    WHY the ICN?
   Illinois is in the top 5 states for
    expenditures on higher education
   …But we rank in the middle of the
    pack (17th or 18th) for educational
   Educational Delivery – The
    Advanced Placement Lever (43%)
    WHY the ICN?
   Educational Delivery
   Economic Development
   Better Trained Workforce
   Support of Growing Illinois
    Technology Industry
   Educational Attainment Gains
What is the ICN?
A robust, statewide education
network to connect all Illinois
elementary, secondary, and higher
education institutions as well as
libraries and museums for the
purpose of delivering and receiving
educational content.
    So what’s the big deal?
   8,200 potential constituents
   LOTS of HOPS
   The Broadband Revolution
     Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

     Encyclopedia Britannica

     Harley Davidson
What are the design goals?
   Build upon existing state projects
   Avoid duplication of costly facilities and
   Recognize economies of scale to leverage
    state buying power
   Build at a large enough scale to interest
    partners/telecommunications providers
   Balance construction of the backbone
    network with current and anticipated user
Building on Existing Projects
   LincOn (K-12 network) (2000+)

   Illinois Video Education Network
    (Higher Education) (455)

   State Frame Relay Backbone & State Video
    Network (State Agencies) (200/100)

   Library System Networks (12)
What does the ICN look like?
   The ICN spans the entire state in a 2-3
    year build out period
   It is a high speed, high bandwidth
   It is an ATM solution capable of carrying
    voice, video, data, and image
What does the ICN cost?
   Fiscal year 2000 budget of $27 million
   Fiscal year 2000 budget of $27 million
   Plus Federal E-rate dollars totaling
    approximately $3 million per year
The Backbone Network
& Regional Technology
A Gathering of State Networks
   St. Louis, Missouri
   April 16-18
   22 states and Puerto Rico reported
   Many successes
   Many failures
Failed Efforts Resulted From…
   Lack of flexibility in procurement
    disallowing utilization of new
    technologies (cable, wireless)
   Lack of sufficient ties to the higher
    education research networks
   Lack of sufficient levels of support
Failed Efforts Resulted From…
   Insistence on one all purpose network
    resulting in ‘engineering by legislation’
   Building the network on a ‘cost
    reduction model’ which ultimately
    prohibited new infrastructure
Future Bandwidth Needs
   Based on the experience of other states
    bandwidth demand will grow exponentially
    beyond what institutions can ultimately afford
   A rule of thumb is that bandwidth demand
    doubles every 10-12 months
   H.320 interactive video is going to increase
    rather than decrease along with IP-based
    video (H.323) taking up increasing amounts
    of bandwidth
      Long Term Success:
   The speed of technology does not equal the
    speed of state government – we must act
    more quickly to provision bandwidth
   The ICN must align itself with higher
    education research efforts
   Public/private partnerships must be
    embraced to develop sufficient economy of
    scale for long term success
