Silver Spring Innovation Center Wireless Project

In support of County Executive Ike Leggett's Ultra Montgomery plan, Atlantech Online along with Fibertower is setting up a Gigabit Ethernet connection between the Silver Spring Innovation Center and Atlantech's Silver Spring Data Center. The link called "UltraGig" will provide a wireless link using Fibertower's licensed spectrum in the 25 Ghz band. Tenants at the SSIC will then be able to access Internet and Telephone service from the Atlantech Online network or can establish point-to-point links to other sites, such as data centers, in the region. UltraGig will be the first link in the Ultra Montgomery plan and signifies the success of Mr. Leggett's public/private partnerships that help further economic development in Montgomery County.
