The fiber-optic network as expected will be faster and enable more efficient communications and operations among fire, police, park, water, transportation, and other city facilities.

AT&T will upgrade the city and county’s wide-area network from its current copper composition to an advanced, cost-effective, optic fiber-based OPT-E-MAN network as per the agreement

AT&T OPT-E-MAN, the company’s fully managed switched metro Ethernet service will accelerate communications among all 46 city and county locations with data transfer rates ranging from 5 Mbps to 1 Gbps.

This system is designed to accommodate future growth and advanced technologies. The fiber-optic network will provide greater operational efficiency and communication among the various city departments and operations.
