    Data Center Connectivity:

  • More government services are moving online as the world grows more remote. Government agencies are rapidly adopting cloud-based services and solutions to modernize IT efforts.

    Public safety, parks and recreation, municipal health services and beyond need to be secure and easily accessed by residents wherever and whenever needed.

    Communities are reaping the benefits of government agencies mobilizing IT capabilities designed for today and tomorrow. Here’s how:

    1. Healthcare – Fiber networks increase the ability to use electronic medical records and wireless medical devices, offering the capacity to collect and analyze large amounts of patient information.
    2. Public Safety – Fiber-optic networks can help first responders communicate better with each other during emergencies through the use of public safety wireless communication devices.
    3. Energy – Smart Grid technology, enabled by fiber networks, provides real-time energy consumption data, which increases opportunities in energy conservation.
    4. Government Performance – Fiber networks support e-government services and applications, which gives government agencies more opportunities to communicate with their constituents.
    5. Education – Fiber network solutions enable better access to the internet and enhanced instruction through remote learning and online resources.
    6. Transportation – Fiber-optic networks can help alleviate congestion, enhancing road safety with real-time visibility to traffic signals and systems.
    7. Economic Development – Fiber-optic networks help communities attract, retain and empower job creation by encouraging business growth and expansion into new markets. Those who do not have robust access to the internet are at a disadvantage in the academic arena and the increasingly competitive labor market.
    8. Workforce Development – Broadband and Ethernet solutions enable access to customized career training. This is a far better method than traditional training, reaching more people with greater flexibility — and at a lower cost.
