Despite the PDF title this is intended to give a sense of costs to bring network tech to support the meetings - as conveyed perhaps by the subject of the email.

>>    [pwd] The benefit of Remote Participation Services extends beyond that to remote participants.  Meetecho is an integral part of the NOC as they also record all of the working groups, plenary and related official IETF sessions.  There is a lot that goes into remote participation support including managing the remote queue to raise hands and inject video and audio into the room.  They also monitor the integrated Jabber room.  They work with the NOC as a team.
> Let me try again, it’s not part of NOC Support, it’s part of IETF meeting support.   The title of this sheet is “NOC Expenses”.   Even if we were to find a different way provide a network at IETF meetings (for example, use the hotel network), we would still need to provide these meeting services.  It’s not a NOC expense.

This isn’t necessarily to suggest a need to make cuts – so please do **NOT** interpret it in that way! Rather, it is to give a sense of what the costs really are for accommodating our requirements; our direct costs. The indirect costs may be thought of as venues that cannot accommodate our requirements (so Alexa may have some sense of that in advance of the BoF).
