II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: Install Fiber Optic infrastructure.   
17. Project Justification: The Internet speeds at the Nevada State Railroad Museum are inadequate. Using an online Internet speed test from Google determined that the museum’s Internet connection downloaded data at a rate of 0.37 Mbps and uploaded data at rate of 1.30 Mbps. Google rates the speed of the museum’s Internet connection “very slow.” Downloading and transmitting large files can become a time consuming process. Multiply this by eleven staff members using the Internet connection at the museum and using the Internet can become a frustrating endeavor. In addition, with requirements to add additional programming via audio and video files over the Internet, the visitor experience may be affected. Museum staff consulted with AT&T about its Internet connection and a Fiber Based Ethernet Service with a 10 MB connection was recommended
18. Project Background Information: Prior to installing the Fiber Based Ethernet Service NSRM needs to place: A conduit path (suggested 4”) with mule tap from the 4’x5’ box on the south side of the property to the location where you want AT&T to place their Fiber Panel and associated Electronics Equipment; a 4’x4’x3/4” fire rate backboard where you want AT&T to place the equipment; a 120V 15Amp dedicated electrical outlet next to the new 4’x4’x3/4” backboard; and a #6 Building Ground with Bus Bar on the new 4’x4’x3/4” backboard
