Specifications include, but are not limited to: Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) requests qualified firms to submit bids to provide Internet service. SIUE currently utilizes two Internet Service Providers including the Illinois Century Network (ICN). The intent IFB is to renew or replace an additional provider for redundancy and flexibility. Bidders must be willing and able to assist SIUE with the transition from the incumbent(s) (if required) to multiple upstream providers. For purposes of business continuity SIUE intends to evaluate bids with regard to path diversity relative to existing service circuits. SIUE connects to the ICN using a buried fiber optic cable, terminating at 87 Supporting Services Drive. Bids that share infrastructure with ICN service will not be considered. Interconnection to the SIUE network should be optical Ethernet based 10GBase-SX. Contracted bandwidth should be dedicated and guaranteed as available to SIUE at all times and not subject to oversubscription of network backbone links. SIUE advertises its IP address space with Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) across two Internet Service Providers using an assigned Autonomous System Number (ASN). SIUE must maintain this ability to advertise IP routes as small as /24 (256 hosts). List any restrictions on the use of the service proposed. SIUE plans to implement IPv6 during this contract, using address space directly assigned to the University and advertised via BGP. Proposed service must be IPv6 compatible; list any restriction on the use of IPv6.
