DeiC to procure optical transmission equipment
DeiC expects to spend between DKK 18 million and 30 million on optical transmission equipment for Forskningsnettet, the Danish National Research and Education Network.
DeiC has issued a request for tender via TED (Tenders Electronic Daily). The process has three steps:
First, a number of potential vendors are selected. DeiC expects to select between five and eight vendors.
Next, the vendors submit their proposals. Finally, DeiC selects a vendor.
The purpose is to expand network bandwidth. Currently, the fastest connections in Forskningsnettet have a bandwidth of 10 Gbit/s. They will be upgraded to 100 Gbit/s.
The request for tender only covers optical transmission equipment. Routers and other types of network equipment are not included.
Interested vendors must submit a tender or request to participate by January 14, 2016.
