OMAHA, Neb. (PRWEB) May 02, 2011
G4S Technology LLC (formerly Adesta), a systems integrator and project management company for communication networks and electronic security systems, has been selected to design and install a 660 mile fiber optic backbone and distribution network for Slic Network Solution’s fiber-to-the-home deployment in St. Lawrence County, New York. The $15.5M project commenced in December of 2010, and is projected to be completed in the fall of 2013.
Slic Network Solutions specializes in delivering Internet, Voice and IPTV services to businesses and residential customers in St Lawrence and Franklin Counties in upstate New York. In a multi-year expansion process, Slic Network Solutions is investing in these communities by installing high-speed telecommunications network infrastructure.
As the prime contractor for this project, G4S Technology will design the outside plant network, manage the make-ready process with the applicable pole owners and construct the backbone and distribution network. This project is part of two awards that have been received by Slic Network Solutions through the Broadband Initiatives Program (BIP) headed by USDA/RUS. This particular award phase will expand the current Slic network’s critical infrastructure to deliver advanced broadband services to almost 5,900 households, 112 business and 30 anchor institutions in 16 townships throughout St. Lawrence County, New York, where currently only 17% of the homes passed by the proposed 660 mile network have high speed Internet access.
“G4S Technology is excited to be working with Slic Network Solutions to help open the homes and businesses of their customers to the enhanced services that fiber-to-the-home can provide,” said Bob Sommerfeld, President of G4S Technology. “Our design and construction experience will enable Slic to maximize the benefits of the BIP funding they have received. This network will definitely propel these communities into a bright, prosperous future.”
“Working with G4S has enabled us to focus on serving our customers and growing our business,” said Phil Wagschal President and General Manager of Slic Network Solutions. “Their experience with network design and construction gives us the confidence that we will have the facilities to serve our community well into the future.”
