume receipt of the grant request in full.
Electronics costs are based on a three year replacement cycle.
ISC will upgrade the routing core and do an additional 25 Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet building upgrades.
