Contract award: framework network replacement and related services.

From the specifications 2013: The contract relates to the acquisition of new networking equipment, including switches, routers, firewalls and accessories. The purchase was made to support the infrastructure of DR in general and for media production and DR~s use of special AVID solutions for Nearline editing (NLE) in particular. DR has historically invested hundreds of millions of deploying a Cisco-based infrastructure to support this need.

Developments in media production make complex demands on network capacity, performance and functionality. These requirements entail upgrading and replacement of selected parts of the DR~s existing active network components.

The new network must be technically compatible with DR~s other networked Cisco-based network components. Accessories, including replacement parts, extensions, licenses and the like should be able to be used in DR~s existing Cisco-based networks. The equipment must also support existing communication services and supplies shall include extensions of DR~s existing Cisco management tools to include the new equipment. Detailed descriptions of the customer~s IT environment and any minimum requirements for compatibility at the offered switches will be indicated in the tender documents.

DR offers a framework that supports DR~s initial major purchasing network and subsequent ongoing purchase of active network components, including switches, routers, firewalls, accessories and services.
