A division of JKM Consulting, M2 Connections, seeks to promote the growth of businesses, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations with a focus on enhancements through technology.
In the rural, economically distressed east-central Alabama region that includes Calhoun, Talladega, Clay, and Randolph Counties, many valuable community organizations rely on slower, copper-based service for their Internet access, and some have no broadband service at all. JKM Consulting’s Project BEAR proposes to deploy a 176-mile fiber network that includes 88 miles of new fiber to provide high-speed, affordable broadband services and directly connect more than 40 community anchor institutions in the four-county region.
iGLASS Networks is proud to provide 24×7 monitoring and NOC support to the M2 Connections team in support of Project Bear. Our NOC engineers keep tabs on the performance of the fiber network around the clock, immediately notifying M2 staff when outages occur. We also provide an outage ticketing system, inbound phone support and detailed outage reporting.
