2 Need for critical mass of next generation test beds National Broadband Plan Demonstrated community ability and desire to organize to improve next generation business case Google Fiber Initiative Need for seamless experience between campus and community Place where innovation happens History of Universities and Internet Lead to … Background for Gig.U

3 The University-Community Next Generation Innovation Project Over the spring and summer of 2011, 37 leading research universities, working in partnership with their local communities, formed Gig.U Our Mission Our 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

4 Advancing world-leading networks: our strategy Identify and utilize strategic target markets Develop test-beds for next-gen network deployments and app development Our Strategy

5 University-communities: a strategic market opportunity Advantages of University-communities Demand for Bandwidth = Greatest Cost of Deployment = Least Positive Impact of Network Access = Greatest

6 Gig.U Member Institutions For new test-beds to foster experimentation and innovation, it makes sense to work with communities that have strong traditions of experimentation and innovation Georgia Tech

7 Advancing world-leading networks: our tactical approach Identify and utilize strategic target markets Develop test-beds for next-gen network deployments and app development Our Strategy Use collective action to attract private capital – Aggregate demand – Lower transaction costs Use competitive forces to reveal trade-offs Our Tactical Approach

8 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 Demand SideSupply Side Google Community The Alternative Approach One Supplier  One Solution

9 Supply Side Demand Side Project Members Telco(s)Cableco(s)GoogleNew Entrant(s) The Gig.U approach v. the alternative Collective action by project members incentivizes private sector Multiple suppliers organize to meet market demand New market dynamic: multiple suppliers, multiple consumers with shared goals – More equal negotiating power Many Suppliers  Many Solutions Gig.U Approach: Reverses the Alternative Approach and Expands the Opportunity OEMs Other vendors App. DevelopersCDNs

10 Advancing world-leading networks: our process Identify and utilize strategic target markets Develop test-beds for next-gen network deployments and app development Our Strategy Use collective action to attract private capital – Aggregate demand – Lower transaction costs Use competitive forces to reveal trade-offs Our Tactical Approach Organize members and develop RFI Engage potential partners for creative responses to the RFI Evaluate responses to pave path forward Our Process

11 Gig.U process timeline July 27: Public launch September 15: 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 November: RFI responses due

12 Advancing world-leading networks: our opportunities Identify and utilize strategic target markets Develop test-beds for next-gen network deployments and app development Our Strategy Use collective action to attract private capital – Aggregate demand – Lower transaction costs Use competitive forces to reveal trade-offs Our Tactical Approach New approaches to health care, education, job training and other critical social needs Improved platform for research Improved platform for small business development Our Opportunities Organize members and develop RFI Engage potential partners for creative responses to the RFI Evaluate responses to pave path forward Our Process

13 The benefits of world-leading networks “Gr8 for Job Creation” Twitter 7/28/11 Economic growth, investment and job creation Improved platform for research Improved platform for small business development New ways to distribute the benefits of the information revolution to all parts of the country New approaches to health care, education, job training and other critical social needs

14 1800’s Access to abundant flowing water 1900’s Access to abundant electricity Access to abundant transportation 2000’s Access to abundant bandwidth Access to abundant human intellectual capital In 21 st Century economy, we can lower barriers to innovation by increasing bandwidth Economic clusters often require access to abundant input for success

15 The United States has not been advancing as fast as others “Home Internet May Get Even Faster in South Korea” By Mark McDonald, February 21, 2011 Other countries are moving toward Gigabit connectivity... “Cheap, Ultrafast Broadband? Hong Kong Has It” By Randall Stross, March 5, 2011 South Korea already claims the world’s fastest Internet connections — the fastest globally by far — but that is hardly good enough for the government here. By the end of 2012, South Korea intends to connect every home in the country to the Internet at one gigabit per second. That would be a tenfold increase from the already blazing national standard and more than 200 times as fast as the average household setup in the United States. Hong Kong residents can enjoy astoundingly fast broadband at an astoundingly low price. It became available last year, when a scrappy company called Hong Kong Broadband Network introduced a new option for its fiber-to-the- home service: a speed of 1,000 megabits a second--known as a “gig”-- for less than $26 a month. In the United States, we don’t have anything close to that. But we could. And we should.... but Gigabit connectivity is not advancing in the United States
