On July 27, 2011, 29 leading research universities (today there
are 37), working in partnership with their local communities,
announced the formation of Gig.U


Gig.U Mission

Gig.U
Purpose


Accelerate the deployment of world

leading, next generation networks in the
United States



Provide an opportunity to lead in the next
generation of ultra

high speed network
services and applications


The Gig.U approach v. the alternative


Sole supplier makes a limited product offering


Communities organize to attract supplier


Demand significantly greater than supply


Supplier has more power during negotiations

Gig.U Strategy

Gig.U believes,
given the pre
-
existing use by faculty, staff, students and
others in our communities, that we have the highest demand for
bandwidth of any set of communities in the United States and therefore
are the most logical place to test the demand for next generation speeds,
as well as being the most likely communities to develop the innovations
that will drive increased demand in other communities. Gig.U members
are willing to explore with potential providers techniques that could help
determine where in the community that demand is likely to be highest
and develop a deployment schedule that reflects that expressed demand.

Gig.U Tactical
Approach

Advancing world
-
leading networks: our tactical approach


Gig.U members are
open to working in collaboration with private sector
partners to develop deployment and service strategies that focus on specific
applications that may be of particular interest to partners.
For
example,
members may work in collaboration with a service provider and a health care provider
who agree to fund some portion of the network or commit to a contract for a set
amount of services to make sure that specific end
-
users or areas of the community
receive 1 Gbps service because doing so would help the health care provider evaluate
certain new technologies
.


Private
sector companies, in addition to public sector entities, would identify
additional use cases particular to their environments, as discussions and
dialogue concerning deployment progress.

September: Release Request for Information


September 26: RFI Meeting


Provide potential respondents an overview and opportunity to ask
question about the RFI


Face to face interactions and meetings between Gig.U members and
potential respondents


September


October: Follow Up Discussions


Gig.U staff to facilitate additional interactions between members and
vendors to encourage creative and useful responses


Gig.U members collaborate and exchange ideas with community
partners.


Initially November now extended to December 2, 2011: RFI
responses due


Gig.U process timeline


December 2, 2011: RFI responses due


The
RFI seeks to gather conceptual frameworks and indications of
interest from vendors interested in working with Gig.U members to
develop strategies to deploy self
-
sustaining, next generation
broadband networks that will provide affordable, high
-
speed services
to our communities.


All
else being equal, members will favor a strategy that offers
consumers and businesses more services; however members are not
seeking to procure a specific suite of products at this time. Rather,
they are seeking strategies to collaborate with vendors in mutually
beneficial ways that will promote their communities as hubs of
innovation with cutting edge networks and services available to local
residents and businesses
