between 2 configurations
9 Frame relay Circuits

Help Desk Maintenance of 12 sites

Total Coordination needed when Agency ad extra sites.

3 Frame Relay Circuits

Help Desk Maintenance of 3 sites

Agency can move at their own speed when adding or moving sites.

Between 2 Configurations
assistance with configuration and routing
Assistance with Configuration and Routing?
  • With those sort of annual savings just from one Agency, will they assist you to get this up and running?
  • You Bet They Will.
what do you need
What Do You Need?
  • An Agency WAN
  • An Addressable Port on an Agency Router, that is capable of running a NAT Pool. (The issue of IP address ranges needs to be coordinated by the State to avert routing conflicts)
  • A Thin Client
ongoing issues
Ongoing Issues
  • Microsoft design issue – There is no way that you can effect a Password change in one Domain from a different Domain.
  • Email interoperability – must have compatibility between Agency and State mail systems – Use of Custom Recipient facility within Outlook can be used to automatically send mail directly to the Agency Mail Server, however, reverse lookup back into State Global Address list from within Agency, can only be achieved using LDAP on each individual workstation, if the Agency system is LDAP compatible.
ongoing issues1
Ongoing Issues
  • Legacy Systems – some ‘In House’ legacy applications may not be TCP/IP friendly, especially those that have been set up to use 3270 terminal emulation, for Mainframe Applications.
  • Abuse by Agencies of State resources.
  • Lack of coordination between different departments within the State!
