Lot Division

1 Arista Equipment or Equivalent

JSL wishes to establish a multi-supplier framework agreement to supply, install, support and maintain network equipment from a number of different manufacturers. The framework agreement will be for the supply and support of a broad range of wired and Wi-Fi network equipment including devices with firewall capabilities, low-end customer premises equipment (CPE), mid-range enterprise, and high-end carrier-class type equipment supporting up to 100 Gigabit Ethernet and above. It also covers converged network adapters, interface modules, transceivers, access points, VoIP products, etc; and associated ancillary goods and services including, but not limited to software, cabling and installation. The scope of the framework covers purchases by JSL, Jisc and its members. It also covers purchases by higher education institutions, further education and specialist colleges and research Council establishments in the UK, and by any other organisations connected to the Janet network, including local authorities, regional broadband consortia, or other bodies whose core purpose is the support or advancement of further or higher education or of research. Many of the above organisations are members of higher and further education purchasing consortia. These consortia are independent organisations that provide a wide range of collaborative purchase agreements to their member institutions. Any member of one of these consortia will be eligible to purchase from this framework by virtue of its membership, as will members of any other similar purchasing consortium in higher or further education that might be formed during the lifetime of the framework. Membership lists for existing higher and further education purchasing consortia may be found at: https://www.lupc.ac.uk/member-list https://www.supc.ac.uk/about-us/our-members/our-members http://www.nwupc.ac.uk/our-members http://www.neupc.ac.uk/our-members http://www.hepcw.ac.uk/members/ http://www.apuc-scot.ac.uk/#!/members
