  Network Capacity & Streaming

19.1 BSN and the Customer will agree on the amount of capacity required for service and the best way to meet that need, whether through utilization of dedicated or shared capacity.  Various quality of service  arrangements, including a Committed Information Rate , are available that correspond to Customer™s needs and will be mutually agreed to with BSN. 

19.1.1 Dedicated capacity means that the Customer sites are served on satellite capacity which is reserved for that customer.

19.1.2 Shared capacity, means that the Customer sites are served on satellite capacity which is shared with other users and sites. Every attempt is made by BSN to insure compatibility among the various users of the capacity and from time to time capacity will be added and sites may be moved at BSN™s option in order to maintain a balanced system.


19.2Streaming means a continuous use of a channel (either outbound or inbound) in excess of BSN predetermined limits of time. The time limit depends on the streaming data rate as a percent of the maximum channel rate. The following table gives the time limits as a function of data rate:


Continuous use by one site

Maximum time allowed

Example based on 2 Mbps channel rate

50 percent or more of the channel speed

5 minutes

Over 1 Mbps

25 to 50 percent

10 minutes

> 500 kbps and < 1 Mbps

10 to 25 percent

20 minutes

> 200 kbps and < 500 kbps

5 to 10 percent

30 minutes

> 100 kbps and < 200 kbps

Under 5 percent

No limit


Customer™s usage of the channel may vary from time to time.  BSN may not enforce the above limits when overall traffic is light.  During heavy traffic, however, BSN reserves the right to rate limit customers who exceed the above limits.
