lets have the institutions list these plans which will vary per institution and thus demand will be different. I a quest to avoid doing the work finding out exactly what our need is we are choosing to use population as a multiple.
university backbone infrastructure will need x resources because of ………
labs will need these resources ………..
halls of residence have this number of occupancy rate and will need ………
each student will be allowed one BOYD device with connectivity ………
what is so difficult to offer this information ?????
> Average wifi concurrency on a University I looked at recently was 3.2 per person, add the university infrastructure and lab pcs etc, you are running at a 5:1 or greater right there. This has nothing to do with a student having an IP for life, and I don't know how you come to that conclusion, dynamic ip assignments, if the population is on campus the IP's will be being used or you will run out of leases. Sorry, but your argument fails to hold up to technical scrutiny.
