Staff

The skills and experience of Design Nine staff and consultants includes hands-on management of community broadband networks, the design and implementation of both fiber and wireless systems, and ongoing network operations. Our staff capabilities go far beyond the engineering and specification of the physical network. Our staff will also work with your project to identify the appropriate organizational and legal structure needed to support and sustain the project long after the build out phase. We also have financial analysts and a wide variety of business modeling tools that will help assemble the business case your project needs to obtain grants, borrow money, or work with your financing sources.

Our senior staff have been involved with community broadband since the early eighties--longer than any other firm in the United States. Community broadband systems require specialized designs and specialized business and legal planning. Design Nine specializes in community broadband design, and can help manage your project from early phase planning through construction, testing, and operations.
