REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Department of Higher Education respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to transfer capital appropriation in the amount of $291,600.00 from Fund 7034, ALI C23532 (OARnet) to The Ohio State University Fund 7034, ALI C315H3 (Dark Fiber), in FY18, for the OARnet Network Equipment project in Columbus, Franklin County.  
  The "Dark Fiber Project" refers specifically to the OARnet Network. The OARnet network is a dedicated high-speed fiber-optic network linking Ohio colleges and universities with research facilities to support education, research, and promote economic development. It is a dedicated high-speed broadband network that was designed as a next generation network. In terms of physical infrastructure, the OARnet network is made up of 2,248 route miles of fiber optic cable that creates a statewide network backbone. In other words, the OARnet network is a statewide data transportation system for schools, research institutions, and government. This data transportation system serves the growing needs of education and research in Ohio due to the advanced capabilities of the network.

The advanced capabilities of the OARnet network come from how data is transported across the network. Instead of two streams of data on a traditional network, the OARnet network's fiber optic network can transport up to 32 high-capacity streams of data in each fiber optic cable. The data does not collide because each stream of data is on its own distinct wave of light. This technology is called Dense Wave Division Multiplexing or DWDM. Optical fiber provides the most cost-effective and scalable solution to higher education's long-term needs and can be customized to meet unique research and educational requirements.

The Ohio State University will approach the Controlling Board directly to release the appropriation for specific equipment. Please see The Ohio State University Controlling Board request OSU0100935 for specific equipment details.
