Smart communities:

  • Empower local government employees to collaborate in person or virtually.
  • Promote communication and teamwork.

With symmetrical 100% fiber internet, everyone wins. Equal upload and download speeds mean video streaming, uploading files, web conferencing, screen sharing and more are always top quality.

Trust, Transparency, Transformation

When Atlantech Online started building fiber rings in dense business districts within Montgomery County, MD, local government technical personnel saw that through public/private partnership that their fiber optic network could reach more stakeholders. Network managers knew it was the wave of the future for industry and government to work together. Atlantech’s metro fiber network positioned the community for the future by:

  • Digitially connecting many buildings across the region.
  • Transporting voice services over an IP network.
  • Continuing to support legacy voice services such as blue light phones, fax and security lines.
  • Relieving strain on SLED technical budgets by augmenting personnel available to manage the data and voice networks as well as network security.

Cities and educational institutions within the community network footprint could leverage Atlantech IP connectivity for public Wi-Fi and dedicated internet access to relevant stakeholders. Instead of each entity fending for itself, the community as a whole has been able to access fast, reliable access and voice services, and Atlantech Online has been proud to support it.

With Atlantech Online you’ll find a refreshing lack of red tape.
