Meeting Date: 03/22/2018  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a Renewal Agreement with ICTX Wavemedia for dark fiber services (C-2007-3693R); 
FISCAL IMPACT:
$39,960 annual fee for a five-year term.
BACKGROUND:
The Township has maintained a dark fiber network between all major Township facilities since 2008 with ICTX Wavemedia. The fiber network provides voice and data traffic between the following Township facilities.

The existing agreement with ICTX Wavemedia is:
Central Fire Station $550/month
Parks Administration $550/month
Bear Branch Recreation Center $550/month
Emergency Training Center $550/month
Internet Access at Townhall and Central Fire Station 100MB/s $1,750/month
The current total fee is $3,950/month

ICTX Wavemedia submitted the following 60-month renewal proposal (Attachment A):
Central Fire Station $595/month
Parks Administration $595/month
Bear Branch Recreation Center $595/month
Emergency Training Center $595/month
Internet Access 1GB/s $950/month
Total Proposed Fee $3,330/month

Staff also received a proposal from Consolidated Communications (Attachment B):
 
Central Fire Station (1GB maximum) $900/month
Parks Administration (1GB/s maximum) $1,250/month
Bear Branch Recreation Center (1GB/s maximum) $1,500/month
Emergency Training Center (1GB/s maximum) $1,250/month
Total Proposed Fee $4,900/month
   

Consolidated would provide a maximum bandwidth per location of 1 GB/s. 
AT&T declined to submit a proposal due to territory limitations.

The ICTX  renewal reflects a net savings of $37,200 over the five-year term which includes the increased Internet Access from 100 MB/s to 1GB/s. This increases the internet bandwidth by a factor of 10.
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize the President/General Manager to execute the renewal agreement with ICTX Wavemedia, subject to approval in final form by the Township Attorney
