Optimum Lightpath Unveils Products for Government

  • Carrier Ethernet
JERICHO, NYOptimum Lightpath, a division of Cablevision that provides fiber- and Ethernet-based communications for businesses in the New York metropolitan area, announced the availability of its Optimum Lightpath Government Services Suite.

The new suite helps local governments pursue new opportunities, such as implementing telework programs; using collaboration to improve efficiencies for judicial, human services, police and other departments; attracting new companies and jobs; supporting local programs for residents; cutting telecommunications costs and more. The suite also helps local government entities adapt to changing requirements related to disaster preparedness, homeland security and transportation management. Optimum Lightpath supports these needs by providing a range of voice and data products that are fast, secure, scalable and reliable.

Products available in the Optimum Lightpath Government Services Suite include:

- E-Line. Layer 2, dedicated point-to-point data service, to support single or multiple applications that do not require a pre-set amount of bandwidth.
- V-Line. Layer 2 point-to-point data service that utilizes a single Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC) to transmit information between locations.
- E-Link. Data solution that extends connectivity from an Optimum Lightpath customer’s primary location to smaller, remote offices.
- Internet Voice Bundle. Provides Internet access with ability to terminate voice traffic from traditional or IP PBX to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) over a dedicated Ethernet service.
- Toll Free. Switched or dedicated toll-free services.
- Conference Bundle. Includes audio and Web conferencing in a single service with flexible packages.

"Police departments and municipalities are becoming extremely tech reliant, so when something goes down, there's a panic," says Eric Wilsusen, police captain and director of communications for Jefferson Township, N.J. Jefferson Township is one of several local governments in the New York metro area that use Optimum Lightpath’s services, along with Wayne Township in New Jersey and Westchester County in New York.

“Local governments have unique telecommunications needs given the important role they play in serving their residents and businesses,” explains Julia McGrath, senior vice president of marketing and business development. “The Optimum Lightpath Government Services Suite was built with this fundamental understanding and provides the flexible, cost-effective and powerful services that help our customers in the government sector advance.”
