SUNYNet Intranet-Internet without CoS
Memorandum of Understanding for SUNY Intranet on Subscriber's AT&T Internet Access
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, to acquire networking equipment on behalf of the Subscriber and to operate it on the Subscriber's premises.
In this variation of "SUNY Intranet Service", the Subscriber's AT&T Internet service is used without AT&T's Class of Service (CoS) to carry SUNY-to-SUNY communications for special networked applications in the University. If Subscriber is obtaining AT&T Internet service through SUNYNet, then a separate Agreement is in already in place for that. This Agreement adds intranet services by having SUNYNet operate 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 two lines depict 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 Subscriber-to-AT&T interface, demarcA, is an Ethernet interface of the AT&T Router
[ Subscriber LAN router] ---- demarcS [ SUNYNet Router ] [ Subscriber LAN router] -------------------------------- demarcA [AT&T MIS Router] ----- [AT&T Internet]
SUNYNet's work domain starts at demarcS and extends to the right through the SUNYNet Router.
