Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) Circuit
DC30 Monthly, per MAN (Metropolitan Area Network) Circuit
The DC30 rate is applicable to Agency locations connected to the Frankfort fiber ring. The Kentucky Information Highway is a statewide telecommunications and information network developed by Kentucky state government. The backbone that supports the KIH provides resiliency/fault tolerance within the network, as well as increased security by virtually segmenting the MAN based on Agency/Dept. needs. The KIH is managed by the Commonwealth Office of Technology Network Operations Branch, which is responsible for the design, implementation, and support of the KIH infrastructure. The core of the KIH network is located at the Commonwealth Data Center and is comprised of multiple enterprise and carrier class switches connected by Gigabit Ethernet. It is extended to the Frankfort Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) fiber optic ring.
