Waveform Technology, a 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.

MAY 3, 2010 -- Waveform Technology, a 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 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," says Waveform Technology representative Noel Montales.

Price was also an important consideration, and Waveform's independent network allows for Internet connections, and other metropolitan data services, for a lower cost than 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 design.

Macomb County invests in telecommunication infrastructure to attract businesses and to streamline county and local government activities. MACnet, Macomb County's fiber-optic network, connects 53 separate county government buildings, as well as many school districts and city halls.
