Bandwidth Billing Options (Subnet)
Components of this option
- Bill bandwidth at a subnet level for “excessive” bandwidth once a “baseline” usage is developed.
- This could be based on the number of billable IP addresses in the subnet.
- Billing out in aggregate is easier to do than at port level.
- Development and operational costs to do this are lower than previous option, but not inconsequential.
- Nearly 50% of main campus buildings are shared, making it difficult to bill.
