County officials say it would upgrade 911 communications, allow the county to network wirelessly from building to building and allow businesses to videoconference across the country without leaving their offices. And while the idea is only entering a feasibility and design phase, it also could eliminate in-county long-distance calls. President Commissioner P.J. Stevens said this would give the county a [Synchronous Optical Network], providing wireless teleconferencing, data, voice and video communication. The project would lower the county’s communications costs, provide new revenue and serve as an economic development tool by making the county a more high-tech, attractive place to do business, Commisioner believes. It would enhance Internet access options in residential areas. The feasibility study is expected to take three to six months and is only phase one of a multi-step plan.
