Request for Quote: Telecommunication Services to Global Geophysical Stations (EarthScope 001)

EarthScope is looking to obtain IP-based streaming telecommunication service for geophysical and state of health data for 37 remote locations. EarthScope prefers that the service solution proposed be the same for all locations in so far as possible. EarthScope does understand that this may not be possible, and therefore will accept proposals for different solutions at a minority of locations. Regardless of solution technology, having a single operations/management interface that provides access to the current link status and traffic statistics for all locations is desired.

Detailed specifications and requirements can be found in the solicitation document.
