Subject RE: BayWEB - Project Description and Executive Summary

As we discuss the solution within our documentation, is important that we talk about our middle mile solution as a single network with two sub-systems as represented below:

The BayWEB project will feature a vibrant middle mile network deployed at 193 unique radio sites across ten Bay Area Counties. Motorola's network deployment will include both a wireless broadband sub-system for public safety and government users based on Long Term Evolution (LTE) standards and a Public Access sub-system utilizing unlicensed 5.2, 5.4, and 5.8 GHz spectrum and a broadband Point-to-Multipoint and Point-to-Point solution to improve public broadband Internet access for community anchor institutions and residents.

In addition to this paragraph, I have made some edits to the attached executive summary that represents this change in tone. We will need to ensure that the rest of our documentation takes on the same tone as we discuss the solution.

Thanks Travis

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

While one of the country's most culturally diverse and aesthetically beautiful areas, the San Francisco Bay area confronts significant public sefety-challenges. Susceptible to eartbg_u..akes, coastal flooding threats, and wildfires, the Bi_lv Area is also one of the highest risk areas t()l- terrorism attacks. [n addition, these ten counties consist of dense urban, suburb<U1, and very rural areas that are challenging f()f broadband providers to serve. This area also has been hard hit by the CUITent economic clisis with an unemployment rate in excess of 13%. Various communities in the Bav Area are economically distressed, and others lack any access to broadband. The Bay Area ifi susceptible to earthquakeEi, coastal flooding threats, and wildfires and it; one of the highest risk areas for terrorism-attaeks.

Currently, emergency responders compete with the general public for bandwidth, and public safety's ability to respond adequately using existing broadband networks is often hampered during normal daily operations, such as a multi-car accident on an area highway, let alone during a major natural disaster. To address these challenges, the Bay Area requiresArea requires a state-of-the-art, interoperable public !,afety network which provides Broadband access to both, Public Safety, for emergency responders and public access for community anchor institutions and residents. This network will fulfill the Bay brea's need of a vibrant middle mile broadband solution that broadband providers can utilize to offer affordable broadband service to public safety, communitv anchor institutions and end user customers.

In addition, the Bay Area consists of dense urban, rmburban, and very mral m-eas that are challenging tc)r broadband providem to llerve. TIle area also has been hard hit by the cun-ent economic crisis with an unemp+oyment rate in excess of 13%. Variowl communities in the Bay Area are economically distresGed, and others lack any access to broadbm1d. The Bay Area needs a vibrant MiddJe Mile broadband net\vork that broadband providers can utilize to otter affordable broadband tiep/ice to community anchor institutions and end llser customers.

The Bay Area Wireless Enhanced Broadband (BayWEB) project wHl-directly address this complex bo-th-sets of problems. In partnership with public safety entities in the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo, San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Santa Cruz, and Santa Clara, Califomia.j-and-multiple local wireless broadband providers, and Verizon, Motorola proposes to build and operate BayWEB, which is a vibrant Middle Mile broadband network that will serve the entire ten-county Bay Area. This area spans 7,368 square miles, which is larger than the majority of states, has a population in excess of 7 million people living in more than 100 cities and towns, and is visited by nearly 15 million tourists annually.

The BayWEB project will feature a vibrant middle mile network deployed at 193 unique radio sites acro5s ten Bav Area Counties.hvo compol1tmts. Fimt Motorola witll\:10torola's network deployment will include both deploy a wireless broadbandsubnetwork svstem for public safety and government users based on Long Term Evolution

(LTE) standards and a PubliS; Access sub-svstem utilizing unlicensed 5.2. 5.4. and 5.8 GHz spectrum and a broadband Point-tn-Multipoint and Point-to-Point solution to improve public broadband Intemet access t()r community anchor institutions and resident~.

Theis LTE sub-private netvlOrksystem will enlarge the interoperability of public safety communications across the region and enable emergency responders to have broadband access to mission critical information utilizing 700 MHz spectrum, which will improve the delivery of health and safety services to millions of California residents. The system is scalable to accommodate public safety networks throughout California and can serve as a model for future public safety broadband build outs throughout the United States. Through an arrangement with Verizon Wireless, the project also will permit emergency responders to enjoy broadband and public safety communications access when they are outside the proposed funded service area.

Second. MotorolaThe Public Access sub-system will will deploy a iv1iddle Mile net'.vork throughout the Bay Area utilizinge unlicensed 5.2, 5.4, and 5.8 GHz spectrum and a broadband Point-to-Multipoint and Point-to-Point solution te-will improve public broadband Internet access. It will spur faster and more affordable broadband service to

anchor institutions, community colleges, and millions of end users,

including an estimated __ households and __ businesses. This public broadband network will be completely open, and all local broadband providers will be able to interconnect at anyone of __ interconnection points. Motorola has entered into arrangements with established wireless broadband providers - [INSERT NAMES] - that have committed to using the network to expand the availability of affordable wireless broadband service throughout the Bay Area.

Motorola is extremely qualified to deploy and operate the proposed middle mile network. Motorola is a global communications leader that has been providing communications solutions for more than 80 years. Through other public-private partnerships, Motorola has established similar public safety networks worldwide, including the State of Calif()lTIia South Carolina Palmetto 800, State of Illinois, Austria TETRON Nationwide, Denmark Dansk Beredeskabs Kommunikation (DBK) Nationwide TETRA Managed Service, Australia MMR Victoria, and Ireland Nationwide TETRA Managed Service.

The public-private partnership between Motorola and public safety entitiesits partners in the Bay Area is critical to the success and sustainability of BayWEB. This partnership is embodied in an executed teaming agreement between Motorola and the Policy Board of the Bay Area Regional Interoperability Communications System (BayRICS), under the executive sponsorship of Sheriff Greg Ahern, the regional mutual aid coordinator for the Bay Area. The BayRICS Policy Board will work with Motorola to address quality of service, access, interoperability, policy, and system management issues for the BayWEB project.

The BayWEB project is "shovel ready" because it will leverage existing BayRICS facilities. In 2007, the Bay Area embarked upon BayRICS in order to improve

interoperable communications throughout the ten counties which comprise the Bay Area Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI). The program involves a multi-jurisdiction and multi-disciplinary approach to interoperability, and includes communications capabilities for first responders and public safety professionals, as well as all other government services including public works, transportation agencies, and critical infrastructure organizations. BayRICS includes land mobile radio for voice interoperability, an interoperable information sharing strategy, and a robust ten county microwave network for backhaul. In addition, the BayArea VASI has obtained approximately $6 million in federal funding for limited public safety broadband build out.

However, the completion of the BayWEB project is wholly dependent upon Motorola's securing funding under the Comprehensive Community Infrastructure Program. This funding will permit Motorola to utilize !}1e 193 existing tower sites and other infrastructure to deploy~_a state-of-the-art. middle mile network that will: (i) ~ safety network that \>",ill give first responders access to wireless broadband services, dynamic multimedia applications, and increased interoperability of voice and data services, and dynamic multimedia applications; and (ii) a vibrant rvfiddle Mile broadband network that 'Nill giveenable broadband providers access to the facilitie~; necessary to deliver affordable wireless broadband service to community anchor institutions, community colleges, and end user customers.

System Design Narrative

Task: Describe the system design used to deliver the broadband service. Address and provide sufficient detail for a review to evaluate the soundness of the design.

• Discuss the key network components, from end-users to the network's primary Internet Point(s) of Presence (POP)-noting which network components already exist and which would be addressed by the proposed project.

• For wireless access, state the frequency, how much spectrum is available, technology used, morphology of the area, topology of the area, power levels at the user devices, whether or not mobile.

• Specific advantages for using this particular technology strategy, taking into account service offering capacity, speed, reliability, and cost effectiveness.

• Paths to upgrade the system and add additional capabilities in the future.

• Describe the proposed network's centralized facilities and points of interconnection.

Narrative Response (6000 Character Limit):

The BayWEB project features a vibrant middle mile network deployed at 193 unique radio sites across ten Bay Area Counties. The network will include both a mobile wireless broadband sub system for public safety and government users based on Long Term Evolution (L TE) standardized equipment and a public access sub-system utilizing a fixed broadband Point-to-Multipoint and Point-to-Point solution to improve public broadband Internet access for community anchor institutions and residents.

L TE Sub-System: The L TE sub-system will operate on 700 MHz frequencies allocated for public safety mobile broadband networks. The relevant components are as follows:

L TE Radio Access Network (RAN): The L TE RAN consists of base stations, antennae systems, and ancillary equipment that will be deployed at 193 existing radio sites now in use by the participating Bay Area counties. Each radio site will include an "L TE eNodeB" base station that allows users to access the network and provides an average pf200 Khps throughput in the uplink direction and 768 Kbps of throughput in the do\Vn.lin~:dir~i2~._i\IIIcm~.eCJ~ijJlTl~Ilt\Villb~. funded by the BTOP grant.

Backhaul and Distribution Network: The network will leverage existing sites and microwave or optical fiber networks to connect public safety and government locations and users to the L TE EPC (see below). Existing backhaullinks connect to the BayLoop microwave network Point of Presence (POP) sites which is connected to the Alameda County Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Additional point-to-point links will be added where necessary. Where existing backhaullinks are not available or lack the necessary capacity, Motorola will install licensed microwave point-to-point stations to backhaul L TE traffic to the EPC at the Alameda County EOC. The microwave network utilize licensed frequencies in the 6,11, 18, and 23 GHz bands and will be funded by the BTOP grant.

L TE Evolved Packet Core (EPC): The EPC connects public safety first responders and government users with government enterprise networks and external networks. The EPC provides various features such as Quality of Service (QoS), security, and device authentication. The LTE EPC will be located at the Alameda County EOC and second EPC will be installed at a different location for redundancy and enhanced disasterresilieacei 'All comp()nents of the EPC will be

Public Access Sub-System:

The Public Access sub-system will utilize unlicensed spectrum to provide broadband Point-to-Multipoint and Point-to-Point Internet access for community anchor institutions and ~esident~. [Th~ sub-system consists of Point-to-Multipoint (PMP) Access Point Clusters at each of the L TE sub-system radio sites in the vicinity of qualifying community anchor institutions as well as unserved and underserved communities. From each PMP Access Point Cluster, an unlicensed Point-to-Point (PTP) backhaul network links to the BayLoop POP sites. Each BayLoop POP site acts as an interconnection point to which partnering WISPs can connect their respective NOCs. Partnering WISPs can also deploy PMP subscriber modules at community anchor institutions or underserved communities and access the PMP Access Point Clusters to connect back to their respective NOCs. The following components of the public access sub-system are funded by the BTOP grant:

• PMP Access Point Clusters

• k:luster Management Moduld,

• Ancillary networking equipment

• PTP backhaul radios

Frequency Spectrum for Wireless Users:

The L TE sub-system will operate on 700 MHz frequencies allocated for public safety mobile broadband use. The BayRICS Policy Group has ~equeste~FCC approval to use the available 10 MHz (763-7681793-798 MHz) for this network. We expect the FCC staff to act on this request by mid summer of 20 1 O.

The public access system operates on unlicensed frequencies in the 5 GHz band.

The microwave backhaul component utilizes FCC-licensed frequencies in the 6, 11, 18, and 23 GHz bands. Most of the necessary links are now licensed and operational.

Advantages for proposed system:

The BayWEB Project offers the following advantages for the participating Bay Area Counties:

• Cost effective shovel ready approach leveraging existing assets.

• State of the art L TE broadband network to improve public safety first responder effectiveness and enhanced disaster 'responsd, .

• Broadband interoperability for Bay area agencies.

• High capacity unlicensed middle mile solution with open access for multiple WISPs.

• Flexible design for middle mile access with ability to add capacity and coverage as needed.

Future Network Upgrades:

• BayWeb is based on 3GPP LTE standards and will support further channel profiles of 1.25,3,5, 10, and 20 MHz depending on spectrum availability.

• The L TE sub-system is scalable to include other 700 MHz broadband spectrum to increase capacity.

• When necessary, additional sites can be added to the system to improve coverage or capacity.

• The coverage footprint of the public access sub-system can be extended by adding PMP access point clusters at additional sites as necessary. Capacity can be further improved by placing multiple clusters where required.

Subject Re: BTOP Application Update - March 17, 2010

Michael,

Thanks for the feedback. The 500+ page estimate is an average size of the round one reviews that Jeff Blau did for BTOP. I agree that those sections that you listed are extremely important. The group is sending out drafts as they are completed and the sections of interest you listed have not been circulated. The partners will be working over the weekend and right up to the March 23rd date to complete some of these sections. When we receive the complete draft of the entire proposal, you will be able to concentrate on sections you feel are most important.

For the meeting on March 24th, the session will be to finalize the application for submission for Friday, March 26th. After submission, we can schedule for the partner to come out and present the proposal at a high level. That is all the information I have for now. I may have new information as we get closer to the 23rd. If I receive the sections you are interested in prior to the 23rd, I will send them to you. If you have questions, you can contact me or Heather.

Thank you for the update Clement. If the application will be as large as you suspect (500+) pages, and we will have a 24 hour timeframe for review it is not realistic to expect that participants are even going to be able to quickly skim it, let alone read it.

I recognize the tight timeline; however, I believe that we need to find a way to provide participants with copies of selected sections earlier than March 23rd to allow for a reasonable review and discussion on the 24th, even if they are still drafts.

In particular I think that it is important that we be able to see the sections that will speak to the following topics:

• The business case and cost estimates for system sustainment and estimated user fees.

• The explanation of the level of coverage and capacity that is being proposed for the system and how that would compare to today's commercial networks that most of the agencies are currently using.

• Sections that speak to any usage of the proposed system by non-public safety entities.

I'd like to have the time to read the entire proposal, but it looks like that will not be possible, so at a minimum we should try to find a way to ensure that we cover the most important aspects of it in our discussion on the 24th. Other partners may have additional high importance issues that they would like to see added to the three above. Can you provide us with advance information regarding the above critical aspects of the proposal? How do you plan to present information on the 24th? Mike.

Subject Re: BTOP Application Update - March 17,2010

Laura,

Heather and I discussed it this afternoon. The truth is even we don't have the documents yet. We will get the entire document March 23rd like everyone else and the meeting on the 24th is for receiving feedback and not for presenting. Because of the tight deadline, our partner doesn't have time to stop everything they're doing and present to our group. We are all receiving the same information at the same time. If he wants to participate, it will be in the same quick and hurried fashion we've been doing it since day one. He'll get it sooner rather than later that this process is not going to be slowed down by or for him. We'll approach it honestly and kindly. I'll work on a draft response and pass it through Heather before I send it out. I guess the comment about it being 500+ pages scared him. We can always have the partner come back after its in and present to our group. We just don't have the time now.

RE: Is there an executive summary available yet for the BTOP App?

Thank you Heather.

Can you tell me if the narrative towards the end of the grant program description section, beginning with "With Round 2, Public Safety is considered ... " is an excerpt from some grant guidance? We have not seen this definition of an underserved community and we are wondering what it is based on.

Also, can you please explain how we feel that 1867 new jobs will be created as a result of this grant being awarded? That seems a very high figure to us and we would like to understand the logic.

Thanks. Mike.

Is there an executive summary available yet for the BTOP App?

Heather - I just fielded another call from a Congressional staffer asking

for a copy of the BTOP application or an executive summary. They appear hesitant to provide a letter of endorsement without the ability to see anything in writing. I explained that it is still a work in progress and

that the team's goal is to include these letters with the application

rather than asking for them to be sent in after the application is submitted. They said that they would let us know soon if their protocols will allow them to provide a letter now, without seeing what the application is. I tried to answer what questions I could about the

effort. Mike.

FACT SHEET

Bay Area Wireless Enhanced Broadband (SA YWEB) BTOP Grant Application

Funding Program: BTOP Grant (ARRA stimulus funded grant program) currently open until March 26, 20 I 0

Grant Program Description: This NTIA grant program's purpose is to both stimulate jobs and promote broadband services to unserved and underserved communities including public safety. Funding is released in "rounds" with specific criteria around infrastructure eligibility and applicant eligibility. We are currently in Round 2 and Public Safety is "eligible" to apply as an individual applicant or as part of a public private partnership. Over 90% of awards announced for Round 1, have been to private sector firms or telecommunications firms to promote broadband in rural communities. With Round 2, Public Safety is considered an underserved community due to limited speed (required for public safety applications), and no resiliency within current broadband networks commercially provided in the Bay Area. It is important that Public Safety have the bandwidth and resiliency required to remain operational during a natural or human generated disaster.

Amount Requested: $130M

Jobs Created: 1867 With BTOP funding, new jobs are expected to be located in Bay Area (Sunnyvale) and San Diego.

BA YWES Partners: The BA YWEB network is a shared mutual aid system or asset. Bay Area public safety members will share this asset (as with our BAYLOOP Microwave network) and govern and maintain the system through the BA YRICS Policy Group. The executive sponsor of this initiative is Sheriff Greg Ahem, the regional coordinator for mutual aid in the sixteen bay area counties. Participants in BA YWEB include the counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Marin, Sonoma, Solano and Napa. The cities within the listed counties will participate as members of their BA YRICS systems and operational area for mutual aid. This initiative is being supported by all of the Bay Area Sheriffs, major Fire Districts and the public safety community including the Northern California Fusion Center.

Description of Project to be funded: The Bay Area Public Safety Agencies and specific anchor institutions in the commercial banking, health, and education sectors are partnering with Motorola and Verizon to build a resilient, hardened broadband network for Public Safety agencies in the Bay Area. This network, BA YWEB, is a subsystem of the regional Public Safety interoperable communications strategy, BA YRICS. The design of the network with utilize public safety bandwidth within the 700MHz for Public Safety users and unlicensed spectrum for non-public safety users (for key institutions or sectors requiring resiliency) to build a mission critical broadband network. This resilient network will be designed to provide day to day interoperability for public safety users and a partitioned segment will provide resilient broadband for key institutions critical to the recovery efforts after a disaster. This resilient network will leverage existing public safety and public assets that have been funded with Homeland Security and other federal grants to enhance BA YRICS or public safety interoperability in the Bay Area.

The full grant amount to complete the Bay Area network is being requested. This amount is in line with the grant guidelines for this program. It is the preference ofNTIA to fully fund "shovel ready" projects rather than fund "phases" of networks.

Our private sector partner, Motorola, was selected through a competitive process. Motorola is serving as the grantee and assuming all fiscal risk with this project including the provision of a 30% match. The Bay Area public safety agencies, with the current economic conditions and public budget deficits, could not provide the 30% match nor afford the fiscal risk of a reimbursement grant for $150M.

We request your support for this pioneering, innovative design and business model. This grant funding provides a significant and once in a lifetime opportunity to complete this broadband project that will provide the resilency required for an effective response and recovery from the inevitable seismic event.

Motorola is embarking on a true public-private partnership to simultaneously

serve public safety's vitally important needs and offer wireless broadband service to users

throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. On the public safety side, the Alameda County

Sheriffs Office is acting as Executive Sponsor for the Policy Group of the Bay Area

Regional Interoperability Communications System ("BayRICS"), partnering with

Motorola to ensure that BayWEB is fully responsive to the needs of public safety entities

in its ten member counties. The Northern California Regional Intelligence Center

("Fusion Center") will also be a key connected institution, using BayWE13 wftetl

fesj3BHdiflgtHfegionaldisa~tefs,-On the private side, Motorola is partnering with

wireless Internet service providers ("WISPs") to deploy broadband service to businesses

and individuals throughout the Bay Area. A partnership with Verizon ensures that

BayWEB users will be able to access the network even while roaming beyond the project

area. These partnerships allow BayWEB to meet more needs and reach more users than a

single organization could do on its own.

The BayRICS Policy Group is teaming up with Motorola to make Bay\l/EB (,

needs. During the life of the project, Motorola and the BayRICS Policy Group will

collaborate on quality of service, access, interoperability, policy, and system management

issues. The BayRICS Policy Group will facilitate site access and continuous use of the

"shovel ready" sites owned or leased by BayRICS participants, as well as provide all

necessary FCC licenses and temporary authorizations. Network "backhaul" to each

agreed site will also be provided by the BayRICS Policy Group. The BayRICS Policy

Group will give Motorola access to its microwave and radio voice system, which Motorola may expand. In return, the BayRICS Policy Group will receive Motorola's expertise in BayWEB's planning, implementation, and management. The BayRICS Policy Group's impact in this project cannot be overstated - it is a necessary piece to ensure that BayWEB fulfills the specific requirements of critical public safety entities.

The Fusion Center is another public BayWEB partner. The Fusion Center's network is designed to withstand threats that would disable other networks, making it an invaluable resource to banks and other institutions. Using the high speed capabilities of BayWEB's LTE 4G Broadband system, the Fusion Center will be able to provide a wide array of media to first responders, including real-time video, building blueprints, mapping information, and information sharing capabilities critical to terrorist attack prevention.

At a time when regional broadband communications have never been more essential, BayWEB will provide communications and information sharing capabilities with the capacity and reliability required to respond to a regional disaster.

Through strategic relationships with WISP's, BayWEB will expand last mile broadband service to unserved and economically distressed areas. The WISPs will provide broadband to end users, and enjoy in return BayWEB's increase of broadband capacity and backhaul options and facilitation of increased broadband coverage. GRe Wh'tPQllc0-VISP partner, Skyline Broadband Service, is a provider of high speed Internet access to unserved areas in San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties. Cal DSL, a residential and business broadband provider serving most areas of San Joaquin County, is another WISP partner. Partner Surfnet Communications also will be able to utilize BayWEB to expand provision of broadband wireless access for unserved or underserved

mountain and coastal communities. Other WISP partners include Internet Free Planet,

l Ol Netlink, [insert others here]. Most of the WISP partners are small businesses which will seize this opportunity to expand with Motorola's support. The impact of these WISP partnerships will be faster and more affordable broadband access to numerous individuals, businesses, and community anchor institutions.

Verizon is also an essential partner on the BayWEB team. Using its extensive existing network, Verizon will enable emergency responders and other users to enjoy broadband and public safety communications access even when outside the project area. Once funding is received, Motorola and the WISPs will also enter into additional agreements concerning connectivity of the network to the third party providers' networks in the region and roaming rights and responsibilities of network users. Verizon's partnership for roaming capabilities will positively impact BayWEB by granting users mobility beyond the project area. [Insert details about Verizon partnership].

Motorola is also in discussions with unaffiliated organizations in the project area on BayWEB planning and participation. Motorola continues to consult with community anchor institutions, including schools, medical and healthcare providers, community colleges, and other government facilities. Their input is valuable in BayWEB planning as many of these institutions will become BayWEB users. As discussed above, public safety entities from ten Bay Area counties are participating in BayWEB's planning and will also continue to be involved in operations. Through coordination with community anchor institutions, BayWEB will have an enormous impact on the region by deploying an interoperable public safety communications network and spurring growth of reliable and affordable wireless broadband access.
