TROY, Mich. — Waveform Technology, a leading Metro Detroit area commercial data
center operator and Internet service provider, is now supplying fiber optic Internet
access to Macomb County. The new connection serves both Macomb’s 2,500 County
Employees and MACnet, the county’s own private network, by providing redundancy to
the current Internet circuit.
Macomb County is among the first customers to connect to a recently constructed
expansion of Waveform Technology’s southeast Michigan fiber optic network.
Macomb County chose Waveform Technology for numerous reasons, but primarily because
Waveform’s metropolitan fiber optic network provides complete path redundancy from
the county’s primary Internet connection. “Owning our own network allowed us to
meet the specific route stipulations that Macomb Country required,” said Waveform
Technology representative Noel Montales. “It provides us more flexibility than
other ISPs that are just reselling local phone company assets.”
Price was also an important consideration, and Waveform’s independent network allows
for Internet connections, and other metropolitan data services, for a fraction of
the cost that other carriers charge.
Waveform Technology provisioned a 100Mbps fiber optic Metro Ethernet circuit for
Macomb County. Metro Ethernet was chosen for its versatility and simplicity of
Macomb County continually invests in telecommunication infrastructure, both to
attract businesses and to streamline county and local government activities.
MACnet, Macomb County’s fiber optic network, connects fifty-three separate county
government buildings, as well as many school districts and city halls.
