Design Nine can provide comparative analyses of various last mile architectures, including fiber, WiFi, WiMax, satellite, DSL, and cable modem services. This is often a place where community projects can get bogged down trying to sort out competing vendor claims, and we will help you make the right decisions for your basic network architecture.
We can identify middle mile backbone needs, design a regional fiber, wireless, or fiber/wireless hybrid backbone network, and include complete pre-engineering cost estimates.
Our broadband planning work for last mile fiber and wireless network designs typically includes:
We use a team approach to the network design, and bring experienced engineering and construction firms into the design effort early in the process. Whenever possible, we prefer to partner with local firms to keep jobs and payroll in the community, and local fiber and wireless contractors can bring valuable knowledge of local conditions to the design effort.
