The end goal of the consulting work we do on behalf of communities around the country is the creation of a financially viable roadmap to an open application broadband network. Our consultancy therefore supports and informs our efforts on the infrastructure side of our business, where we invest in the construction and operation of open application networks.
We leverage our extensive industry experience with wide area network deployments, and our relationships with the best technology and OEM partners in the world, to determine highly accurate construction and material cost estimates. Our process for making this determination, which we call our Community Assessment Process, is born from decades of experience as design engineering vendors for tier one providers like AT&T, Verizon, and Google Fiber, married with the Gig City municipal broadband consultancy our executive team established with our previous employer, Foresite Group.
This background in both large private telecommunications projects as well as more community oriented broadband projects gives us a unique advantage. Our advantage is furthered even more by our ability and willingness to put together, and take part in, the capital stacks to fund projects identified as viable through the Community Assessment Process.
The Open Application model with which we operate our networks allows for multiple revenue streams unassociated with the traditional triple play of internet, phone, and tv services. We can therefore make viable business cases for fiber optic network deployments on behalf of communities whose incumbent providers cannot, and then actually make those networks a reality by building them ourselves.
