|USNH IBEAM Network|
The following chart illustrates the WAN team’s ability to deliver the continually increasing bandwidth required by the USNH institutions and our other customers. We have grown this service from under 500 Mbps in FY07 to over 40 Gbps this fiscal year.
Since 2014, the net cost to USNH to operate the network has decreased by over 10%. The additional revenue realized by providing high bandwidth service to our partner institutions enables the WAN team to stabilize the net cost to the USNH institutions.
The external revenue offsets 34% of the cost of operating the USNH Wide Area Network.
This year, UNH IT renegotiated the contracts with providers for bulk internet service and increased bandwidth by 6 Gbps while reducing the cost to the FY20 budget by $65,000.
