(i)Permanent DAS System.  Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Section 4.1.1, the Permittee shall, after connection to the DAS System by a Carrier User, operate the DAS System at the WTC Site in accordance with a performance standard (the “Permanent DAS System Performance Standard”) that is the greatest of (i) prevailing commercial

12


 

CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED

 

performance standards for a state of the art DAS System utilized in a world-class mixed use facility (provided that if the Port Authority contends that the DAS System does not comply with such prevailing commercial performance standards and the DAS System would require upgrades or improvements to comply with such standards, the Permittee’s obligation to make such upgrades or improvements to bring the DAS System into compliance shall be subject to the Port Authority and Permittee negotiating in good faith the terms and conditions for any required upgrades or improvements) and (ii) the following detailed standards:

(A)DAS System coverage within [*] or greater of the DAS Designated Coverage Areas shall have signal levels at -65dBm (above grade) or -75dBm (below grade) or better at all times (collectively, the “Signal Level Range”).  In the event certain DAS Designated Coverage Areas meet the Signal Level Range less than [*] of the time, on average, as a result of the design of the DAS System or known signal strength limiting site conditions, the Permittee shall identify such areas (the “Under Covered Areas”) and specify the expected user experience for the Under Covered Areas.  If the total square footage of the Under Covered Areas is greater than [*] of the DAS Designated Coverage Areas, then the DAS System shall be deemed not to satisfy the foregoing detailed standard unless such degraded service is caused by failures of Carrier User equipment or other causes outside of the control of Permittee.

(B)The DAS System shall be available (a) [*] of the time or greater from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily (“Peak Times”) and (b) [*] of the time or greater on average during all hours (i.e., Peak Times and Off-Peak Times).  If the accumulated DAS System downtime during any Annual Period exceeds (y) [*] for Peak Times or (z) [*] on average during all hours (i.e., Peak Times and Off-Peak Times), Permittee shall be deemed not to satisfy the foregoing detailed standard.  For the purposes of this Section 4.1.1(a)(2), availability and downtime determinations shall be calculated based on the amount of devices that are able to access the DAS System at any time and from time to time, in a manner as reasonably determined by the Port Authority.  For purposes of illustration only, and without limiting the right of the Port Authority to make reasonable determinations pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence, a sample calculation methodology is set forth on Schedule 2 attached hereto. 

 (ii)Temporary System.  The Permittee shall operate each Temporary System at the WTC Site so that the Temporary System Areas are provided with DAS Service in accordance with the so-called “3G” protocols promulgated by the International Telecommunications Union (the “Temporary System Performance Standard”) from the period commencing upon the connection to such Temporary System by a Carrier User until the permanent DAS System for the applicable area is delivered, commissioned in accordance with applicable QAD requirements and fully operational (as applicable) in accordance with this Supplement.

UTILITIES

9.1Electricity.  Subject to all terms and conditions of this Supplement, the Port Authority shall ensure that such electricity as is reasonably necessary for initial System Operations (as described in the System Plans and Specifications) is made available for use by the Permittee.  Any additional capacity outside of the System Plans and Specifications shall be paid for by the Permittee as provided in this Section 9.1.  

9.1.1  The Port Authority shall periodically throughout the Term, at such times as the Port Authority may elect, arrange for a survey of the Permittee's equipment by the Port Authority or its designee or by an independent utility consultant to be selected by the Port Authority for the purpose of establishing the Permittee's annual consumption of and demand for electricity (such consumption of and demand for electricity being hereinafter referred to as “Electricity Consumption and Demand”).  Such Electricity Consumption and Demand shall be based on the Permittee's electrical equipment and the frequency and duration of the use thereof.  The Permittee's annual Electricity Consumption and Demand shall be divided by the number of "Billing Periods" per Annual Period established by the public utility company supplying electricity in the vicinity of the World Trade Center so as to determine the Electricity Consumption and Demand per Billing Period.  The Port Authority shall compute the cost of such Electricity Consumption and Demand as determined by the survey based on the greater of (1) the rates (including the fuel or other adjustment factor if any) which the Permittee at the time of such purchase and under the service classification then applicable to it would have to pay for the same quantity of electricity to be used for the same purposes under the same conditions if it received the electricity directly from the public utility supplying the same to commercial buildings in the vicinity and (2) the Port Authority's cost of obtaining and supplying the same quantity of electricity, provided, however, that in no event shall the Port Authority charge the Permittee for any Electricity Consumption and Demand in excess of amounts the Port Authority is legally or contractually permitted to charge for such Electricity Consumption and Demand.  The Permittee shall pay the cost of such Electricity Consumption and Demand for each such Billing Period to the Port Authority at the time the next Variable Fee payment following the close of such Billing Period is due and the same shall be deemed fees collectible in the same manner and with like remedies as if it were a part of the Variable Fees hereunder. The determination of Electricity Consumption and Demand by survey shall be effective until the next succeeding survey and shall be binding and conclusive on both the Permittee and the Port Authority as to all matters, including but not limited to the frequency and duration of use of the Permittee's electrical equipment at the World Trade Center by the Permittee.  The cost of each such survey shall be borne by the Port Authority, provided that if the Permittee makes any alterations or improvements at the WTC Site in accordance with the provisions of this Supplement or otherwise which may result in greater Consumption or Demand, the Port Authority may direct a new survey to establish the Electricity Consumption and Demand for electricity at the World Trade Center and the cost thereof shall be borne by the Permittee.  Any method of measurement used herein shall not preclude the Port Authority from reverting to the use of any prior method.  In lieu of a determination of Electricity Consumption and Demand by survey, the same may be measured by meter which the Port Authority may install at its option, exercised at any time during the Term, and if for any reason any meter fails to

27


 

CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED

 

record the consumption of electricity, the consumption of electricity during any such period that the meter is out of service will be considered to be the same as the consumption for a like period either immediately before or immediately after the interruption as selected by the Port Authority.  If the Port Authority elects to install any such meter or meters, then (i) the Permittee shall pay to the Port Authority the full cost of the installation and operation of any such meter(s) that is installed in connection with the Initial System Construction Work and (ii) the Permittee shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide for the full payment or reimbursement by the Carrier Users of the cost of the installation and operation of any such meter(s) that is installed at any time after the Initial System Construction Work and, if the Permittee is not able to obtain such full payment or reimbursement from the Carrier Users, then the Permittee shall pay to the Port Authority one-half the amount of such costs, in each case such amounts to be paid at the time the next Variable Fee payment following the close of the applicable Billing Period is due and the same shall be deemed fees collectible in the same manner and with like remedies as if such amounts were a part of the Variable Fees hereunder.

9.1.2  Notwithstanding that the Port Authority has agreed to supply electricity to the Permittee, the Port Authority shall be under no obligation to provide or continue such service if the Port Authority is prevented by law, agreement or otherwise from metering or measuring electrical consumption as set forth in Section 9.1.1 or elects not to so meter or measure consumption of the same, and in any such event, the Permittee shall make all arrangements and conversions necessary to obtain electricity directly from the applicable public utility. Also in such event, the Permittee shall perform the construction necessary for conversion and if any lines or equipment of the Port Authority are with the consent of the Port Authority used therefor, the Permittee shall pay to the Port Authority its pro rata share of the reasonable costs and expenses for said lines and equipment.

9.1.3  The supply of electricity shall be made by the Port Authority at such points as are designated in the applicable approved Construction Application for connection of the electrical distribution systems to be installed by the Permittee with the Port Authority's lines and conduits, and the Port Authority shall have no responsibility for the distribution of electrical current beyond the points of connection to the System.

9.1.4  The Port Authority shall have the right to discontinue temporarily the supply of any of the above services when necessary or desirable in the reasonable opinion of the Port Authority in order to make any repairs, alterations, changes or improvements in the premises or elsewhere at the World Trade Center, including but not limited to all systems for the supply of services. Except in cases of emergency, the Port Authority shall give the Permittee reasonable prior notice before discontinuing the supply of services pursuant to the provisions of this Section 9.1.4.  The Port Authority may not claim a Performance Standard Violation to the extent caused solely by any such temporary discontinuation. 

9.1.5  No failure, delay, interruption or reduction in any service or services shall be or shall be construed to be an eviction of the Permittee, shall be grounds for any diminution or abatement of the fees or other amounts payable hereunder or shall constitute grounds for any claim by the Permittee for damages, consequential or otherwise, unless due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Port Authority, its employees or agents.

9.1.6  The Port Authority shall be under no obligation to supply any service or services if and to the extent and during any period that the supplying of any such service or services or the use of any component necessary therefor shall be prohibited or rationed by any federal, state or municipal law, rule, regulation, requirement, order or direction and if the Port Authority deems it in the public interest to comply therewith, even though such law, rule, regulation, requirement, order or direction may not be mandatory on the Port Authority as a public agency.

9.2Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.  Subject to all terms and conditions of this Supplement, the Port Authority shall ensure that such heating, ventilation and air conditioning service (“HVAC Service”) as is reasonably necessary for System Operations is provided to the Point of Interface room and any other areas outside of such Point of Interface room that are reasonably necessary for System Operations, the quantity of such HVAC Service supplied to the Permittee to be in accordance with the design criteria and capacity of the System and to be paid for by the Permittee as provided in this Section 9.2.

9.2.1  The Port Authority shall periodically throughout the Term, at such times as the Port Authority may elect, arrange for a survey of the Permittee's equipment by the Port Authority or its designee or by an independent utility consultant to be selected by the Port Authority for the purpose of establishing the Permittee's annual consumption of and demand for HVAC Service (such consumption of and demand for HVAC Service being hereinafter referred to as “HVAC Consumption and Demand”).  Such HVAC Consumption and Demand shall be based on the Permittee's HVAC equipment and the frequency and duration of the use thereof.  The Permittee's annual HVAC Consumption and Demand shall be divided by the number of Billing Periods per Annual Period so as to determine the HVAC Consumption and Demand per Billing Period. The Port Authority shall compute the cost of such HVAC Consumption and Demand based on the greater of (i) the Port Authority's cost of obtaining and supplying the HVAC Service and (ii) an amount equal to the cost of the Electricity Consumption and Demand determined in accordance with Section 9.1 on account of the Port Authority’s provision of HVAC Service to the Permittee for such Billing Period (which amount shall be in addition to, not replacement of, the payment due on account of such Electricity Consumption and Demand pursuant to Section 9.1).  The Permittee shall pay the cost of such HVAC Consumption and Demand for each such Billing Period to the Port Authority at the time the next Variable Fee payment following the close of such Billing Period is due and the same shall be deemed fees collectible in the same manner and with like remedies as if it were a part of the Variable Fees hereunder.  Any method of measurement used herein shall not preclude the Port Authority from reverting to the use of any prior method.  In lieu of a determination of HVAC Consumption and Demand as described above, the same may be measured by meter which the Port Authority may install at its option, exercised at any time during the Term, and if for any reason any meter fails to record the consumption of HVAC Service, the consumption of HVAC Service during any such period that the meter is out of service will be considered to be the same as the consumption for a like period either immediately before or immediately after the interruption as selected by the Port Authority.  If the Port Authority elects to install any such meter or meters, then (i) the Permittee shall pay to the Port Authority the full cost of the installation and operation of any such meter(s) that is installed in connection with the Initial System Construction Work and (ii) the Permittee shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide for the full payment or reimbursement by the Carrier Users of the cost of the installation and operation of any such meter(s)

that is installed at any time after the Initial System Construction Work and, if the Permittee is not able to obtain such full payment or reimbursement from the Carrier Users, then the Permittee shall pay to the Port Authority one-half the amount of such costs, in each case such amounts to be paid at the time the next Variable Fee payment following the close of the applicable Billing Period is due and the same shall be deemed fees collectible in the same manner and with like remedies as if such amounts were a part of the Variable Fees hereunder.

9.2.2  The supply of HVAC Service shall be made by the Port Authority at such points as are designated in the applicable approved Construction Application for connection of the electrical distribution systems to be installed by the Permittee with the Port Authority's lines and conduits, and the Port Authority shall have no responsibility for the distribution of HVAC Service beyond the points of connection to the System.

9.2.3  The Port Authority shall have the right to discontinue temporarily the supply of any of the above services when necessary or desirable in the reasonable opinion of the Port Authority in order to make any repairs, alterations, changes or improvements in the premises or elsewhere at the World Trade Center, including but not limited to all systems for the supply of services. Except in cases of emergency, the Port Authority shall give the Permittee reasonable prior notice before discontinuing the supply of services pursuant to the provisions of this Section 9.2.3.  The Port Authority may not claim a Performance Standard Violation to the extent caused solely by any such temporary discontinuation.

9.2.4  No failure, delay, interruption or reduction in any service or services shall be or shall be construed to be an eviction of the Permittee, shall be grounds for any diminution or abatement of the fees or other amounts payable hereunder, or shall constitute grounds for any claim by the Permittee for damages, consequential or otherwise, unless due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Port Authority, its employees or agents.

9.2.5  The Port Authority shall be under no obligation to supply any service or services if and to the extent and during any period that the supplying of any such service or services or the use of any component necessary therefor shall be prohibited or rationed by any federal, state or municipal law, rule, regulation, requirement, order or direction and if the Port Authority deems it in the public interest to comply therewith, even though such law, rule, regulation, requirement, order or direction may not be mandatory on the Port Authority as a public agency.

9.3Government Charges.  If any federal, state, municipal or other governmental body, authority or agency or any public utility assesses, levies, imposes, make or increases any charge, fee or rent on the Port Authority for any service, system or utility now or in the future supplied to the Permittee or to any of its Carrier Users, then, at the option of the Port Authority exercised at any time and from time to time by notice to the Permittee, the Permittee shall pay, in accordance with said notice, such charge, fee or rent or increase thereof (or the portion thereof equitably allocated by the Port Authority to the Permittee's operations hereunder) either directly to the governmental body, authority or agency or to the public utility or directly to the Port Authority.

11.3Schedule Milestone Defaults.  The Permittee shall be in default of this Supplement if it fails to meet any Initial Schedule Milestone or the Retail Schedule Milestone (any such default, a “Schedule Milestone Default”). 

11.3.1  Regardless of the Port Authority’s knowledge of such Schedule Milestone Default, and in addition to the remedies set forth this Section 11.3 and Section 11.8, upon the occurrence of any Schedule Milestone Default, the Permittee at no cost to the Port Authority, shall (i) use best efforts to complete the Initial System Construction Work and any other work that was required to be completed by the applicable Initial Schedule Milestone or the Retail Schedule Milestone at the earliest possible time following such milestone and (ii) prepare and issue to the Port Authority within one (1) business day after the applicable Initial Schedule Milestone or the Retail Schedule Milestone an analysis and narrative statement that outlines the cause of the Schedule Milestone Default and the steps taken and to be taken by the Permittee to complete the Initial System Construction Work and any other work that was required to be completed by such Initial Schedule Milestone or the Retail Schedule Milestone.

11.3.2Upon the occurrence of any Schedule Milestone Default (subject to extension of the applicable Initial Schedule Milestones pursuant to Section 7.2.1,  7.3 or Section 11.10, if applicable) other than a Grand Opening Milestone Default, the Permittee shall incur liquidated damages in the amount of [*] for each day that such Schedule Milestone Default has not been cured from and after the twentieth (20th) day following the applicable Initial Schedule Milestone.

11.3.4  The Parties acknowledge and agree that (i) the liquidated damages described in Sections 11.3.2 and 11.3.3 are a reasonable estimate of and bear a reasonable relationship to the damages that would be suffered and costs incurred by the Port Authority as a result of the applicable Schedule Milestone Defaults, (ii) the actual damages suffered and costs incurred by the Port Authority as a result of any such Schedule Milestone Defaults would be extremely difficult and impractical to determine and (iii) the applicable amounts shall be and constitute valid liquidated damages on account of such Schedule Milestone Defaults.

11.4Major Defaults.  The Port Authority may terminate this Supplement on not less than twenty (20) calendar days written Notice to the Permittee if the Permittee shall default in the performance or observance of any other material term, condition or covenant contained in this Supplement not falling under Section 11.2 or Section 11.3 (any such default, a “Major Default”) and such Major Default shall continue for a period of thirty (30) calendar days after the earlier of written notice thereof (a “Major Default Notice”) shall have been received by the Permittee or such time as the Permittee has become aware of such Major Default, provided that a ten (10) calendar day period shall apply with respect to any failure to make a monetary payment hereunder.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such a Major Default (other than a monetary default) is such that it is reasonably susceptible to cure but cannot reasonably be remedied within thirty (30) calendar days and the Permittee has, in good faith, commenced cure of such Major Default within ten (10) calendar days after being notified or becoming aware of any such Major Default, then the Port Authority shall not be entitled to terminate this Supplement pursuant to this Section 11.4 for a sixty (60) calendar day period following such Major Default Notice or the date upon which the Permittee became aware of such Major Default so long as the Permittee is diligently prosecuting the cure to its completion.  By way of example only, and without limitation, the Parties acknowledge and agree that the occurrence any of the following events shall be deemed to be a Major Default: (a) the Permittee’s failure to make payments as and when due under this Supplement, (b) repeated System Performance Violations that together evidence a pattern and practice which is materially inconsistent with the standard of service required by the System Performance Standard or (c) repeated defaults by the Permittee in the performance or observance of any term, condition or covenant contained in this Supplement that together evidence a pattern and practice inconsistent with the Permittee’s obligations under this Supplement.

11.5Other Defaults.  The Permittee shall be in default of this Supplement if it defaults in the performance or observance of any term, condition or covenant contained in this Supplement not falling under Section 11.2,  Section 11.3 or Section 11.4 (an “Other Default”) and such default shall continue for a period of thirty (30) calendar days after written notice thereof (an “Other Default Notice”) shall have been received by the non-defaulting party specifying such default and requesting that the same be remedied in such thirty (30) calendar day period, provided that a ten (10) calendar day period shall apply with respect to any failure to make a monetary payment hereunder; and provided further that if such Other Default (other than a monetary default) is such that it is reasonably susceptible to cure but cannot reasonably be remedied within thirty (30) calendar days and the Permittee has, in good faith, commenced cure of such Other Default within ten (10) calendar days after being notified of any such Other Default, then the Port Authority shall not be entitled to terminate

this Supplement pursuant to this Section 11.4 so long as the Permittee is diligently prosecuting the cure to its completion.

11.6Default Notices.  The Port Authority shall notify the Permittee in writing of any default condition it observes, provided that the Port Authority’s failure to provide any such notification shall in no event have any effect on any other provision of the other provisions of this Article XI.

11.7Self-Help.  If at any time (i) the Permittee shall fail to pay or perform any of its obligations in accordance with the terms and provisions of this Supplement, (ii) such failure is not of the type described in Section 39 of the Original Agreement (as incorporated in this Supplement pursuant to Section 11.10) and (iii) such failure shall continue for a period of five (5) calendar days after receipt of written notice thereof to the Permittee (except in the event of an emergency in which case written notice shall be furnished as soon as reasonably possible), then the Port Authority may, without limitation of any other available remedies, perform the same or arrange for alternative performance of the same until such time as the Permittee cures its failure to perform.  The Port Authority shall be entitled to payment from the Permittee for all costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) paid or incurred by the Port Authority in performing such work.

11.8Remedies; No Waiver.  Upon the occurrence of and during the continuation of any default described in Sections 11.2,  11.3 or 11.4 or otherwise, all or any one or more of the rights, powers, privileges and other remedies available to the Port Authority against the Permittee under this Supplement or at law or in equity may be exercised by the Port Authority at any time and from time to time.  Any such actions taken by the Port Authority shall be cumulative and concurrent and may be pursued independently, singly, successively, together or otherwise, at such time and in such order as the Port Authority may determine in its sole discretion, to the fullest extent permitted by law, without impairing or otherwise affecting the other rights and remedies of the Port Authority permitted by law, equity or contract or as set forth herein. No acceptance by the Port Authority of fees or other payments in whole or in part for any period or periods after a default in any of the terms, covenants and conditions to be performed, kept or observed by the Permittee shall be deemed a waiver of any right on the part of the Port Authority to terminate this Supplement.  No waiver by the Port Authority of any default on the part of the Permittee in performance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions hereof to be performed, kept or observed by the Permittee shall be or be construed to be a waiver by the Port Authority of any other or subsequent default in performance of any of the said terms, covenants and conditions.

11.9Imputation of Actions of Carrier Users.  Without in any way affecting the obligations of the Permittee under this Supplement, all acts and omissions of the Carrier Users shall be deemed acts and omissions of the Permittee hereunder, provided, however, that the Permittee shall not be or be deemed to be in default to the extent that any of the foregoing shall constitute a breach hereof if the causes thereof are beyond the control of the Permittee or if the Permittee shall have commenced to remedy said default within twenty (20) calendar days after receipt of notice thereof from the Port Authority and continues diligently to pursue such remedy without interruption.

Exhibit C

 

Summary Basis of Design

 

1.0Introduction

 

1.1Purpose

This exhibit  provides a general  overview of  the  wireless  communications  system(s)  known as the multi-wireless service, neutral-host Distributed Antenna System (the “DAS System”) and Wireless Local Area Network (the “Wi-Fi System”) respectively. Collectively known as the Telecommunications Network Access System (TNAS). The Systems are designed specifically for the areas of the World Trade Center complex as shown in EXHIBIT B-1, EXHIBIT B-2 and EXHIBIT B-3 to extend wireless services to the patrons, tenants, and visitors of those facilities.  

 

1.2General Description

 

1.2.1DAS System

 

The DAS is designed to provide a single, comprehensive, wireless voice and data access  system for the Port Authority (PA) and  the wireless service  providers to  better  serve  tenants,  patrons,  commuters,   and visitors  as they inhabit, roam,  or are transported through  the  PA   facilities. The DAS is a multi-service system capable of supporting the services and technologies of today and those of the foreseeable future.

 

The DAS provides a broadband, technology-neutral, RF distribution backbone that allows for neutral equal access of all service providers wishing to join the system. The system offers seamless hand-off of service between the PA facilities and the existing cellular networks. The flexible system architecture allows for future expansion and upgrade as new services or technologies become commercially available.

 

The DAS extends radio frequency signals throughout the required coverage areas within the PA facilities in a substantially uniform manner. The facilities contain a variety of architectural features. To design the system in the most cost  effective way, the DAS architecture incorporates a variety of engineering techniques and state-of the-art products; including multi-band Omni-directional an directional antennas, radiating coaxial cable, non-radiating  coaxial cable, single mode fiber optic cable, fiber optic receivers, transmitters and combiners, RF amplifiers, and a variety of passive and active RF combiners.

CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED

 

A simplified diagram representative of the DAS architecture is provided in FIGURE 1.

 

Picture 1

 

FIGURE 1: DAS ARCHITECTURE *

 

The Base Transceiver Station (BTS) interface equipment combines and processes the Wireless Service Providers’ (WSP) signals and distributes them directly to the Point of Interface (POI) of the DAS. The POI combines multiple RF signals and converts those signals to analog light that is fed into a single mode fiber optic backbone network. The base stations and POI units, and RF to light converters are installed in the POI room. The analog light is then converted back to RF in the IDF closets by the remote amplifier units. The remote amplifier units provide a zero sum gain to the RF signals. The RF is then “distributed” to one or more antennas via coaxial cable in a Single Input Single Output (SISO) configuration. For the Multi Input Multi Output (MIMO) case, there are two separate coaxial distribution plants that provide independent signals for greater data speed and quality.

 

* TEMPORARY SYSTEM – In place of the POI / BTS room in Figure 1 above, “Broadband” antennas, known as donor sites, will be installed above grade on masts at the WTC site to communicate with the wireless (WSP) Macro sites in the surrounding neighborhood.  The above grade donor site antennas will be cabled in conduit to the appropriately located DAS repeater room(s). The repeaters are the amplifier electronics that will connect to the DAS antennas below grade.

1.2.2Wi-Fi System

 

The Wi-Fi system is proposed to support high-density coverage throughout the venue as described in Exhibit B-3 and is proposed to support all cellular and Wi-Fi users, tenants, applications, and systems. All of the necessary materials and labor to provide a fully functional, enterprise level network that includes backbone, access routers, core switches, edge switches, endpoints, enclosures, access points, and all associated raceways, back-boxes, and enclosures is proposed to be provided.

 

The system is proposed to utilize 801.11 N AP’s, Routers, and Switches throughout the public and private coverage areas as defined in Exhibit B-3 including all licensure for software, and operating system. Frequencies and channel assignments is proposed to be coordinated with other networks as necessary and ensure the network is proposed to support all Wi-Fi applications and users. Internet circuit bandwidth is proposed to be based on the highest capacity and use.

 

The Wi-Fi system is proposed to synergize the available deployed DAS infrastructure to the fullest extent. Implementation of devices is proposed to require installation of Category 6 cabling. Access point required performance data in accordance with the 802.11 standard is proposed to be used for predictive modeling in order to create this design. The following criteria is proposed to be used to estimate necessary equipment performance requirements to best predict Access Point placement, type, quantity and specifications. This requirement criterion is proposed to be used throughout the predictive modeling process.

Primary and Secondary Routers

The primary/secondary routers is proposed to be configured in an active-active mode. They is proposed to be managed via an out-of-band router on a management DSL line separate from the primary guest WAN circuit. If the primary WAN circuit goes down, via the OOB DSL line, we is proposed to be able to manage the primary/secondary router to edit the default route to the secondary guest WAN circuit maintaining connectivity for all guests.

CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED

 

Primary and Secondary Gateways

The primary/secondary gateway is proposed to be linked via two separate gigabit Ethernet connections to each core distribution switch. If the primary WAN circuit goes down, the default route on each gateway can be changed to the secondary WAN circuit by access through the OOB router via a management DSL line.

Primary and Secondary Core Distribution Switches

The primary/secondary core switches are in an active-active configuration meaning, if one of the switches goes offline or is unavailable, traffic is proposed to be automatically re-routed, (using spanning-tree) to the other active switch without any interruption to traffic. 

Primary and Secondary Wireless LAN Controllers

The primary/secondary wireless LAN controllers are in an active-standby configuration. If the primary one fails, the standby (Cisco WLC-HA) is proposed to be where all of the APs home to. Once the primary comes back online or is replaced, all APs is proposed to be pushed back to the primary controller.

Primary and Secondary Access Layer Switches

Primary/Secondary access layer switches are in an active-active configuration. All APs being serviced by that IDF closet are equally distributed on both switches to provide wireless coverage redundancy in the case of an AP or access switch failure. Each access switch has two homeruns; one to each core switch providing network redundancy.

 

Platforms

 

The system is proposed to be enabled to use a variety of available media, advertising, way finding, and data collection platforms.

 

2.0Venue Description

 

2.1Transportation Hub/Retail

 

The transportation hub is projected to be the third largest transportation hub in New York City. The hub DAS coverage is proposed to be approximately 1.1 MM square feet.
