Project Design Assistance

  • Identifying all physical sites to be connected to the network including town owned towers or public works facilities if required.
  •  Reviewing existing CEN or PSDN facilities for possible connection points and potential cost savings.

Determining the desired service level:

  • Is wireless access desired in some or all town facilities?
