    1.0 INTRODUCTION

    1.1. Statement of Objective

    The objective of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to enable the University of Central Florida (UCF) to acquire Cable TV Services from Cable TV Service providers. The purpose for cable TV services is providing educational and entertainment services to students residing in UCF’s residence halls,

    fraternities, sororities, and other special residential facilities. In addition, UCF faculty and staff use cable services for such purposes as public safety, general information, research, current events, and distance learning. The selected provider’s internal polices and operational procedures must be flexible to allow for creative solutions and effective implementations in meeting this challenge. Finally, UCF is seeking competitive service rates that are commensurate for a large university that is undergoing a rapid growth program, and where the vendor only bills one UCF unit; i.e., the UCF TeleData Services department.

    The Successful Proposer shall improve and maintain the existing cable television (CATV) system within the UCF campus and/or construct a new system that will improve existing offerings. The University seeks to enter into a five-year service agreement. The provider shall operate and maintain campus CATV service and be responsible for all functions incidental to and necessary for the operation of all cable television services. As part of this RFP and on an optional basis, the University seeks to entertain the notion of owning the infrastructure, including cable, electronics and improvements at the end of the contract period. UCF fully expects and accepts that the non-incumbent Proposers may have to place satellite receivers, off-air antennas and headend equipment in order to process their signals and programming.

    The scope of the required services sought by this RFP includes the following (details provided in Section 4.0):

     Distribute Cable TV services to all UCF buildings and residence halls on campus

    where UCF has conduit and fiber cable available.

     Distribute Cable TV services to all Central Florida Research Park buildings occupied

    by UCF faculty and staff and where UCF has underground conduit and fiber cable

    available.

     Distribute Cable TV services to the fraternity and sorority houses in Greek Park. The

    selected Proposer will be responsible for furnishing and installing the necessary

    underground conduit and cables according to University Telecommunications

    Construction Cost Containment Guidelines (See Attachment V).

     Allocate a minimum of ten (10) functional channels (set aside) that can be

    programmed by UCF (local origination).

     All satellite receiver antennas, if required by a Proposer, must be located at the

    WUCF Radio Tower. Satellite dishes must be mounted on the poles supporting the

    “ice bridge.” Aerials, if required, must use the WUCF RADIO Tower.

     Headend equipment, if required by a Proposer, must be located in Library Room 121.

    Single Mode fiber is available to transport programming from the WUCF Radio

    Tower to Library Room 121.

     Design a Cable TV system capable of providing broadband data services similar to ?Bright House Roadrunner to the Greek Park. Each House is to pay for this data

    service if and when they decide to subscribe; thus, the equipment/hardware will be

    placed as needed by the selected service provider.

    Depending on each Proposer’s capabilities and business objectives, Proposers are to provide optional service solutions/proposals to address the following issues (details provided in Section 5.0):

     UCF is to own the infrastructure including cable, electronics and improvements at

    the end of the contract period after a five year term has expired.

     Provide an option to allow UCF to buy the infrastructure (cable, electronics and

    improvements) during the term of the agreement and sets forth a definitive buyout

    price as of the end of each year of the award period.

     Provide the University the flexibility to add or delete services on sixty (60) day

    notice. The flexibility of selecting programming includes, but not limited to, PAEC,

    Florida’s distance learning network, Research TV, SCOLA, and foreign language

    programming from Asia, Middle East, Africa, South America, and Europe.

     Provide a streaming video solution that will allow for some or all of the video

    programming on campus to be delivered to the computer as well as the TV.

     Provide emergency interrupt capability to allow the UCF Police department or the

    appropriate UCF authority to interrupt normal service and distribute emergency

    information.

    The Successful Proposer, if any, will enter into a contract with UCF that provides for the performance of all the mandatory conditions and requirements in this RFP and any proposed conditions and requirements that UCF prefers in this RFP or that UCF determines are in UCF’s best interest.

    1.2. UCF Environment

    1.2.1 UCF Operating Environment

     The University of Central Florida owns no cable TV distribution facilities. Bright House provides all current cable TV services to and within the campus and the adjoining Research Park. Bright House provides their Basic and Standard channel line up as their baseline cable service package at one flat monthly rate per drop. Academic buildings are provided cable services at no charge. Only non-academic entities are charged for cable TV services; UCF TeleData Services collects the monthly cable TV charges from non-academic entities and then pays Bright House. Bright House does not charge UCF for system upgrades, network expansions, and entrance facilities into new buildings.

Bright House’s cable service is trunked to one (1) location on campus via fiber. Bright House’s

    fiber termination and fiber node are in the Library Building, Room 121. From this location and the fiber node, they distribute cable services via a coaxial base bi-directional system. It is at this fiber node location where OIR’s premise origination channels are inserted into Bright House’s distribution network. Bright House blocks the regular programming on Channels 19, 21, 80 and 81 for UCF to insert local origination programming. Bright House’s system provides basic and standard channel lineup (64 channels) for a monthly per drop rate. Bright House also has the capability of providing enhanced services that includes, digital cable, premium channels both In

    Demand analog and In Demand digital, Roadrunner, HDTV on digital premium channels, and digital music. Bright House currently does not provide local loop or trunk voice services to UCF.

    Since all of the campus residence halls are wired with Ethernet, the Roadrunner service is primarily used by the Greek Park.

    1.3 Current Drop Population and Channel Line Up

    The enrollment for Fall 2004 was approximately 44,000 students. Currently, approximately 2,880 students reside on UCF’s main campus in dormitories and apartments served via the existing cable service provider. The current service provider distributes their baseline and standard channel line up identified as the baseline service totaling 64 channels.

Present number of billable cable service outlets:

    1.4 Future Developments

    The Arena area on campus is being developed over the next two years to provide student housing as well as retail outlets, restaurants, and sports events for the general public as well as students. These new facilities will require cable TV services. The student housing portion (2,000+ beds) of this

    development is expected to be operational by the Fall 2005 semester. UCF’s Master plan calls for

    additional Greek Park houses on campus. These future developments will increase the number of billable drops. Thus, UCF expects all Proposers to take this growth into account, when responding to Section 7.0 of this RFP.

    1.5 Current Baseline Service to Academic Buildings

    All Academic buildings are provided a baseline service at no charge under the current service agreement. This base line service is comprised of Bright House’s basic and standard channel line up.

    In this RFP, UCF is seeking the same arrangement for having “base line” programming services

    provided at no charge to all Academic buildings. Proposers should design their network for supporting a minimum of five (5) drops or outlets per UCF building.

    1.6 Current Local Origination

    The current service provider provides UCF four (4) channels for local origination. The Office of Instructional Resources (OIR) currently uses channels 19 and 21. The channels distribute local origination programming on-campus only. Housing is using channel 80 to send local origination programming via baseband to Bright House’s headend. Bright House reprocesses and combines the

    Housing programming into the channel line-up and sends the channel line-up to three fiber nodes serving the UCF campus and off-campus areas near the campus include Pegasus Landing and Pegasus Pointe apartments. The local origination signals are currently inserted at the current
