  • Cumberland Electric Membership Cooperative (CEMC)

KANSAS CITY, MO — Tennessee-based Cumberland Electric Membership Cooperative (CEMC) has partnered with Conexon to deploy a FTTH network spanning five counties to serve 100 percent of the co-op’s members. Conexon has been selected to serve as CEMC’s strategic partner for the overall project in a construction management and fiber design role.

Cumberland Connect

CEMC is partnering with Conexon for its broadband deployment and, with nearly 100,000 meters, it is one of the largest electric cooperatives to move forward with a fiber-to-the-home project. Under the auspices of a newly-formed subsidiary, Cumberland Connect, the co-op launched the six-year, $197 million project in early summer 2019. Cumberland Connect’s FTTH network will encompass over 5,000 miles and offer high-speed internet, phone and TV services to all its members.

Conexon will design Cumberland Connect’s network using its Rural Fiber Distribution Design Platform. This completely customizable technology enables Conexon to design the co-op’s entire network quickly, efficiently and accurately, and position it to accommodate for growth. Conexon will also serve in the construction management role, provide marketing and customer service training support and help the co-op in securing available state and federal broadband funding.
