Building the Broadband Infrastructure of Tomorrow Through Ownership of Open Application Networks For Your Community
Lit’s open application fiber optic networks are engineered with capacity to support consumer and business broadband, phone, and TV services, as well as ultra low latency connectivity dependent smart city and public safety applications, and wireless backhaul and transport sufficient to support the needs of coming 5G deployments.
Our networks are built from the highest quality materials, made by world class OEMs. From the advanced network electronics, to the fiber optic cables themselves, our partnerships with the manufacturers and distributors allow for precise cost and schedule forecasting.
Our innovative approach to network deployment doesn’t stop with our planning, design, and funding strategies, but extends to construction approaches as well. From micro trenching to utilizing existing water pipes as fiber ducts, we explore every possible approach from a value engineering perspective, and find the best companies in the world to partner with.
Our networks support an ecosystem of service providers with a track record of success offering services over third party owned network infrastructure. We also foster relationships with providers of connectivity dependent services like telehealth, home security and automation. We provide customers connected to our networks with an “app store” like experience wherein they can select ala carte offerings from a variety of options.
Operate & Maintain
Our best in class operational partners constantly monitor the network 24 hours a day, and not only provide around the clock customer call support, but immediately dispatch the appropriate repair crews as soon as the Network Operation Center identifies an issue, which is very often before the customers even realize there is one. Outages impacting more than a few customers on the network are rendered impossible by ring configured redundant path architecture. Lit Communities therefore provides 99.999% guaranteed uptime Service Level Agreements for business customers of the network.
Be Smart From The Start
Lit Communities’ networks are designed from the ground up with capacity to support all manner of connectivity dependent smart city and public safety applications. We work with local municipal leaders from day one as key project stakeholders, so they understand the beneficial impacts our networks can have in their communities, and can begin planning to leverage them for the communities’ benefit.
