Question: Could you fill in details about the network topography you are looking for? Do you want your schools on a fully meshed network or more of a hub and spoke arrangement? Bandwidth needs on the links to the individual schools?

Answer: We want all schools to terminate in a hub and spoke connection back to our datacenter in the Lebanon High School (1700 S. 5th St, Lebanon, OR 97355).  We are looking for connections for the following schools/locations.

c.) Lacomb (34110 E Lacomb Rd, Lebanon, OR 97355) –Speeds 50 Mb tiered up to 1 Gb (or highest speed available for a given connection if max speed is lower than 1 Gb).


2.)
Question: How long of a contract are you seeking for the school connections?

Answer: We are seeking a 3-year contract.

3.)
Question: Are you looking at a point-to-point wireless or lit-fiber option?

Answer: We are looking at either.

4.)
Question: Would a transition contract be an option to allow a vendor to transition from providing one type of connection (ie. Point-to-Point wireless) to another type of connection (ie. fiber)?

Answer: Yes, this would be acceptable.

5.)
Question: One of your sites has an internet connection that needs upgrading but has a year left on the contract.  Are you willing to break the contract early?

Answer: This will depend on whether the current contract holder is willing to allow us to break the contract.  We will evaluate bids and then decide whether we need to proceed with a request to break our current contract.
