  • Explore opportunities to expand the existing Metro Public WiFi footprint to incorporate additional Metro government locations to include more and broader Metro parks coverage, at housing authority facilities, and all Metro customer service sites beyond those presently served.

Solution Two

  • Partner with Vanderbilt and other universities to join USIgnite and establish a 100 gigabit internet pipe that will enable opportunities for development of a community application ecosystem that explores and utilizes the possibilities of massive bandwidth.

Solution Tree

  • Using the Broadband Plan developed by Metro Government as a guide, design and deploy extension of the current Metro-owned fiber infrastructure to support current and potential infrastructure projects.Pilot a conversion of standard street lighting to smart and connected LED-based street lighting to explore Metro network opportunities to integrate sensors to provide WiFi mesh and operational and data support of other Metro programs, in addition to reducing energy consumption.
