Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit Prepared by Jim Bates, Director ETS; PMP, CISSP 15 July 2014 Current State
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit Local, State and Federal cooperatives Dept. Of EducationUniversity of Alaska Distance Education Public Access Computers 17 campuses serving over 20,000 students TeleHealth Primarily rural Hospitals and health care providers Over 200 participants Alaska Psychiatric Institute Online with Libraries (OWL) approx. 100 libraries Municipal or borough School Access programs approx. 120 schools
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit Executive Branch Demographics ETS serves over 22,000 State and partner agency employees in 70 of the 355 communities (US census) located across Alaska. Organizationally, ETS provides computing and telecommunications services in support of the business of executive branch state agencies serving Alaskans. The Legislative and Judicial branches of State Government as well as commissions, corporations, councils and the university may elect to share in our services. Although broadband opportunities in rural spaces are a small part of what ETS does, these reflect over 63% of our connectivity investment.
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit ETS Services… Enterprise E-mail 12 systems into 1 Improved business Reduces costs Effective calendaring CyberSecurity Reduced risk Improved awareness Statewide policies Data Centers JNU-ANC-FAI Private Cloud Reduces costs
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit ETS Services, continued… Core Phones JNU-ANC-FAI Some Palmer, Ketchikan Reduces costs SATS/ALMR 2-way radios 80% of population along road system First Responders’ Use Microwave Backbone
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit JNU-ANC-FAI -- 80% of SOA employees in 180 bldgs. Kenai Peninsula & Kodiak – 5% in 52 bldgs. Palmer / Wasilla – 5% in 31 bldgs. * Road systems (rural) – 5% in 32 communities * Satellite (rural) locations – 5% in 35 communities ETS Services: Wide Area Network (Private WAN)
1.Bandwidth is a measurement of how much data can be transferred at a time, while speed is a measurement of how fast things are done. 2.Bandwidth and speed can be synonymous when measuring how fast you can download a file. 3.Bandwidth may not directly translate to speed in real time applications. 4.Latency is delay - the amount of time it takes a packet to travel from source to destination. Together, latency and bandwidth define the speed and capacity of a network.
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit Definitions: "Broadband" - refers to how wide the pipe is, not how fast
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit Bandwidth: Speed or Capacity? How wide (broad) is the pipe?
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit 1.Where the internet meets a private network. 2.Where the business of citizens is transacted through secure State Government web applications such as a resident’s Permanent Fund Application registration. The DMZ:
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit New opportunities Improved VPN technologies New competition: Verizon and Quintillion New rural build-out of terrestrial infrastructure Decreasing broadband cost vs. high cost rural networking (63% of connectivity spend) High desire and expectation to deliver better service anywhere All combine to allow us to target broadband pilot projects for the State of Alaska, focused on the service- starved west and north regions of the state.
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit Pilots and testing Broadband pilots in Dutch Harbor, Dillingham, King Salmon and soon Nome. We are testing data, voice, wireless and directory services with Marine Highways at terminals (terrestrial) and soon on ships (satellite). Given new choices, we can provide the service needed by rural citizens following a reasonable cost model. This has only recently been made possible by the improvements that come with the effort to deliver public broadband infrastructure.
Statewide Broadband Task Force Summit Going forward Follow the lead of the work done by the broadband task force. Promote legislation to further develop infrastructure in Alaska. Follow a fiber cable deployment using right-of-way model successfully in use by states like Illinois and Texas. Find a way to leverage e-rate, telehealth and other government investments with partner providers.
