for an OC-3 SONET circuit from the Urbana-Champaign campus to the Chicago campus (Bid # K212). The Computing and Communications Services Office (CCSO) of UIUC would like to acquire an OC-3 SONET circuit from Urbana-Champaign campus to the Chicago campus for the purpose of connectivity between campuses. Our primary goal is to acquire a one to three year contract for this circuit. UIUC's current leased circuit's contract will expire in September, 2001. CCSO is looking for a data communications vendor that can provide UIUC with an OC-3 SONET circuit that must be a highly reliable connection since it will include traffic for critical University administrative applications.
