    inside buildings in order for faculty to take advantage of the
    Internet2 capabilities in the support of research.
•   Part 3 - Provide network reliability and continuous information flow
    for data intensive services, such as video and collaborative
    computing. As more university services become web-based,
    provide network access to those Ohio State University employees
