Maintenance Costs of a Self-Provisioned Network

In 2005, Upper Adams School District (UASD) deployed a 9+ mile self- provisioned fiber-optic network. This presentation will provide a nearly 15-year case study in the service and maintenance requirements of a self-provisioned network. Initial costs and savings will be explored in conjunction with budgeted maintenance costs compared to actual costs spent in the 15-year time frame. As future maintenance costs are often unpredictable, and often, a grave concern for those contemplating a self-provisioned network, this case study will provide real-world examples to identify those issues and discuss the cost effects that are associated with them
