Tentative ISC Networking Budget Assumptions FY 2002
The Network operating budget is about 78% direct charge. It is assumed that this percentage will increase over the next few years.
Increased Internet bandwidth, and reliability are critical. Internet traffic could nearly double. Expense increases (bandwidth only) are projected at 15%.
Minimize remote access expenses by decommissioning service as soon as possible.
Revenues from IP addresses will increase 10% from growth and cost increases.
Increased Internet bandwidth reliability and redundancy are critical. Internet2 participation is assumed. Full costs of Internet 2 participation should not be in central service fee. There should be an institutional subsidy for Internet2 connectivity and participation. (Should ISC apply for RFDF grant again?)
