Twin Valley Chooses ADTRAN to Deliver Gigabit Service to Smart Rural Communities

  • Twin Valley/ISG
HUNTSVILLE, AL — Twin Valley, a Miltonvale, Kansas-based communications service provider, is proactively investing in the future of its service areas by deploying the ADTRAN Gigabit broadband platform. Twin Valley and the city of Clay Center, Kan., are now part of an elite, rapidly growing group of communities around the country turning to ultra-fast broadband to stay economically competitive in today’s data driven economy.

Through its significant investment into the telecommunications infrastructure, Twin Valley is preparing to deliver gigabit speeds to Clay Center residents and businesses in the fall of 2015. As a result, Twin Valley customers, including hospitality, education and manufacturing industries, can build upon their existing business operations by effectively supporting both current and emerging high bandwidth, low-latency applications and services.

Investing in the People and Future of Clay Center

“The delivery of gigabit is a game changer in that it will allow for significant economic growth opportunities. The ultra-fast speeds will help businesses expand in the community, as well as attract new companies to our area,” said Lori Huber, director for Clay County Economic Development Group. “Twin Valley saw an opportunity to build upon their Smart Rural Community designation and has run with it. Gigabit broadband is more than an economic investment in the broadband infrastructure for Twin Valley – it’s an investment in the people and future of Clay Center.”

“Next-generation broadband, specifically gigabit, is an essential infrastructure component to our community. In fact, when talking about Clay Center, I always mention the ‘big three’ elements—our reverse osmosis water system, our own power plant to ensure reliable energy, and the fact that we have an advanced fiber broadband from Twin Valley,” said Jimmy Thatcher, Clay Center City Mayor.

Fostering Innovative Economic Development through Advanced Broadband Networks
As a Smart Rural Community, Twin Valley has worked aggressively to foster innovative economic development, commerce, education and public services use through advanced broadband networks. Business customers, particularly in the manufacturing industry, are already reaping the benefits of high-speed broadband, and will continue to do so with the advanced Gigabit services.

A local third-generation family farm is using ultra-fast broadband connectivity for monitoring activities and equipment throughout the farm with Twin Valley’s infrastructure. By enabling even faster speeds, the farm will be able to simplify operations more through expanding its remote access to equipment, ultimately increasing efficiency of labor and resources.

Another locally-owned grain manufacturer has been able to streamline business operations with increased speeds from Twin Valley. Having recently developed an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system for processing production orders company-wide, inventory and sales orders can remain in sync across divisions.
