The City of Clermont FL Selects Magellan Advisors to Enable World Class Connectivity Within its Community
Clermont, FL, Nov 20, 2017 The City of Clermont, FL has selected Magellan Advisors to be its Telecommunications Consulting Partner, as it looks to begin transformative community-wide initiatives, which include a digital, connected-city vision. Magellan Advisors' team of broadband and smart city planning experts will support all broadband and WiFi planning, telecommunications design and engineering, construction management, and information security and IT management related initiatives.
Magellan Advisors, the nation's leading broadband, smart city, and IT management consulting firm, will assist the City in planning for incremental expansion of its broadband infrastructure assets. Municipalities across the globe are investing in fiber and wireless infrastructure to reduce cost, drive innovation, enhance economic development, and improve the quality of life of their citizens. The City of Clermont has been redefined over the last few years and is undertaking major community development projects that will positively affect the City for decades to come. The City has attracted a growing tech industry, which demands world-class connectivity.
Clermont's Information Technology Director Donald Dennis says, "Both our current and future residents and our visitors want continuous connectivity. This will allow them to be just as connected here as they explore our city as they would be in the comfort of their own home."¯
The City realizes that high-speed, next generation broadband and telecommunications services is a fundamental necessity to supporting these endeavors and fortunately, the City had the foresight to begin making these investments years ago. Over a decade ago, the City began installing spare conduit¯ throughout the City as it undertook water main expansion projects. In 2014, Magellan Advisors managed the deployment of the City's fiber network which now routes through major thoroughfares and connects government sites and facilities throughout the City. Magellan Advisors assisted the City through all phases of design and construction, ensuring that the City's network was built to industry specifications and on budget.
The City is now ready to expand the network's use, incorporating new wireless amenities in its bustling downtown. Through the Florida Lambda Rail, the City will bring access to high-speed research and education networks to the community.
The City is incorporating technology and telecommunications into its planning efforts across the City as it realizes
that the community's connectivity needs are growing every year. Magellan Advisors continues to support the City's needs with a team of subject matter experts specializing in deployment of broadband, smart city and wireless technologies.
