Should the Applicant discover that the bidder is on red light status, or if the FCC classifies the bidder as on red-light status before work is performed and invoices are paid, the contract will be null and void and the applicant will have no payment obligations to the bidder.

Project Narrative

The District will be adding a total of 60 CAT6 drops – 40 in the HS and 20 in the ES. The new “core” switch in the HS will connect to the two existing switches in the HS and the two new ones requested. The core will connect to one switch in the ES, one switch in AG, and one switch in the MS (1Gbit, SMF - except MS is MMF). The core will also directly connect to the new caching server. The WiFi solution is flexible, we just need centrally managed WiFi with the ability to separate SSIDs on different VLANs. Prefer APs that support 802.11ac and backwards compatible with 2.4GHz devices. The District will require installation & configuration of all new equipment. New core switch will need L3 routing & OSPF setup between it and the main switch for each building. Subnet plan will be provided.
