VERIFIABLE INDICATORS

Last Mile

The Last mile is presently planned through microwave connectivity. The recommended status should be through a optical fibre cabling from the nearest point of presence of one or two Internet Service Providers such as Glo Communication Networks Ltd or Main One Cables Ltd.

Internet Bandwidth

The present bandwidth is 0.256 Mbps provided by NCC. Procurement of additional 20 Mbps from MTN Communications Ltd is in the advanced stage. The recommended bandwidth density is 10-15 Mbps per 1000 active users (students and staff). The recommended bandwidth density for 5,000 active users is therefore 0.5

STM (75 Mbps). Terrestrial bandwidth will be preferred.

University Network

A comprehensive, ubiquitous, always on wired and wireless network that covers the entire geography of Federal University Oye-Ekiti is being executed. It is a hybrid implementation of a Fibre Optic backhaul, an extensive structured cabling to all major buildings for teaching, laboratory work, administration, student, staff

residences and WiFi for the last meter. Approximately 20 kilometres of Fibre Optics will be required to cover the entire university campus.

Central Storage

A storage area network of at least 100-200 TB (Terabytes) on which students and faculty can store data is recommended.

Data Centre & Network Operating Centre

A Tier-II Data Centre comprising of the Network Operating Centre with Network Management System, Routers, Switches, Firewall, Power Protection and Backup

System, System Integration VOIP, Access Control, Fire Detection and Suppression, Cooling System, Surveillance System, Central Storage is recommended. There is

presently two separate locations containing the Network Operating Centre and the Data Resource Centre.

Data Resource Centre

Comprehensive ICT Resource Centre consisting of Webinar rooms, networking rooms, software rooms, hardware rooms for teaching; global classrooms, e- learning laboratories, international certification centres for learning; software and hardware testing laboratories, data analysis centre, imaging and printing room, document management centre, videoconferencing rooms for research; infrastructure rooms for data storage, maintenance and repair shop, call centre.

Dedicated Power

Dedicated Power supply of the order of 0.5MW (0.25MW at Oye and 0.25MW Ikole campuses respectively)

Supply

preferably from renewable power source such as Solar.

High Performance Computing

High Performance Computer facility will be required that can be used for modelling, rendering, bioinformatics and computer intensive research.

Integrated Business Process using E-Business Solutions

To provide the information robustness required as the University works towards becoming a world-class university, the information management must be run on an integrated enterprise solution that integrates the University business processes in procurement, production, planning, project management, student lifecycle management, customer service, asset management, financial accounting, human resources, and analytics application.

Call Centre

A 24x7 call centre will be established to manage communication between teams and users. The call centre will be equipped with the latest state-of-the-art communications facilities. Performance measures of the call centre team will include holding time, problem solving duration, dispatch frequency and absolute number of calls handled.
