california s strategic partnerships resources
California’s Strategic Partnerships & Resources
  • Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California: CENIC
  • California Telehealth Network: CTN
  • California Advanced Services Fund: CASF
  • California Technology Fund: CTF
  • California Emerging Technology Fund: CETF
cenic california s research education network
CENIC California’s Research & Education Network
  • CENIC is a 501(c)3 created to serve California’s K-20 research & education institutions with cost-effective, high-bandwidth networking
  • Five Charter Associates: California Community Colleges, California K-12 System, California State University System, Private Universities, and the University of California System
cenic california s research education network1
CENIC: California’s Research & Education Network
  • 3,800+ miles of optical fiber
  • Members in all 58 counties connect via fiber-optic cable or leased circuits from telecom carriers
  • Nearly 10,000 sites connect to CENIC
  • 11,000,000 Californians use CENIC each day
  • Governed by members on the segmental level
cenic california s research education network2
CENIC: California’s Research & Education Network
  • Three networks operate simultaneously as independent layers on a single infrastructure
  • CalREN-Digital California (DC): daily use for e-mail, web browsing, videoconferencing, etc.
  • CalREN-High-Performance Research (HPR): high-performance research for big-science “power users”
  • CalREN-eXperimental Developmental (XD): bleeding-edge research on network itself
deployment progress
Deployment Progress
  • At the close of January CTN had direct connections to 272 healthcare sites with logical connections to 763 sites
  • Largest FCC funded statewide network
  • CTN has evolved into a “network of networks” including interconnections with:
      • CENIC which provides broadband access to all academic medical centers in California
      • California Rural Indian Health Board (CRIHB)
      • Indian Health Services broadband network
      • Open Door Health System
      • San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium
california advanced services fund casf
California Advanced Services Fund (CASF)
  • Program designed to bridge the digital divide in California’s unserved and underserved areas of the state by supporting the build out of broadband facilities.
  • Awards provide funding for up to 70% for unserved areas and up to 60% for underserved areas.
  • Underserved defined as less than 6Mbps download and 1Mbps upload.
  • As of December 31, 2013, a cumulative total of 2,691 new households, 151 businesses, and 208 anchor institutions have broadband access due to CASF.
california s central valley
California’s Central Valley

Central Valley Next Generation Broadband Infrastructure Project –

Connecting 18 Central Valley Counties:

  • Prime example of leveraging federal resources with state resources
california teleconnect fund ctf
California Teleconnect Fund (CTF)
  • Modeled after the federal E-rate program.
  • Established in 1996 as a commitment of California to universal service.
  • Provides 50% discount on the monthly reoccurring telecommunications costs for schools, libraries, community colleges, hospitals, California Telehealth Network members, and community based organizations that provide job training, health care or educational instruction.
  • Discount for schools and libraries applied after E-rate, even if the participant does not receive the discount.
california emerging technology fund cetf
California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF)
  • Created in 2005 by the mergers of ATT/PacBell and Verizon/MCI. Both carriers were required to contribute a total of $60 million to CETF.
  • CETF’s goals are expanding adoption and usage of broadband technology in addition to promoting ubiquitous access.
  • Focuses on five overarching strategies: Civic Leader Engagement; Venture Philanthropy Grantmaking; Public Policy Initiatives; Public Awareness and Education; andStrategic Partnerships.
  • Three priority consumer communities for grantmaking: Rural and Remote Areas; Urban Disadvantaged Neighborhoods; and People with Disabilities.
initiatives ab 2319 bonilla
Initiatives: AB 2319 (Bonilla)
  • Bill would establish the Broadband Infrastructure Fund to provide schools with adequate broadband capacity to support implementation of the new Common Core State Standards and the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress.
  • Prioritization of funding for schools with connectivity less than 100 Mbps, located in hard-to-serve areas, lack affordable options, or lack funding to complete planned projects.
  • Money would be provided in the state budget – estimated need about $700 million.
initiatives cenic librarynet
Initiatives: CENIC LibraryNet
  • Proposal: California’s Libraries join CENIC on the segmental level (alongside K12, CCC, CSU, UC, private universities)
    • CA State Librarian acts as interface w/CENIC
    • Potential to create a library-oriented layer within existing CENIC infrastructure
    • Libraries connect via K-12 and CCC sites (behind or in existing network “rings”) or independently
    • CA SB 331 (Liu): funding through CA Library Services Act
    • AB 110 (Budget Committee) Needs assessment and spending plan
I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a good book.
challenges to broadband access
Challenges to Broadband Access
  • Funding
  • Physical Infrastructure
  • Insufficient Bandwidth
  • Staff Training
  • Patron Demand
librarynet california s libraries as members of cenic
LibraryNet: California’s Libraries as Members of CENIC
  • Enable libraries to draw on and collaborate with K-20 communities
  • Representation in CENIC governance
  • Purpose-built for library needs
  • CENIC cloud-based services
  • Better and predictable budgeting
speed of internet connection
Speed of Internet Connection
  • More than 25 percent of responding California public libraries (227) report connecting at 1.5 Mbps or slower.
  • 52 percent of responding California public libraries (431) report connecting at 10 Mbps or slower.
  • 71 percent of responding California public libraries (589) report connecting at speeds at or below 20 Mbps.
  • Fewer than 5 percent (34) of responding California public libraries report operating at speeds of 500 Mbps or above.

What’s wrong with this picture?

  • A home in California may have access to 100Mbps of connectivity
  • A large proportion of libraries have access to only 1.5Mbps of connectivity
  • Such a library may serve 1000 or 10,000 patrons each day.

Costs of High-speed Broadband

California public libraries pay dearly on a cost-per-megabit basis for their network services.
