HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN, a leading provider of next-generation open networking solutions, today announced the City of Tybee Island, Ga., is utilizing ADTRAN's ProCloud Subscription Services that bundle enterprise network infrastructure and cloud-managed services as a simple monthly expense.

As a barrier island off the coast of Savannah, Georgia, the city has become a tourist destination with upwards of 50,000 visitors descending upon the community every weekend. Working with ADTRAN's managed service provider partner Speros, the City of Tybee Island rents its network as a service, offloading switch management and day-to-day network maintenance activities while enabling the city's IT department to affordably keep up with data-rich demands on the network.

"Our island has quickly grown into a very popular tourist destination, and we need the network backbone necessary to support thousands of users on a daily basis. As a small IT department, we required a complete infrastructure and managed service that could help offload the management of our switches, while also providing a cost-effective solution to meet the needs for everyone on the island," said Todd Smith, information technology director for The City of Tybee Island. "An ADTRAN network as a service offers us a really powerful infrastructure and arms us with the capacity we'll need to grow for the future, all without the headache of traditional capital expenditures. And by working with Speros, we can operate like a large IT department without having to add any more staff, while remaining confident in our ability to keep up with the network demands of tourists, city officials and vital public safety services."

Whether it is high network traffic demand during the peak tourism season or a natural disaster, the City of Tybee Island needed a service that could be accessed anywhere in the case of an emergency. ADTRAN's ProCloud Subscription Services provides the platform for Speros to manage and maintain all of the city's installed switches, creating a holistic view of the network and alleviating pressure on the city's IT department. Additionally, the city's network will be able to support more mobile devices from tourists and the vital applications for local police and EMS units that are critical to the city government's infrastructure, including IP cameras, traffic monitoring systems and license plate readers. By empowering the City of Tybee Island with constant connectivity throughout the island, ADTRAN has ensured the city's ability to respond to any situation that may arise.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
