Fujitsu Network Communications has won a contract from the Fort Pierce Utilities Authority (FPUA) to plan, design and deploy a broadband network expansion on the Florida coast.
Fujitsu’s role as broadband network integrator includes providing market analysis, financial/ business modeling, engineering design, deployment and overall project management for the Lincoln Park project.
The project is slated to be completed in phases, with initial service turn-up expected in early 2022. This network infrastructure has also been designed to support the future deployment of wireless technology, including public Wi-Fi in several areas, said Greg Manganello, senior vice president and head of wireless and service solutions, Fujitsu Network Communications.
“We are making a vital investment in digital equity for one of our community’s most underserved neighborhoods,” said Jason Mittler, FPUAnet manager, Fort Pierce Utilities Authority. “We trust in Fujitsu’s experience and vendor-neutral approach to help us successfully roll-out this project.”
