SUNYNet Standard Intranet
Memorandum of Understanding for SUNY Intranet Service
Scope of This Agreement
This Memorandum of Understanding (herein called Agreement)defines a service relationship between the networking office of a SUNY institution (herein called Subscriber) and SUNYNet Technology Services, an office within SUNY System Administration in Albany (herein called SUNYNet). The Agreement authorizes SUNYNet, on behalf of the Subscriber, to act as the Subscriber's agent in acquiring and operating commercial networking services. Legal and contractual terms and conditions related to the commercial services which the Subscriber is requesting through this Agreement are defined in contracts and tariffs.
"SUNY Intranet Service" provides SUNY-to-SUNY communications, designed by SUNYNet, for special networked applications in the University. The service uses AT&T Managed Internet Service (MIS) under terms of the contract with the New York State Office of General Services (contract # PS57455) and includes an Internet port, a local access line ordered through AT&T, and an AT&T leased router as the demarcation equipment on the Subscriber's premises. SUNYNet operates an intranet router on the Subscriber's premises to provide encryption and tunneling for defined SUNY-to-SUNY communications and to perform packet marking for application priority when needed.
The following line depicts the points of demarcations (demarcs) for determining responsibility and work domains within the service offered under the Agreement. The Subscriber-to-SUNYNet interface, demarcS, is an Ethernet interface of the SUNYNet Router. The SUNYNet-to-AT&T interface, demarcA, is an Ethernet interface of the AT&T Router
