ATTACHMENT A
TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
One (1) Blue Coat PacketShaper 10000 traffic management system capable of managing 1 Gbps of traffic. Installation
and configuration would be performed by staff at the University of Superior. Additionally, one year of 24x7 software and
hardware support is required.
If an equivalent item is being offered, the cost of installation, configuration, training or any other costs necessary for
implementation should be included on Attachment B, Itemized Cost Sheet. The University of Superior’s IT staff does not
have the necessary experience and knowledge of other systems to perform the installation and configuration
themselves.
Additionally, it is the University’s preference that bidders accept trade-in allowance of the current system, a
PacketShaper 6500. If a trade in is offered and accepted, the winning bidder would take possession of the
PacketShaper 6500 after the new traffic management system has been received and installed, and would be
responsible for any costs associated with transfer of ownership.
