| The city of Andover recently announced that it has finished installation of a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) that provides eight locations within the metropolitan internet access on a single, private network. This installation and buildout was carried out by the local PixPro Elite Force, a brand of Pixius Communications headquartered in Wichita.
The installation involved eight locations including the city hall, police & fire station, three wastewater plants, Andover lodge, streets department and parks maintenance building. Andover’s MAN will be proactively managed by PixPro Elite Force 24/7 allowing for continuous use by all city services.
“The city has propelled itself into the 21st century with this installation,” said Craig Brown, IT Director for the City of Andover. “By making this move, we will be able to serve the city of Andover even better through a continuous, private point-to-point network.”
By having a MAN installed, the city of Andover can now have all municipal locations connected to one cohesive network. This will allow for individuals in different locations to pull files as needed, push patches & virus control and reduce the amount of “sneakernet” which required individuals to physically take files to other locations.
“We’re so excited to add this to our city.” said Ben Lawrence, Mayor of the City of Andover. “The installation went off smoothly and within a short time the city has already seen more efficient work happening.”
