RICHARDSON, TX — Fujitsu Network Communications finalized a design, construction, operations and maintenance agreement with Traverse City Light & Power (TCL&P) to help expand their fiber broadband network. As part of a new fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) broadband initiative, the public power utility will build out coverage to bring affordable, ultra-fast internet and IP phone services to Traverse City, Michigan.

The utility currently delivers dark fiber services to a number of businesses and community anchor institutions, giving them a low-cost solution enabled by a recent substation modernization. As part of a strategic goal to bring high-speed fiber broadband connectivity to the region’s businesses, public facilities and residents, TCL&P is investing in an expansion of their existing infrastructure to offer these services throughout the community.

As the prime network integrator, Fujitsu will oversee and lead the entire FTTP broadband project including engineering design, integration, network construction, service installation, interoperability and testing. Fujitsu also will hire and establish a local operations team to manage the business operations and provide customer care services. The new gigabit fiber network will be maintained by Fujitsu’s 24x7 network operations center based in Richardson, Texas. Construction will begin this month, and the utility expects to start offering service to approximately 2,000 of its customers during the spring of 2020.
