Matrix helps communities, cooperatives, utilities, and municipalities empower people through fiber optic technology. Working together, we can implement a cost-effective fiber network that empowers a strong communications infrastructure and enables our country to compete in the world marketplace.
Make your community a more appealing place to live
It is inherently evident that, in the not too distant future, a gigabit (1 Gbps, or 1000 Mbps) will be the standard for both downstream and upstream links. Fiber To The Home (FTTH) can meet that growing demand for broadband services of tomorrow’s increased speeds.
Matrix Design Group understands the importance of providing Gigabit Broadband to communities and homes which is why we’re charging the way. We’re helping empower communities and cooperatives with budgeting, feasibility studies, planning, designing, building, managing and supporting the implementation of Fiber To The Home networks.
Let us provide you and your neighbors with an advanced communications network that promotes economic growth and development.
Attract, retain and grow businesses for improved economic development.
Municipal officials are keenly aware of the potential for using ultra-fast broadband to promote economic development and enhance the quality of life in their communities. Fiber To The Home (FTTH) is only one part of an economic development program. Evidence shows fiber optic broadband helps attract, retain and grow businesses. Matrix is dedicated to helping communities reap the benefits of a future proof, fiber optic network available to everyone in the country.
Community owned fiber networks are becoming an inevitable trend. When communities can’t get their incumbent providers to deliver fiber optic broadband services, the community has to come up with a plan to make sure their areas don’t get left behind. From community and municipally owned fiber networks to utility owned networks that provide the basis for smart grid and fiber to the home applications, we’re committed to helping provide fiber optic broadband.
Provide real-time monitoring and control of critical assets
Fiber plays a key role when viewing the Smart Grid as series of managed energy service applications that benefit power utility and consumer/enterprise customers. Distribution Automation and Automated Metering solutions will be the cornerstone applications for managing and measuring Home Area Networks (HAN), Demand Response and load management programs of in-home intelligent devices, appliances, renewable energy deployments and Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs). Broadband Providers and power utilities have a unique opportunity to learn about the solutions to help “monetize the network” driving revenue to and through the network.
Matrix can design and build a robust and reliable fiber-based communications network for Smart Grid infrastructures providing real-time monitoring and control of critical assets.
Provide secure and dedicated bandwidth connecting numerous agencies and departments
Matrix Design Group’s fiber optic services empower cities with high-speed, reliable networks that improve the ability to communicate and enhance the capability to share resources. It will help governments and communities to overcome obstacles such as:
- Connecting online resources and databases of city departments to share
knowledge among distanced locations.
- Upgrading facilities such as data centers to secure data recovery and
- Developing e-government services resulting in improved access for
citizens, increased efficiency, lower costs, and greater effectiveness.
Matrix can link your city with fiber optic connections to provide secure and dedicated bandwidth connecting numerous agencies and departments.
So whether it’s delivering unlimited bandwidth or decreasing costs, fiber is a viable option for any city that will not only improve your economic prosperity and business culture, but also enhance your government’s operating and financial efficiencies.
Deliver unlimited bandwidth and decrease the operational cost for your communication’s infrastructure
Most schools now have Internet access, thanks to the federal E-Rate program, but adequate school broadband is still rare. Fiber-connected schools; however, can enhance students’ educational opportunities.
The importance of number 2 pencils has been replaced by a more advanced need for broadband connectivity. Volumes of encyclopedias and research books have been replaced by computers with high-speed Internet access. Many educational institutions face major communications challenges that must be addressed in the near-term:
- Linking online resources and databases for increased distance learning and shared applications
- Upgrading networking facilities while decreasing local loop telecom costs
- Obtaining fast and reliable Internet connections
Whether it’s to deliver unlimited bandwidth or to decrease the operational cost for your communication’s infrastructure, educational institutions must continue to evaluate and implement new options. Matrix can help plan, design, build, and manage a network solution that will help you enhance the learning environment.
Transform the way patients receive healthcare
Fiber optics is transforming the way patients receive treatment, share medical information between providers and hospitals, remote ER visits with tele-ER, e-prescriptions, video training and many other applications. The speed of fiber communications between insurance companies, pharmacists, patients and medical staff at any physician’s office, clinic and hospital, will allow your time and attention to be dedicated where it should be – on your patients.
The current demands healthcare communications networks face include:
- Rise in health information exchanges, requiring network access to electronic medical records across multiple service providers
- Increased imaging capabilities driving the need for more flexible bandwidth •Growing use of remote applications networked to central services, connected to each other
- Growing use of remote applications networked to central services, connected to each other
- New regulations require comprehensive medical records, involving high intensity security across your entire health care network
Network infrastructure is the heartbeat of the healthcare industry, and in order to meet the demands of a complex and ever-changing health care environment, accurate and accessible records are critical to the health of patients and the efficiency of operations. Matrix will help evolve our healthcare industry to meet these growing demands.
