NMEICT National Mission on Education Through Information and Communication Technology Agenda • Benefits of Campus LAN • Other Benefits • Survey Prerequisities • Sample Network – Existing – Proposed – Integrated Benefits Of Campus LAN Campus Computer networks help users on the network to share the resources and aid in communication. The following are the important benefits of a computer network. • File sharing: Networking of computers helps the users to share data files. • Hardware sharing: Users can share devices such as printers, scanners, CD-ROM drives, hard drives etc. • Application sharing: Applications can be shared over the network, and this allows to implement client/server applications • User communication: Networks allow users to communicate using e-mail, newsgroups, and video conferencing, VOIP calling, VVOIP (Voice and Video over IP network), Tele education, Campus surveillance etc. Benefits of Campus LAN …contd Total Y • Helps Universities to Increase Revenue • Helps attract best students • Helps the students to work, live, play and learn effectively • Helps Support and Enhance research efforts • Methods to Increase Productivity and Efficiency by Knowledge sharing Benefits Of Campus LAN….. contd • Simplicity : Providing campus users the ability to access the work application easily. Provide simpler architecture for managing infrastructure. • High performance : Maximizing bandwidth and allowing room for future applications • Reliability : Robust network infrastructure with focus on high reliability. • Risk Mitigation : Help mitigate potential risks Other Benefits • In order to provide unfettered access to existing educational institutions, they will be connected through MPLS VPN. • In this VPN, Premier Institutes and Universities to be connected via 1 GBPS access link • It also provides internet access to the institutes • University can have Campus Area LAN by spending only 25% of the total cost • 75% of the cost will born by MHRD NMEICT project • Under the NMEICT project , the State POP of National Knowledge Network shall be linked to Universities and colleges in a three tier architecture • Optical Fibre connectivity of 1 GBPS from NKN CORE POP to End User POP at Universities. Survey Pre-requisites 1/2 For successful site survey we require following details from the universities. 1. Existing network details What is the existing network design How many routers, L2/L3 switches are present How many firewalls or other security devices present How many buildings are connected in the network How many computers are connected in the network Is there any Internet/VPN connectivity other then NME 1 Gb connectivity Network Diagram of existing network with fiber cable layout Survey Pre-requisites 2/2 NME network requirement Choice of campus network topology With redundancy Without redundancy Combination of Both In which building the university would like to Host NME centralize equipment (Like Router + firewall, L3 Switch, UPS) Number of buildings to be connected Number of I/O’s per building Number of I/O’s per room University building diagram (blue print) Roles & Responsibility Matrix Role & Responsibility Activity BSNL BSNL SIS University (STP) (SSA/Circle) Coordination with University for NME Project Consent for LAN execution Providing the Details of existing network, current requirement and expansion plan Requirement study and site survey Submission of detailed requirement / site survey report to the university for confirmation and approval Approval of site survey report To Deposit margin money (25 % of Capex) by university to BSNL Issue of P.O. to SIS, for respective university Supply, Installation & commissioning of requisite hardware and establishing 1 Gbps Campus Network using Copper & Fibre at respective university. Security for supplied material at respective university User Acceptance Testing (UAT) clearance of campus Network Training on campus network Provide the Facility Management for Campus Network.(depute one onsite network engineer per university) Operation and Maintenance of Campus Network Establish common Help Desk and eMS system to support NMEICT Network Bill preparation for material supply and exclusion charges and forwarding to STP for release of payment SIS for Respective University Sample Existing Network Diagram of University in West Zone Sample Proposed Network Diagram of University in West Zone Sample Integrated Network Diagram of University in West Zone
