UCOL seeks Cisco Gold partners

The Universal College of Learning (UCOL) has invited Cisco Gold partners to quote for the supply of the vendor’s switching equipment. The selected provider will also need to support UCOL for provision of any other required hardware.

The college has been running a legacy Cisco 6506 enterprise switch in the core of its network since about 2002. It has a six bay chassis, dual supervisor cards, dual AC power supplies, a 16 port 10/100/1Gb Ethernet card, 16 port fibre multimode card, and two vacant slots. The platform serves its WAN and server connections, with fibre connectivity to building switching round the Palmerston North campus.

It wants to replace this system with dual switches that interconnect through VSS. The replacement switches need to have one 24 port Ethernet card and one 24 port fibre card, and a 10Gb VSS connection. The college says facility for two ore more 10GBe ports to connection to the blade server’s chassis is highly desirable.

UCol says respondents should submit pricing based on both the Cisco 65XX range and 45XX range of switches and says it may elect to purchase only one half of the solution in 2010 and expand it later as funds permit.

The deadline for the request for quotation is 27 September.
