Clermont, FL Selects Magellan for Smart City Planning Initiative

  • Magellan Advisors
CLERMONT, FL — The city of Clermont, Florida, has selected Magellan Advisors, broadband, smart city, and IT management consulting firm, to be its telecommunications consulting partner, as it looks to begin community-wide initiatives, including a digital, connected-city vision. Magellan Advisors’ team of broadband and smart city planning experts will support all broadband and Wi-Fi planning, telecommunications design and engineering, construction management, and information security and IT management related initiatives.

Incremental Expansion of Broadband Infrastructure
Magellan Advisors will assist the city in planning for incremental expansion of its broadband infrastructure assets. Municipalities across the globe are investing in fiber and wireless infrastructure to reduce cost, drive innovation, enhance economic development, and improve the quality of life of their citizens. The City of Clermont has been redefined over the last few years and is undertaking major community development projects that will positively affect the city for decades to come. The vity has attracted a growing tech industry, which demands world-class connectivity.

“Both our current and future residents and our visitors want continuous connectivity," said Clermont’s Information Technology Director Donald Dennis. "This will allow them to be just as connected here as they explore our city as they would be in the comfort of their own home.”

Early Fiber Infrastructure Investments
The city realizes that high-speed, next generation broadband and telecommunications services is a fundamental necessity to supporting these endeavors — and began making these investments years ago. Over a decade ago, the city began installing “spare conduit” throughout the city as it undertook water main expansion projects. In 2014, Magellan Advisors managed the deployment of the city’s fiber network which now routes through major thoroughfares and connects government sites and facilities throughout the city. Magellan Advisors assisted the city through all phases of design and construction, ensuring that the city’s network was built to industry specifications and on budget.

Access to High-speed Research and Education Networks
The city is now ready to expand the network’s use, incorporating new wireless amenities in its bustling downtown, and through an agreement with the Florida LambdaRail, Clermont will bring access to high-speed research and education networks to the community. The City is incorporating technology and telecommunications into its planning efforts across the City as it realizes that the community’s connectivity needs are growing every year. Magellan Advisors continues to support the City’s needs with a team of subject matter experts specializing in deployment of broadband, smart city and wireless technologies.
