Do you have an estimated number of SFPs, uplink modules, or even IDFs? 6/29/2022 12:16:55 PM We don’t have an estimated number of SFPs, uplink modules, or IDFs. There are many different floor plans throughout the district. The switches should be stacked to each other within an IDF rack using the stack backplane of the switch – with some type of stacking cable. The 20gb port-channel is the uplink from each IDF to the MDF. 7/6/2022 8:50:47 AM With the 20G port-channel in a stack do you want the uplinks to be connected to two different switches in the stack (multi-chassis link agg) or will they be connected to the same switch in the stack? 6/29/2022 12:17:37 PM Switches should be stacked using the stack backplane for whatever switch model is submitted. Each switch is stacked to the next, with a redundant link coming from the last switch in the stack to the first switch in the stack. The redundant link should only be applied with three or more switches. The 20gb port-channel uplink to the MDF should be connected to two different switches within a stack. 7/6/2022 8:51:55 AM Can we provide a 5 year license option vs 3 year plus the additional 1 years requested and update the pricing sheet to reflect the cost breakdown? 6/29/2022 12:17:55 PM The 3 year plus the additional years are preferred due to Erate parameters. 7/6/2022 8:54:02 AM To confirm the RFP says long-haul SFPs. Is all fiber single-mode or multi-mode? 6/29/2022 12:18:06 PM All fiber is single more fiber. 7/6/2022 8:55:32 AM Do you require support for OSPF and BGP in all closet switches and Fiber aggregation switches? 6/30/2022 8:58:45 AM Support for OSPF and BGP is required on the fiber aggregation switches 7/18/2022 2:26:24 PM • Switches must support and include layer-3 functionality. Approximately how many routes at the edge (closets) per switch stack? Approximately how many routes at the distribution fiber switches? Does BGP need to be supported at all switch stacks including the edge (closets)? • Switches must connect at a minimum of 2x10Gbps port-channel Approximately how many switch stacks will be included in this bid? • Switches must include layer 3 licensing (OSPF, BGP) Is BGP a requirement or only mentioned as an example? • Is stack power required or only data stacking? 6/30/2022 2:00:51 PM Switches in IDF closets will connect to fiber aggregation switch via layer 2. There will be approximately two routes at the distribution switch. BGP needs to be supported at the fiber aggregation switch The number of switch stacks throughout the district will vary from one single switch in an IDF to (2) 8 member stacks in an IDF. There are many different IDF configurations. BGP is a requirement for the fiber aggregation switch. Stack power is not required – just data stacking. 7/18/2022 2:27:40 PM For Managed Services, please provide the coverage windows (7X24, 8X5, etc) for each of the following managed requirements and Service Level Agreement requirements for each: o Monitoring o Incident / Event response o Problem Management o Change Management 7/1/2022 8:31:38 AM Monitoring – 7x24 Incident/Event response – 7x24 Problem management – 7x24 Change management – 7x24 7/18/2022 2:28:26 PM For Managed Services, what ticket system will we be required to integrate with? 7/1/2022 8:32:34 AM The ticketing system that managed services should interface with is Cherwell. 7/18/2022 2:29:19 PM Does the School District currently leverage any network monitoring or management tools, if so what are they and is there a requirement for the Managed Services provider to integrate with them? 7/1/2022 8:34:04 AM The district currently uses Orion Solar Winds for full integration, along with a couple of other tools that rely on SNMP or ping. No requirement for managed services to integrate with district network monitoring tools. Managed services should provide a monitoring tool and provide district employee’s access. 7/18/2022 2:30:10 PM For Managed Services, is there a requirement for onsite response from the Managed Services provider for break/fix or equipment replacement, or will the School District provide the resources for onsite response? 7/1/2022 8:35:34 AM Yes, for MIBS, having one or two people on site at the district technology operations center will ensure better cohesiveness. 7/18/2022 2:31:01 PM Is there a specific manufacture for the Fiber LIU` and components? 7/1/2022 11:41:32 AM No specific LIU manufacturer. 7/7/2022 8:42:43 AM Can Fusion connections be used for the splicing and termination of the single mode fiber since it would have the least amount of DB loss? Hotmelts are being phased out 7/1/2022 11:42:06 AM Fusion connections are acceptable. 7/7/2022 8:42:06 AM No footage is specified, should contractors use an average footage between the IDF and MDF so that all contractors are basing pricing on the same scope? We can still provide price per linear footage but having an average length would be more competitive. 7/1/2022 11:42:33 AM There is no average footage identified for each site as all sites have the ability to be significantly different. Here are the numbers we are basing average footage on for sites, based by school type: HS – average length 5,150 ft MS – average length 2,670 ft ES – average length 2,425 ft 7/7/2022 8:41:25 AM Can we request additional school prints? Some prints are incomplete. 7/1/2022 11:42:55 AM Here is a link to a share for the Cat2 requested floor plans: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AnjAuIDGEM-h29c6_pt5YTFmahzUsA?e=Rfi2rN 7/12/2022 1:20:38 PM Will any of the equipment be required to be mounted in a Two Post Rack? 7/6/2022 8:47:33 AM There will be MDFs and IDFs in some schools that have 2post racks. 7/7/2022 8:40:11 AM Is the awardee required to remove the existing equipment and required for off-site disposal of the removed equipment? 7/6/2022 8:48:16 AM The awardee is required to remove the current switching equipment and leave it in a designated area at the site. District reserves the right of first refusal and some equipment has asset numbers that will need to be disposed of through a district asset system. 7/7/2022 8:39:20 AM Do the SNMP NIC Cards need to be programmed and installed prior to UPS installation? Or is that client Responsibility? 7/6/2022 8:48:56 AM The SNMP NIC card should be programmed and installed prior to the installation completion. 7/7/2022 8:38:40 AM Will the Equipment be installed during Normal Business hours M-f 8/5? 7/6/2022 8:49:18 AM Work will be expected to be completed during non-school hours. Which will evening and night work. 7/8/2022 12:20:03 PM The RFP does not address the environment that the fiber shall be installed in. Indoor Plenum or Riser, outdoor, Indoor/Outdoor Plenum or Riser. All these cable types have different cost associated with them. What should be the basis for the price? 7/6/2022 9:39:53 AM A large majority of the current fiber is indoor plenum or riser. These are either in a conduit or in a ceiling. However, there are several aerial fiber runs. These are to modular or portable classrooms. Most of these modular classroom connections are limited to one or two runs per site. 7/8/2022 12:18:22 PM In the event a site require EMT conduit installation, is this to be included in the per foot price, or would this be handled as a change order to the contract? 7/6/2022 9:40:06 AM EMT conduit installation per foot price should be included in the initial bid. Not a change order. 7/8/2022 12:20:48 PM In the event a pathway requires new fire sleeves to be installed to be compliant with code, should this be included in the installed price per foot or would this be handled as a change order to the contract? 7/6/2022 9:40:54 AM New fire sleeves price should be included in the initial bid. The price should be in the initial bid so that if it is needed during the installation, it will be covered by Erate procedures. 7/8/2022 12:21:43 PM Should it be assumed that all fiber installed will be installed in existing pathways that the current fiber resides? This assumption would include that the pathway is usable, free and clear of debris or blockages. If pathway construction and/or repair are required, would this be a change order to the contract? 7/6/2022 9:41:09 AM All fiber should be installed in existing pathways. Possible pathway construction should be built into your initial bid. 7/8/2022 12:22:34 PM Many schools in the district are using conduit as pathway for the fiber optic backbone. Should contractor assume that all these pathways are passable, with enough space for the additional fiber optic cable, and with a pull string for installation of new fiber? Otherwise, should contractor assume that it will be required to fish existing conduits and innerducts to install new fiber optic cable? 7/6/2022 9:41:19 AM Best answer to this would be yes. Throughout Hillsborough County Schools you’ll come across all of these scenarios. The majority of the existing pathways should be passable and can be re-used. 7/8/2022 12:23:23 PM Can contractor at their option abate existing fiber for the purpose of using it as a pull string to install new fiber optic cabling? 7/6/2022 9:41:28 AM This can be an option but will need to be fully coordinated with the district support. Schools cannot go without network connectivity during the school day. 7/8/2022 12:24:28 PM What is the procedure a contractor should follow if they encounter a crushed/broken underground pipe that is unpassable? 7/6/2022 9:41:37 AM Broken underground or crushed pipe will need to be addressed and fully coordinated with district support. We need to coordinate a pathway and get approval by internal permitting. Then coordinate day and time with school activities. 7/8/2022 12:25:30 PM Will innerduct be required to be installed anywhere in the project? 7/6/2022 9:41:45 AM Interduct should be installed inside of shared conduits. 7/8/2022 12:26:22 PM Is there a requirement for Armored jacket fiber? 7/6/2022 9:41:53 AM There is no requirement for armored jacket 7/8/2022 12:27:36 PM The RFP denotes Patch cords to be provided both with the switch installation (5.3.4 1st bullet fourth sub bullet) and with the per foot fiber price (5.3.4 Second bullet, 4th sub bullet). Where should the fiber optic patch cords prices be included? 7/6/2022 9:42:04 AM Fiber patch cords should be listed on pricing sheet under ‘fiber equipment per closet’. 7/8/2022 12:29:13 PM Will the contractor be required to pull permits through HCPS facility and construction department for each site? If so, will there be a rough in and final inspection made of each site installation? 7/6/2022 9:42:18 AM Permits (cable pathways, floor penetrations, fire sleeves, etc.) need to be shown on floor plans and submitted through our internal permitting process. This can be set up after award. The district will have a final inspection each site before signing off on completed work. 7/8/2022 12:31:13 PM It is stated that contractor should remove existing fiber terminations. Is this to include the LIU and cable to be coiled in the ceiling above the rack? 7/6/2022 9:42:27 AM LIU should be removed from rack and cable should be coiled in the ceiling or neatly tucked into rack. 7/8/2022 12:32:58 PM The Pricing sheet has a line for “Fiber equipment per closet (patch panels, etc. if not included in installed price)”. The formula for this indicates 10,305 closets. Should contractor assume that there is 10,305 IDF/MDF in the district? Is it correct to assume that this line is optional if contractor provided all the included items in the Per Foot price? 7/6/2022 9:42:51 AM If the bidder lists all items required for installation, termination, and connectivity of the FO cable within their price per linear foot, then the IDF count is redundant. If the bidder wishes to identify connectivity equipment based on the number of wiring closets, then the 10,305 number is applicable. 7/8/2022 12:34:34 PM No information is provided for the number of strands of fiber to be installed. How many strands of fiber are required? 7/6/2022 9:43:03 AM 12 strand fiber 7/8/2022 12:35:37 PM Please provide details of the type of LIU being requested. There are many options for an LIU in a wide variety of prices. Does the District have a design standard that contractors should adhere to? i.e plexiglass front, lockable front, metal front, no door? 7/6/2022 9:43:15 AM LIU should be yellow LC terminations, single RU (MDF will require larger), plexiglass front, lockable not necessary. District network cabling standards - Construction / Division27 (hillsboroughschools.org) 7/8/2022 12:36:34 PM Current industry standards dictate that fusion splicing (either connectors or pigtails) at the termination point provides the lowest reflection and loss, resulting in the highest throughput for data. The RFP does not indicate a termination method that all contractors should price. What is the required termination method? 7/6/2022 9:43:35 AM Fusion connections area acceptable. 7/8/2022 12:37:31 PM RFP requests that patch cables be provided. Can the District provide lengths that should be provided or a percentage of various lengths to include? 7/6/2022 9:43:48 AM Cable length should be kept at an absolute minimum. There isn’t a clear ratio due to the many different rack configurations throughout the district. Lengths should be 1ft, 3ft, 5ft. The lengths required past these lengths are minimal. 7/8/2022 12:38:27 PM Assuming a fiber path from MDF to IDF “B” must interconnect at IDF “A”; should contractor assume that a cross connect should happen at IDF “A” or should fiber be spliced at IDF “A” to provide continuity from IDF “B” and the MDF? 7/6/2022 9:44:15 AM Each remote IDF should have its own homerun to the MDF. We are trying to get away from IDFs that uplink through another IDF. If current IDFs have and uplink through another IDF, we want this fixed and to allow that each IDF have its own connection to MDF. 7/8/2022 12:39:21 PM Pricing for Fiber optic cabling is priced per foot. How is the district to determine footage installed? 7/6/2022 9:44:25 AM We will make an evaluation off of the supplied cable paths in permitting stage 7/8/2022 12:41:19 PM What testing requirements are expected from the District? I.e. OTDR, OTLS etc? Does the district have minimum testing requirements, acceptable loss values or reflection values for completed fiber installations? 7/6/2022 9:44:42 AM OTDR . Construction / Division27 (hillsboroughschools.org) 7/8/2022 12:42:17 PM Will the district require pictures of end faces of fiber optic connectors as a part of close out documentation package? 7/6/2022 9:44:52 AM Pictures of end faces are not required 7/8/2022 12:43:04 PM Is fusion splicing acceptable in the fiber optic cable link? 7/6/2022 9:45:04 AM Fusion spicing is acceptable withing the LIU. Each IDF should have its own uplink to MDF. 7/8/2022 12:44:02 PM Is tight buffer fiber optic cable acceptable in all environments? 7/6/2022 9:45:15 AM Tight buffer cables are acceptable for indoor use. Outdoor cable should be protected 7/8/2022 12:44:50 PM Is there a minimum labeling standard for the fiber optic cabling that the contractors shall adhere to? 7/6/2022 9:45:25 AM Not sure what is meant by minimum labeling standard, but fiber LIU terminals should be labeled accordingly to what room number the fiber is ran to. Construction / Division27 (hillsboroughschools.org) 7/8/2022 12:45:36 PM Is there a labeling standard required for the copper patch cables connecting the switches to the patch panel that the contractors shall adhere to? 7/6/2022 9:45:35 AM Yes. The room number of where the drop is installed to should be listed at patch panel. IDF room number, patch panel number, and jack number should be listed on the label at the end device. Construction / Division27 (hillsboroughschools.org) 7/8/2022 12:46:28 PM A contingency required of all contractors would provide insurance for pathways concerns and changes should they arise. This would help put the contractor pricing on an equal footing. Is the district willing to publish a contingency percentage requirement that all contractors should provide as a separate line item calculated as a percentage of total project pricing of 635,000 feet? 7/6/2022 9:45:46 AM Per E-Rate rules, the district must specify a total amount for the product for approval and correct invoicing. The district calculated the total footage based on previous projects and design of existing schools. The calculation is included in the worksheet. 8/3/2022 8:08:59 AM The district published drawings for the schools for this RFP. Are the schools that were published the only schools that the contractor should consider for this RFP? 7/6/2022 9:45:59 AM The schools that the contractor should consider are listed on the Erate 471. 7/8/2022 12:47:31 PM Is there a standard for horizontal wire managers that should be included? i.e. 1 RU horizontal manager above and below new LIU? 7/6/2022 9:46:09 AM If space permits and it is necessary to route and protect cables, a 1RU wire manager should be provided. 7/8/2022 12:48:26 PM Is the contractor to provide 15, 20 or 25 year manufacturer warranty? 7/6/2022 9:46:17 AM A 20 year warranty should be provided at the minimum. 7/8/2022 12:49:06 PM Should the fiber optic patch cords match fiber manufacturer to provide for warranty? 7/6/2022 9:46:26 AM If the manufacturer requires their patch cable for warranty, then that is what should be done. Outside of the warranty there is no requirement for patch cord to match cable manufacturer. 7/8/2022 12:49:49 PM Please clarify if the Buy American Act is applicable to the project? 7/6/2022 9:46:36 AM No Federal funding – no buy American clause. 7/14/2022 2:55:05 PM Please clarify that the awarded vendor must possess a Florida Electrical license. Also, that using a subcontractor license is not appropriate for an award. 7/6/2022 9:51:59 AM The winning vendor must possess a current Florida State electrical contractor’s license. 7/8/2022 12:50:32 PM Is the intention of the aggregation switches to be used as MDF Switches at each campus? 7/6/2022 2:56:23 PM Yes. 7/8/2022 12:51:24 PM Do the aggregation switches require 2 SFPs at the Aggregation Switch itself or do you require an additional 2 for a “Core Connection” in order to allow the full 20Gbps port channel from the aggregation switch? 7/6/2022 2:56:48 PM The aggregation switch will have to account for (2) 10gb (20gb total) connections coming from each IDF. This number will vary depending on the IDF count. 7/8/2022 12:51:59 PM Do the aggregation switches require 2 SFPs at the Aggregation Switch itself or do you require an additional 2 for a “Core Connection” in order to allow the full 20Gbps port channel from the aggregation switch? 7/6/2022 2:56:49 PM The aggregation switch will have to account for (2) 10gb (20gb total) connections coming from each IDF. This number will vary depending on the IDF count. 7/8/2022 12:52:30 PM Will each of the IDF Switches connect to the aggregation switches defined in this scope? a. If so, will the SFPs required to be plugged in on the aggregation side be provided by the district or should they be accounted for in this response? b. If they are required in this response, should each IDF have 4 SFPs included in the price or should the SFP Cost be split between the IDF and the Aggregation Switches? 7/6/2022 2:57:28 PM Each IDF will uplink to the MDF at 20gb. Whether there is one switch or 8 switches (in a stack), each IDF will uplink to aggregation switch at 20gb ((2) 10gb connections). Not each switch. Each IDF. There should be (2) 10gb transceivers installed in IDF & (2) 10gb transceivers installed in the aggregation switch MDF, for that appropriate IDF. SFPs will be required to be installed and functioning before site completion. SFPs are to be installed and supplied and accounted for in this response Either way. As long as each IDF uplinks to the MDF aggregation switch at 20gb. For each IDF uplink (4) total 10gb transceivers will be required – (2) at the IDF & (2) at the MDF. 7/8/2022 12:53:08 PM Are there specific switches that require OSPF vs BGP? 7/6/2022 2:57:58 PM Some switch manufacturers have OSPF already included in different models and some switch manufacturers require some type of license. That depends on the brand included in the response. 7/8/2022 12:54:40 PM Do all switches require dynamic routing or just the Aggregation Switches? 7/6/2022 2:58:30 PM Dynamic routing is required on the aggregation switches. 7/8/2022 12:55:54 PM What is the routing table size to be supported by OSPF/BGP? 7/6/2022 2:58:57 PM No less than 64k. 8/3/2022 3:12:55 PM For deployment, will the district be providing configuration templates for these switches to meet the standards in place for configuration management in use by the district? 7/6/2022 2:59:32 PM Yes, the district will be working closely with the awardee to come up with a standard config that will be used during project. 7/8/2022 12:56:48 PM Will the district be participating in any aspect of the switch deployment either by configuration, or physical installation? 7/6/2022 3:00:01 PM No. Awardee should complete all work. 7/8/2022 12:57:35 PM Can the Price for the SFPs be called out on their own line for price calculation since each switch in a multi-switch stack does not require independent 10G uplinks? (For example, a 3 switch stack would only require 2 uplinks). 7/6/2022 3:00:30 PM Yes. 7/8/2022 12:58:13 PM The Following School As-Builts either do not have a clear indication of IDFs/MDFs or are not valid documents. Specifically, “Oak Grove 1.pdf” contains only a Fiber report which appears to consist of only one pull. Can the district please validate the IDF counts for the locations identified on the following As-Builts and/or provide more clear documentation for these specific locations?

The price per closet price is the cost of what is needed to install a new fiber in an existing rack – LIU, manager, termination, jumpers, etc. Whatever is needed for a complete fiber network installation. 7/8/2022 1:01:32 PM In Attachment A, in cell I20 there is a formula that shows HCPS is multiplying the "Price per closet (materials):" by 10,305. Does that mean there are 10,305 closets in total? 7/6/2022 4:14:50 PM If the bidder lists all items required for installation, termination, and connectivity of the FO cable within their price per linear foot, then the IDF count is redundant. If the bidder wishes to identify connectivity equipment based on the number of wiring closets, then the 10,305 number is applicable. 7/8/2022 1:02:20 PM What is the MDF/IDF closet count requiring SFP uplinks so we can ensure HCPS is only purchasing the optics it needs and not unintentionally over purchasing? 7/6/2022 4:15:41 PM Each IDF will uplink to the MDF at 20gb. Whether there is one switch or 8 switches (in a stack), each IDF will uplink to aggregation switch at 20gb ((2) 10gb connections). Not each switch. Each IDF. There should be (2) 10gb transceivers installed in IDF & (2) 10gb transceivers installed in the aggregation switch MDF, for that appropriate IDF. 7/8/2022 1:03:06 PM Is MIBS required as part of the response or optional? 7/6/2022 4:16:59 PM MIBS is required in the response. 7/8/2022 1:04:09 PM Is BGP a requirement? If BGP is a requirement, is it required for both core and access switches? If it is required for access switches, what is the use case for BGP? 7/6/2022 4:17:10 PM BGP is required for the core aggregation switches 7/8/2022 1:04:55 PM Are Bid Bonds required with proposal submission? 7/6/2022 4:17:31 PM A bond is necessary for the full amount of a project when the vendor is holding more than $250,000 at a time. 7/14/2022 2:58:33 PM Per, pg 11,is a Performance Security required under this RFP? 7/6/2022 4:17:41 PM A bond is necessary for the full amount of a project when the vendor is holding more than $250,000 at a time. 8/3/2022 3:14:47 PM In section 4.3 Minimum Qualifications, you list: To receive a fair evaluation, the Proposer must: •be currently licensed, see http://www.myfloridalicense.com/DBPR/electrical-contractors . Can this license be held by the Prime Contractors Subcontractor that will be implementing the cabling? 7/6/2022 4:21:10 PM Licensure may not be held by a sub-contractor. The primary must hold the license. 7/8/2022 1:06:34 PM Section 6.1.1 specifies equipment meeting or exceeding “Brand Name Specifications” will be given equal consideration but also states that any substitution must be approved by HCPS in advance. Does this imply approval in advance of the submission or after the bid has been awarded? 7/7/2022 10:44:48 AM Approval will be made within the selection process. 7/18/2022 2:31:58 PM For the MIBS piece, are you looking for people onsite? 7/7/2022 12:05:27 PM Yes, for MIBS, having one or two people on site at the district technology operations center will ensure better cohesiveness. 7/18/2022 2:33:08 PM • What management tools are you using and please describe what functionality the switches must support. 7/8/2022 1:33:16 PM The district currently uses Orion Solar Winds for full integration, along with a couple of other tools that rely on SNMP or ping. 7/18/2022 2:34:10 PM • Are you using any Cisco proprietary protocols such as CDP, VTP, EIGRP, etc. and do the proposed switches need to support this? 7/8/2022 1:33:34 PM We are using these protocols but none of them apply to this RFP. These protocols are not relied upon within the LAN of each school. 7/18/2022 2:35:02 PM • Are you using Cisco VoIP Emergency Responder, and do you need the proposed switches to support E911 location services using methods other than IP Subnets? 7/8/2022 1:33:45 PM We are not using Cisco VOIP Emergency Responder. Right now there are no plans for implementing this service. 7/18/2022 2:35:46 PM The cost calculation tool included in the RFP has (2) pricing entries per line item – a switch cost and extended cost. Is the intent to capture the labor to commission and install the switch in the extension cost with a QTY of 1 for each item? 7/8/2022 1:35:05 PM The extended cost should cover any labor, optics connectivity, or labor for installing the switch. Qty of (1) for each item. 7/18/2022 2:36:34 PM Since the district is allowing the price for SFPs to be called out on their own line for pricing, will the district also be providing a new Excel pricing workbook with that line item called out from the other switch hardware in a specific quantity for consistent pricing to occur? 7/11/2022 9:50:35 AM SFP and SPF related costs should be called out on the line item for closet materials. 7/18/2022 2:37:25 PM Could you please clarify your intentions in placing product orders for switches and UPSs with this statement in your RFP? HCPS may generate Individual purchases via blanket or multiple POs against the contract as item(s) are required. Do you intend to order in bulk all 10,000 switches and 1000 UPSs in your shared spreadsheet or by individual school or something else? 7/12/2022 3:42:49 PM The district will work with the winning bidder to determine the cadence by which schools are upgraded. Meaning that the product required for schools will be planned ahead of time for each location. The district does not foresee ordering all equipment in one bulk order. 7/18/2022 2:38:09 PM The solicitation states that the UPS should be: Minimum of 1500VA, with an Input of 120V, and UPS devices must be network-attached for monitoring and management. The voltage and network attached requirements are set firm requirements, however the minimum 1500VA leaves room for interpretation of the actual unit size needed to support the network stack. Can you please confirm the wattage load per UPS that we should use for calculations of the UPS size? A 1500VA minimum will support a single network switch just fine, but it may not support a stack of 3,4,5,7 network switches which makes sizing the right UPS challenging. To ensure consistent sizing of the UPS can you please provide a wattage load and required holdover time so that UPS`s are sized to meet the same requirement? 7/12/2022 5:12:06 PM Wattage load should be 1000 watts with a full load hold over time of 5 minutes. 7/18/2022 2:39:08 PM As a managed solution could you explain the requirement for BGP? Would an option for OSPF or other routing protocol be allowable to redistribute into BGP at the WAN Edge where BGP might exist beyond the WAN? 7/13/2022 10:12:22 AM Yes. Equipment that is bid must support BGP & OSPF. Details and implementation will be worked out after the bid is awarded. 7/18/2022 2:39:51 PM If you choose a Meraki solution, would you plan to have the switches in the same Dashboard as your wireless access points? The question would be around the need to unify your overall network management. If you do separate them, do you expect to have access to the switching Dashboard or would that be done by your management provider? 7/13/2022 10:12:47 AM We would want Meraki switches to be accessed through the same dashboard of wireless access points. 7/18/2022 2:40:37 PM If an access switch is part of a stack of 4 switches, but isn’t one of the two switches that connect back to the Core Aggregation, does it still require 4x10Gb interfaces since two 10Gb interfaces are already being used for the uplink to the core aggregation via two other switches within the stack of 4? 7/15/2022 11:41:31 AM Yes. Looking for switch uniformity. 8/3/2022 8:19:45 AM Is the Core Aggregation switch running BGP, both the aggregation switch for all access switches and in turn, the one connecting to the HCPS WAN for ingress/egress traffic for each location? 7/15/2022 11:41:42 AM The core fiber aggregation switch for each site LAN should be capable of running BGP. 8/3/2022 8:26:56 AM Under Section 5.3.4 you state the following: "Installation of each switch in its final location (district sites) including connection to existing cabling as well as cable installed as part of this proposal." Are we to assuming we are reusing all existing copper patch cables? 7/17/2022 10:01:49 PM Yes. Reuse existing copper patch cables. 8/3/2022 8:28:52 AM Under Section 5.3.4 states the following: "Components as required to provide connectivity and functionality of the switch within the district environment (power cables, SFP modules, fiber patch cords, mounting brackets, etc.)" But under the fiber section, "Cost, per linear foot, of installed fiber-optic cabling to include:" b. Patch cords and other accessories as required for installation and connectivity Where do you want the fiber patch cables to be included? 7/17/2022 10:03:05 PM This should be listed on the pricing sheet under closet materials. 8/3/2022 8:29:42 AM • How much backup run-time are they looking for? 7/17/2022 10:30:27 PM 5 minutes. 8/3/2022 8:32:13 AM • Interested in expandable battery capability 7/17/2022 10:30:41 PM This would be a nice option or add on, but not a requirement. 8/3/2022 8:54:04 AM • Prefer network card integrated or optional to add? ( my assumption is external per erate) 7/17/2022 10:30:59 PM A network card will be included with the UPS. UPS NIC will be installed and configured for a completed job. 8/3/2022 8:57:35 AM Please clarify the need and responsibility for onsite resource and/or response post implementation. Will onsite resources be required for the purposed of remote monitoring and management (RMM) activities? If not, is onsite response support only required when remote services are not sufficient to resolve an incident or request? 7/18/2022 10:08:28 AM Onsite resources will be included in the MIBS piece to include someone located at our TOC office for coordination of daily activities. Also, an onsite response to a school, where remote services are not sufficient to resolve an incident, would be needed to remedy the incident. 8/3/2022 8:58:54 AM For onsite response, do you have established response time SLA’s; and if so what are they? 7/18/2022 10:09:45 AM Response time SLA is 4 hours. 8/3/2022 9:13:35 AM Can you confirm run time required and average power drawn from the connected equipment for the UPS`s? 7/18/2022 12:05:52 PM Wattage load should be 1000 watts with a full load hold over time of 5 minutes. 8/3/2022 9:32:37 AM Per pg 19, Section 2.4.1 - Evaluation criteria states - whether the information provided is in the required sequence. What is the required sequence? 7/18/2022 1:19:20 PM This would be the required documents that need to be submitted along with the response – this is everything listed in section 3. 8/3/2022 9:33:32 AM In the interest of uniformity, would the district consider publishing as an Addendum the District network cabling standards found in - Construction / Division27 (hillsboroughschools.org) as the standard that all bidders must adhere to for fiber optic cabling. In this way all proposals could be evaluated on equitable and impartial level while providing the district with confidence that District standards are being adhered to. 7/18/2022 5:31:30 PM Standards will be adhered to during the installation. 8/3/2022 9:34:38 AM How long do you anticipate project deployment to take? Does the vendor have autonomy to coordinate resources and location deployments? 7/18/2022 5:34:57 PM The project would be funded under current contract Cat 2 dollars for 3 years, at which time, the next funding cycle takes over. Initial response is up to 3 years. 8/3/2022 9:36:17 AM What is your current process for evaluating and approving ERate invoices? 7/18/2022 5:35:22 PM After work is complete and inspected by the district, invoices will be approved for payment. 8/3/2022 9:37:13 AM Since the reference section changed from 3.3 in the previous version of the bid to 3.4 in the current version, is it acceptable to utilize the references previously signed by customers and submitted as is within the new section? 7/19/2022 8:55:59 AM Yes. 8/3/2022 9:40:11 AM What is the annual average service ticket volume (2019-2021) for the 10k switches that are requested to be managed under this service agreement? Can you also please provide the monthly breakdowns? 7/19/2022 10:53:59 AM The average service ticket volume for switching equipment is roughly 100 tickets per month during school year months – August through May. This is on aging equipment. 8/3/2022 9:41:20 AM Per previous Q&A, if you are only looking for 1-2 people onsite for the MIBS portion, will you be utilizing your own personnel for some of the remediations in schools? 7/19/2022 10:54:17 AM The MIBS is to manage the newly installed switches and take care of remediations. The 1-2 people question was related to onsite people at our TOC operations building. 8/3/2022 9:57:37 AM Could you please clarify the requirement for an Electrical Contractor on the bid. Would only a valid EC Florida license be eligible to bid on the project or would a Specialty Electrical license (ES) also be allowed to bid as the primary. Definition of each: Certified Electrician (EC): Certified contractors are able to work anywhere in Florida. Certified Electrical Specialty Contractor (ES): Specialty Contractors, as the name implies, specialize in a specific aspect of the field, such as alarm installation and maintenance. 7/19/2022 11:02:03 AM Limited energy systems specialist (low voltage) is allowed 8/3/2022 9:58:39 AM Are there existing UPS units to be de-installed? If so, what are their specifications? Will we turnover to the district to dispose of them? 7/19/2022 11:25:39 AM There are existing UPS’ - maybe not in every rack, but in the larger majority. The most common UPS is a 1500va Easton or a 1500 Orion. The district will need to dispose of this equipment since some if these units are tied to an asset tracking system. 8/3/2022 9:59:34 AM For clarity of license requirements for this RFP please confirm that a license issued by the Electrical Contractor Board from the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, specifically a Limited Energy Systems license(ES) is acceptable for award. 7/19/2022 11:26:45 AM Limited energy systems specialist (low voltage) is allowed. 8/3/2022 10:00:17 AM Contract Dates Total: 0 Awarded CompanyTerm TypeContract NumberApproval DateStart DateEnd DateSubstantial Completion DateStatusAmountComment Pre-Award Documents Total: 0 CategoryNameFile Type Contract Documents Total: 0 CompanyAwardee TypeCategoryNameFile Type Bidders Total: 9 CompanyEmailPhoneFaxADB Companies, LLCcreeves@adb-us.com (636) 234-6503 Advanced Cable Connection, Inc.estimating@accicable.com (813) 978-0101 (813) 972-3038 Education Networks of America, Inc.bids@ena.com (615) 312-6000 Howard Industriesbids@howardcomputers.com (601) 425-3181 (601) 399-5077 MCS of Tampaccollins@mcsoftampa.com (770) 815-3632 Netsync Network SolutionsCTaber@netsync.com (630) 730-9946 (713) 664-9964 Sentinel Technologiespwiercioch@sentinel.com (630) 769-4274 STEP CG, LLCalopez@stepcg.com (216) 556-1515 UNITED DATA TECHNOLOGIESMARIANA.LUGARO@UDTONLINE.COM (800) 882-9919 (305) 882-0436 Awardees Total: 0 CompanyEmailPhoneFax Insurance Total: 0 CompanyTypeStart DateEnd Date Bond Total: 0 CompanyTypeStart DateEnd Date
