Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:Washington State University (WSU) located in Pullman, Washington, is releasing this Request for Proposals to SIP Trunking Telephony Service Providers for the WSU Pullman Campus Telephone System.Washington State University is looking to partner with a Tier 1 SIP Telephony Telecommunications Provider to carry local and long-distance telephony using SIP Trunking. We currently use SIP Trunks to a carrier that brings service to the Pullman Campus for local and long-distance traffic. WSU also has run a small SIP Trunking network to some of our sites around Washington over the state's K20 data network for more than 10 years.WSU is aware that it is often difficult to bring reliable and redundant telecommunications circuits to Pullman and negotiate the last mile to campus. WSU wishes to move the Telephony SIP Trunk Demarcation point off the WSU Pullman Campus to another site mutually agreeable to both WSU and Vendor. WSU will be responsible for bringing circuits and service to the agreed-upon Meet-Me location over redundant, diverse paths. Possible Meet-Me Demarc sites could be Seattle (i.e. Westin Building), Spokane, Portland, Boise, or other Pacific Northwest locations that are mutually acceptable. Design proposals could involve multiple Meet-Me locations to provide redundancy and resiliency. However, WSU expects a response with a configuration using the Westin Building in Seattle, but will consider additional alternative sites if they are located where the States K20 Network has a Meet-Me presence.Regardless of agreed-upon Meet-Me location, Provider would need to show how they have redundant, geographically diverse paths into that location for SIP Telephony Connections from their backbone network and the PSTN.Vendor will provide, provision and configure a full Session Border Controller for SIP Telephony Traffic to communicate with WSU connection at the Meet-Me Locations Demarc. (This Provider SBC does not need to be dedicated for WSU SIP Traffic.)
