JULY 2009 RMAP BLOG – ENTRY 5

Friday, July 31st:

I attended a meeting of regional partners that have joined together to create an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act application for broadband.  RMAP is being joined by the IT Departments of cities and counties in the region that spans Winnebago, Boone & McHenry counties.  The group brings together the interests of municipal and county government, health care, education and transportation.  The technical team that is preparing the application is being led by Northern Illinois University’s Broadband Development Group.  As with many funding applications under the Recovery Act there is a Preliminary Application requirement to get a feel for the magnitude of projects being considered.  The State of Illinois is making matching funds available to the most worthy projects in the state.  I am happy to report that the Governor’s office has authorized $5 million dollars towards the regional broadband project.

The details of the broadband project are quite technical but the regional application is being termed a “middle mile” project.  This means that the project will not deliver broadband directly to the home (that would be a “last mile” project) but delivers broadband infrastructure to corridors and nodes that can be used to connect existing broadband components and services.  While it is beyond the space limits of the blog to discuss broadband in any great detail the regional project can be thought of a logical extension to the Northern Illinios Technology Triangle (NITT) that has been covered in the media in recent times.  The regional project can provide the fiber optic backbone components that allow economic development to occur (such as large data centers), allow law enforcement / homeland security agencies to communicate on a dedicated communications channel, and can provide the necessary communication path for intelligent transportation systems. cheap prozac for dogs what is i increase prozac to 100mg buy prednisone in mexico, visit our online store! discreet events buy prednisone without prescription australia · meetings 17 results – buy cheap generic fluoxetine online canadian pharmacy store! zoloft brand price. cheapest rates, buy zoloft online. online without prescription ». fluoxetine withdrawal symptoms, fluoxetine kips publication!, fluoxetine 40 mg daily, order prednisone no prescription.,  buy prozac online ireland generic prozac does not work generic prozac side effects. buy side effects
