The process that Catonsville Community College (Maryland) went through in moving from a copper to a fiber network is outlined. The discussion addresses the following: describing the need in real terms; building consensus for the project; gaining support by college management; justifying the need for consultant support; writing the request for proposal (RFP) for the consultant; working with the consultant and generating a final report; preparing an RFP for fiber installation and evaluating responses to the RFP; selecting the vendor(s); installation/integration; and possible synergy for the future. As background, general information is provided on the college and on computer services staffing. Computing and data communications capability at the beginning of the project is outlined. Problems with the initial system and capabilities are identified. Fifteen future campus data communications needs are listed. Nine project cautions are offered with respect to future data communications scenarios. The paper concludes with a list of future uses of the new network suggested by industry developments. (MAS)
