Instead of the participating TAFEs in South Australia being able to work freely with any of the other participants in the Project access to connectivity between Gilles Plains TAFE and CIT for the dental project was set up to run over a private network between the two sites. The connection must be made from the South Australian end of the link. CIT will not be able to make calls from their system during the trial, but will receive the videoconference call and streaming video from Adelaide. An IP address on the standard AARNet network also had to be provided for connectivity to the VETVirtual servers. 3.2 Victoria In Victoria, TAFEs are autonomous entities with few constraints on the contracting ability, including network provisioning. However, the VSC has proposed a state-based TAFE Broadband Network, and while the contracts for the provision of network services were with individual TAFEs, the Proof of Concept Network Project Final ReportJanuary 2010 Page 16 of 55

Victorian TAFEs initially insisted on an “on-net only” connection because of the proposed state-based network. However after the initial implementation they found little value in the limited connectivity and each of the connected sites soon asked to have their connection changed to include full Internet access and unmetered access to AARNet’s peers and content providers. This was the cause of the change in design of the network in Victoria from what was originally proposed. At the end of the Project the following TAFEs were connected: Kangan Batman, William Angliss, Wodonga and Gordon and the four dual-sector institutions. On the signing of the head contract between the VSC and DEEWR, VSC had been given a high degree of discretion as to which TAFEs would be connected. The indecision and changes of TAFEs to be included or not was also detrimental to Project outcomes. For example, East Gippsland TAFE was not connected. Although VERNet provisioned the circuit in the first week of June, the connection was cancelled by Victorian Skills commission days before it was due to be activated. AARNet initially proposed to do a direct build into Gordon TAFE and then later negotiated access to fibre owned by another carrier which was already installed into the TAFE building, however VSC preferred that VicTrack be engaged build a new connection into Gordon TAFE in line with their state-based network plan. Although VicTrack provided initial estimates, final quotes to order against were not provided as they could not provide a circuit to any of AARNet’s sites within Melbourne CBD. 3.2.1 Australian Capital Territory CIT has been connected to AARNet since June 2003. ACT information technology infrastructure is managed centrally, by InTACT. Joining the PoCN should have been, and was, a matter of course for CIT. However, because of South Australia’s restrictions on the type of connectivity and VPN had to be established. This meant substantial unanticipated work and it was difficult to schedule given the demands already on InTACT. They

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
