Rolling out a revolutionary 10 Gig enabled fiber city-wide network to connect over 150,000 people in the City of Rockford, Illinois, USA

Working in partnership with SiFi Networks, this project demanded the navigation of extreme weather risks such as tornados, snowstorms and flooding events, plus extensive historic architecture, to create a digitally futureproof, smart city enabled open access network.

NetPMD Design & Integration supplied end to end services from design through to delivering the active network elements within the city, including integration of components such as data centers, network aggregation shelters and streetside cabinets. This extensive fiber-optic infrastructure investment brings some of the fastest residential speeds available in the United States, generating huge digital transformation to the city’s residents and the local aerospace, healthcare and automotive industries.

Ben B, SiFi Networks said “We are delighted to be rolling out our citywide, full fiber, open access network in Rockford, providing the backbone of further economic development and improved quality of life for residents. NetPMD are a key partner in helping us deliver this vital project for the city, provisioning us with design, integration and project management services that have streamlined and accelerated our process”.

Mike Mason, CEO, NetPMD said “We are excited by the Rockford project and what it means to the community who will benefit from the new digital fiber infrastructure, once fully commissioned. Our team is extremely focused to ensure this project is delivered efficiently, in order that the active network infrastructure is ready for providers to serve Rockford’s connected customers.”
