Description: A competitive bidding process will begin in the third quarter of 2016 for ABA's secondary WAN services and potential SIP services. The ABA secondary WAN consists of 3 legs – Chicago, DC, Andover Mass. The WAN supports all data and voice communications between the three aforementioned locations.

Critical requirements in the design of any new WAN submissions involve high degrees of performance in the areas of latency, jitter and packet loss. Quality of voice service is also of extreme importance.

A bandwidth minimum of 1G will be required for each leg of this design. A Network Performance Evaluation must be completed successfully before ABA will take final possession of any potential circuit.
