First published Monday, February 9, 2009
The University awarded a contract for IP transit services to Cogent Communications, Washington, DC, for an estimated $144,000.
These IP transit services are for 1000+ Mbps of Internet bandwidth. Cogent Communications is the only vendor that can provide services to the University and take advantage of an existing AT&T "gigaMAN" link terminating at 221 N. LaSalle Street.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. The internet transit service is critical to UIC's day to day operation as it connects the campus networks with the internet and provides the necessary backup paths to UIUC and UIS campuses for production services.
