Which comes first? Infrastructure or Applications? Chicken of the Egg? Applications help drive bandwidth demand and design considerations The more Applications you can envision the more opportunities you have to drive revenue and cost-savings to the Municipality In addition different applications can drive other funding opportunities (think Stimulus Dollars) Where do you start? | Successful Broadband Deployment| April 2009

Infrastructure or Applications? Chicken of the Egg?

Applications help drive bandwidth demand and design considerations

The more Applications you can envision the more opportunities you have to drive revenue and cost-savings to the Municipality

In addition different applications can drive other funding opportunities (think Stimulus Dollars)

Where do you start?

Public Sector Inventory What are the Public Sector Applications that you can bring solutions to? For example in a Municipality you may have the ability to provide applications for: Public Safety Health Care Education Libraries and Community Centers Traffic Management City Utilities and Public Works Smart-Grid All of these solutions that you can create drive revenue to your infrastructure and create cost savings within your community that you can credit to your network operation Also many of these applications never leave your network and have little or no incremental cost to provide | Successful Broadband Deployment| April 2009

What are the Public Sector Applications that you can bring solutions to?

For example in a Municipality you may have the ability to provide applications for:

Public Safety

Health Care

Education

Libraries and Community Centers

Traffic Management

City Utilities and Public Works

Smart-Grid

All of these solutions that you can create drive revenue to your infrastructure and create cost savings within your community that you can credit to your network operation

Also many of these applications never leave your network and have little or no incremental cost to provide

Business Community Inventory What are the economic development and business retention goals of your community? What are the applications that your business community requires? High-Speed Data Services Data Center Requirements Data Security Requirements Advanced Voice and Video Services (Telephone System replacement and High-Definition Video Conferencing Mobility Inventorying your Business Community requirements is important: Brings your Economic Development Staff into your project Business Customers often bring in the most revenue to a project | Successful Broadband Deployment| April 2009

What are the economic development and business retention goals of your community?

What are the applications that your business community requires?

High-Speed Data Services

Data Security Requirements

Advanced Voice and Video Services (Telephone System replacement and High-Definition Video Conferencing

Mobility

Inventorying your Business Community requirements is important:

Brings your Economic Development Staff into your project

Business Customers often bring in the most revenue to a project

Residential Inventory What is the current status of the Telephone, Cable Television and Wireless Companies in your community? Services Reputation Customer Service Reputation Pricing and Value Reputation What are your residents looking for: High Speed Internet More Television Choice Expanded Calling Areas Lower Prices Local Service How likely are your residents to switch services from their current providers? | Successful Broadband Deployment| April 2009

How likely are your residents to switch services from their current providers?

Infrastructure Considerations

Layering the Applications to the Infrastructure http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=104856231320911874963.00046a3ad644f403a42d2 Example of how you layer applications and inventories to devise and infrastructure plan Utilizing the Inventories and Applications you can determine logical network layouts to meet your requirements Begin with a core infrastructure and layer on additional infrastructure for residential and business requirements You do not need different networks to serve your different customer sets-a combined infrastructure is a more resilient infrastructure | Successful Broadband Deployment| April 2009

Example of how you layer applications and inventories to devise and infrastructure plan

Utilizing the Inventories and Applications you can determine logical network layouts to meet your requirements

Begin with a core infrastructure and layer on additional infrastructure for residential and business requirements

You do not need different networks to serve your different customer sets-a combined infrastructure is a more resilient infrastructure

Infrastructure Considerations What existing Municipal resources can you utilize? Rights-of-Way Municipal land for cabinet or hub sites Municipal Buildings for Operations and Equipment Services such as Human Resources, Accounting and Legal Not just physical assets: Economic Development becomes a promoter of your services Public Works may provide infrastructure services Locates Land and Building Maintenance Council members championing your cause | Successful Broadband Deployment| April 2009

Infrastructure includes how you interconnect to the rest of the world for services

Fiber Infrastructure Determine Core Routes Physically Redundant Pass as many “Big Business” and Municipal Buildings as possible with Core Ensure you have estimate growth capacity for Core Route More Fiber More Conduit Don’t undersize your network-the incremental cost of additional fiber strands is small Place Fiber cabinets in locations that minimize the possibility of them being damaged by traffic or vandalism At Public Works locations can be secure Attempt to place off of Right-of-Way where future construction might take place Same rules go for distribution fiber facilities-protect as much as possible | Successful Broadband Deployment| April 2009

Determine Core Routes

Physically Redundant

Pass as many “Big Business” and Municipal Buildings as possible with Core

Ensure you have estimate growth capacity for Core Route

More Fiber

More Conduit
