Annex C: ICT Infrastructure Cost Details A. Introduction

Basic ICT VSAT/ Center site

This section provides more detailed information about the assumptions used to create ICT infrastructure estimates. Cost information about hardware costs for ICT Centers, Minilabs, and SD Stations is included, along with cost information for Internet connectivity.

B. Phase 1 Hardware Costs & Deployment ICT Centers in TEIs. Deployment of 8 ICT Centers in Teacher Education Institutes will include both pre-service and in-service TEIs in Jayapura and at DIKPORA Papua Multicampus teacher colleges. The cost estimate for these deployments is as follows: Basic ICT VSAT/ Center site ICT Center cost (8 est) $ 20,000

Solar Unit Power/site cost

$ 3,000 $ 5,000

$ 28,000

ICT Centers in SMAs. Deployment of 60 ICT Centers, locations determined by DIKNAS. Deployment planning should include standardization of ICT Center configurations (hardware, software, networking), plus tendering of contracts for hardware, solar power and connectivity, and installation/supervision. The cost estimate for this 60-school deployment is:22

ICT Stations in SDs. All schools will be in accessible locations in or near Kota Jayapura and possibly another location, such as Timika. Schools will be “clustered” so as to explore the possibilities for inter-school communication and establishment of informal “communities of practice.” Deployment planning entails: standardizing the SD configuration; tendering the SD “Station” and installation/ supervision. The cost estimate is: Basic VSAT / Solar ICT Site Power ICT Station (Tier 1 and Tier 2) · $800

C. Phase 2 Hardware Costs & Deployment Phase 2 involves deployment of ICT Minilabs (smaller than ICT Centers) to the remaining secondary schools in Papua (SMAs and SMKs), and to accessible SMPs, with continued roll-out of SD Stations to accessible SDs. A pilot test of SD Stations in 30 remote SDs will also begin.

Complete information about the PMPTK block grants has yet to be acquired. For estimation purposes, six laptops and one server are priced at US $6,000; one VSAT terminal at $2,000 (leaving some additional budget for site improvements and installation, solar power (not necessary in every ICT Center) is reduced by a $2,000 estimate contribution for “electrical supply” from PMPTK.
