Our Skagit County facilities are located in Mount Vernon, WA. These facilities are our main location for fiber and wireless distribution in Skagit County. This facility is uplinked direct to the Westin building over OC-3 facilities. CSS partnered with the City of Mount Vernon to deliver Private access to the Mount Vernon Fiber Network.
The Fiber Optics are important to Mt Vernon because fiber facilities create community value by increasing the communication capabilities in the area. These communications include data, voice, and video. Fiber bandwidth gives the users the ability to be in more than one place at a time, reduce turnaround times, and increase clarity of information. The progression from telegraph, to telephone, to fax, to the Internet has proven these services are important for business, as well as personal use. Businesses can utilize the network to join remote offices and telecommuters together as though they were in one location. The fiber network was deployed to connect Schools, Municipal buildings (Fire, Police, Emergency Services), and major medical facilities. This reduces expenditures of public funds for voice and data services.
Beyond the public services, private services are being deployed through a partnership with CSS. CSS has implemented equipment to provision high speed services to the private sector at no cost to the municipal entities. Multi-Megabit communications and Internet access will help businesses grow and operate more efficiently. Your business can use the Internet to improve communications, research products, obtain information from suppliers, perform on-line orders, check shipments, and communicate rapidly with customers.
If your business is a branch office of a larger company, or you are a telecommuter that drives to the metropolis every day, the network can be used to provide high speed connectivity to the main office.
Current services available include high speed Internet (IP) access, and private Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) services. The network is designed to handle data, voice and video services. CSS has deployed the equipment required to deliver Internet services and VLAN access.
Wireless data equipment is being installed at several locations throughout the area to extend the reach of the network and provide direct access to the fiber ring. Fiber Services are available now!
CSS is planning further expansion areas, and developing private systems, interested parties should call as soon as possible to discuss. CSS is documenting location requiests and will deploy to a location as services allow access. Landlords, Property Owners and developers should investigate direct connection to the system and consolidation of facilities for their multi-tenant proerties.
CSS has deployed a high speed Interlink between Whatcom and Skagit County!
The Mt. Vernon Fiber Optic Network is a long term investment in the community and your support is crucial to building the network to it's fullest potential!
