    The network configuration is designed for redundancy, reliability, and scalability using CONXX’s patented EtherCell™ technology. It is designed to support the transport of several broadband technologies with the flexibility to layer in a variety of last-mile technologies to meet the needs and requirements of the network. It supports the data network transportation needs for Lackawanna County including providing a backbone network for SCADA, automatic meter reading and other utility infrastructure support, Wi-Fi, mobile and secure data and video communication.

    The multi-service architecture allows a large variety of critical applications to run simultaneously across a common network infrastructure.

    This ability to “layer on” applications greatly reduces the capital outlays for additional solutions and substantially reduces ongoing management and operational costs.

    Optimizing traffic signal timing is considered a low-cost, high-benefit approach to reducing congestion. Signal timing strategies include the minimization of stops, delays, fuel consumption and air pollution emissions and the maximization of the traffic progression through the system.



    Lighting the way for a brighter future


    In planning and development since 2009, the Lackawanna County Wireless Initiative has become an example of what county governments can achieve to reduce the burden of increasing expenses and move into the future of advanced technology by offering the county secure and encrypted networks, VoIP, wireless surveillance video, Wi-Fi, and network management products.

    Lackawanna County’s 911 center, Courts, Prison, and government operations all require secure, high capacity network technology. By utilizing the Lackawanna County Wireless network, Lackawanna County has the security, speed, and capacity required to meet the demands of today’s services, and have the technology and capabilities to meet the needs of tomorrow.

    Lackawanna County’s government operations footprint is small on a network of this size, therefore excess network resources can serve other municipal governments, medical organizations, businesses, schools, and business development organizations with superior connectivity and networking resources through a robust, secure network. These are just some of the ways Lackawanna County Wireless Initiative is bringing tomorrow’s ideas to you today.

    Welcome to the beginning of the future of advanced technology in Lackawanna County!
