Living In The Networked World


Wired or wireless, with the proliferation of the Internet, mobile phones,
communication devices, and wireless networks we are rapidly moving
from a world of simple voice communication and isolated desktop
computing to an interconnected world of networked communities and
anytime/anywhere connectedness where everyone and everything is
connected. The Network will operate everywhere, connecting people
and devices seamlessly.
(Living in a Networked World Report-Computer Systems Policy Project)




                         Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Purpose Of The Summit

  Like water and roads, advanced telecommunications and
   broadband Internet services are critical infrastructure for
   Arizona communities
  Many rural and other underserved communities lack the
   infrastructure to support deployment of these services
  The purpose of the Summit is to accelerate deployment of
   these services to all Arizona communities
  The plan is to explore options and leave the Summit with
   consensus on policies and implementation plans to remove
   barriers to the deployment of this critical infrastructure.

    Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Critical Infrastructure
In our Networked World affordable broadband Internet and advanced
telecommunications services are critical infrastructure to support:
  • Community development
  • Critical services such as police and fire
  • Telemedicine and health care institutions
  • eLearning for P-20 through life long learning
  • eGovernment for improved citizen services
  • Economic development including growing existing businesses and
    starting or attracting new businesses
     •   Estimated $8.5 Billion increase in GDP, $100 Million increase
         in revenue for State government, 11,500 new (mostly hi-tech)
         jobs*


                         Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
What is Broadband


  The FCC defines broadband as an Internet connection at a
   speed of 200 kilobits per second (kbps) in either direction
   (basic services).
  In the Networked World this basic broadband service is no
   longer adequate to support services such as eCommerce,
   eHealth, eGovernment, and eLearning
  ATIC and CIAC have recommended advanced broadband
   services providing a minimum of 1 Mbps




                      Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Status of Broadband In Arizona

 Greater metropolitan areas have an increasing number of
  affordable basic (200 Kb) and advanced (1 Mbps +) broadband
  options
 Many smaller and rural communities are under-served or have no
  broadband access. The majority of rural communities now have
  access to basic broadband last-mile services such as cable
  modem, DSL, or wireless. Of Arizona’s 225 communities of 500
  population or more, 40 have no Broadband availability.
 Many rural communities still lack consistent coverage of basic
  broadband services and they do not have the infrastructure to
  support advanced (1mps+) broadband deployment.




                       Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Status of Broadband In Arizona

 As of 2006 20% of rural districts have schools with only Dial-up (56k)
   connection to the Internet
 Of the rural communities that have services, many still face middle
   and last-mile deficits, experiencing much higher service costs,
   making it unaffordable to end users. In many where Broadband is
   available, the rates are 2 - 3 times more expensive than rates in
   Phoenix or Tucson.
 An estimated 50% of Arizona citizens in rural communities and a half
   million in urban communities (totaling about 20% of the State’s
   population) do not have access to advanced broadband connections
 Many rural communities also lack redundancy in order to maintain
   connectivity in the event of network failure


                         Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Barriers and Strategies



  ATIC and CIAC have identified barriers to deployment of
   advanced telecommunications services and broadband Internet
   access to rural and under-served communities
  ATIC and CIAC adopted ten strategy and policy
   recommendations to overcome these barriers.




                       Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Goals

  Accelerate deployment of advanced telecommunications
    services and affordable broadband Internet access
    throughout the State.
  Develop voice, video and data applications that ride over the
    infrastructure that will link the Arizona community and support
    education, economic and community development.
  Develop strategies to Bridge the Digital Divide

  Support tribes and local communities in development and
    implementation of technology infrastructure strategies and
    initiatives.




                      Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Strategy


   The strategy is to remove barriers and develop public
    policies and market-driven strategies that will encourage
    competition, private-sector investment in, and rapid
    deployment of telecom services
   Where no market-driven solution can be found, we need to
    identify ways in which communities and the State can “fill-in”
    the gaps.




                      Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Infrastructure Development Deficits



  Middle Mile

  Interoperability

  Redundancy




                      Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Middle Mile


 ATIC and CIAC have been focusing on deployment of redundant
  middle mile services
 Two primary telecom services Last Mile and Middle Mile

     Last Mile is the connection between the ISP and end user -
      businesses, homes, schools, etc.
     The Middle Mile is the connections between local communities
      and the Internet backbone in the metropolitan areas such as
      Phoenix and Tucson.




                         Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Middle Mile



  If a common middle mile infrastructure is not available, at
    reasonable rates:
       Communities may not be served
       Communities or last mile providers must construct their own
       Last mile costs and end users rates will be higher




                         Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Barriers to Broadband Deployment




     Lack of Focus, Planning and Coordination

     Return on Investment

     Access to Rights-of-Way

     Funding




                   Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Barriers To Middle Mile Deployment

 Return on Investment: Requires a balance between deployment
   costs, affordable end user rates, and the length of time for the
   provider’s ROI (18 - 24 months)
 Access to Rights-of-Way: Federal, tribal, state and local Rights-
   of-Way issues such as multiple jurisdiction permitting, delayed
   application approvals, and unequal and prohibitive fees
 Planning and Coordination: There is no coordinated statewide
   strategy
      We are not leveraging existing investments
      Losing out on millions of federal dollars



                        Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Recommendations
 Establish a Telecommunications Infrastructure Advisory
  Committee under the Governor’s Council on Innovation and
  Technology
 Develop a Broadband Development Authority

     Provide Focus, Planning and Coordination
     Develop dedicated funding mechanisms and strategies such
      as an Arizona Broadband Universal Service Fund
 Provide support for the development of a Statewide Telecom
  Strategic Plan that will enable the vision, framework and
  strategies for the deployment of a statewide telecom
  infrastructure.




                       Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Recommendations

  Convene a series of regional and statewide Telecom
    Roundtables
  Provide state support to identify potential funding sources and
    provide grant writing assistance to help fund state and local
    telecom infrastructure projects
  Implement a strategy to facilitate increased use of the federal
    E-rate subsidies in the state
  Provide ongoing funding for Community Telecommunications
    Assessments and Plans to identify community telecom
    assets, assess their needs, and develop and implement
    telecom infrastructure strategies and initiatives



                       Arizona Telecommunications and Information Council
Recommendations


  Adopt an Arizona definition of Broadband to be a minimum of
    1Mbps
  Encourage access to local, state, federal and tribal rights-of-
    way
  Monitor legislative actions to ensure that explicit or de facto
    barriers to municipal participation in Broadband deployment
    are eliminated.
