Q: I see that there are closet locations marked on all of the floorplans except East Haven High School. Can I get a closet count and location?

A: The floorplans for the High School have been updated. Click here to view/download the file.

Q: Regarding the optional PoE switching, is Cisco the only brand acceptable?

posted Apr 13, 2015, 11:49 AM by Randel Osborne   [ updated Apr 13, 2015, 11:50 AM ]

A: Yes.  We have standardized on Cisco for all networking hardware throughout the district.

Q: Also for the servers, should I be setting storage to aim for 30 days based on motion?

posted Apr 13, 2015, 11:48 AM by Randel Osborne

A:  Although the base bid specifies 2TB of storage, you may, as an addendum, quote additional storage, and 30 day retention is an appropriate goal.

Q: Does the school system have the bandwidth between each school to build a camera network and have everything come back to one school/it room for recording?

posted Apr 13, 2015, 11:45 AM by Randel Osborne

A: Yes.  Each school is connected with 1GB private fiber, and the Middle School/Academy is connected with 10GB private fiber

The High School map on the RFP shows the camera locations, however, didn't show where the MDF or the IDF's are located.  This updated map will show where they are.

Q: When is the expected bid award, as work seems to need to be completed on a very short timetable?

posted Apr 7, 2015, 9:03 AM by Randel Osborne

A: We hope to award the bid the week of April 20.

Q: Are there any specifications on camera brands, types, resolution, etc?

posted Apr 7, 2015, 9:00 AM by Randel Osborne

A: We are allowing vendors to specify cameras that will be part of their overall solution. These cameras must include housings that are appropriate to their location and function.

Q: Please clarify night vision?

posted Apr 7, 2015, 8:53 AM by Randel Osborne

A: IR cameras that display a monochrome signal, with the goal of capturing suspicious activity after hours.
