Over time and particularly with the migration of key applications into the cloud, the County’s communication infrastructure needs to grow increasingly robust. ISD has undertaken a major countywide project over the last two years to do a significant upgrade to the County’s network infrastructure to increase the speed and reliability of the entire system and better support all of the County’s new applications, data, communication, and other uses. There is also a potential for other municipalities in the county to leverage the fiber backbone to improve connectivity for all public agencies.
