Ames Community School District Fiber Ring

< Back to projects

Client: City of Ames
Location: City of Ames

POWER performed field engineering and design for a fiber ring to connect the City of Ames’s school district campuses and administration buildings.  The city is about 24 square miles with a population of about 62K.  The project connected 9 campuses total.  The project required connecting the client’s existing fiber in key locations with newly designed fiber to provide a 50MB to 100MB service ring to the school district’s buildings.  A total of 5.5 miles of new fiber was placed.  We worked directly with the school district to assess the equipment and fiber entrance requirements for each building. The fiber routes required permitting with the city, county, and state. The success of this project was widely recognized throughout the community.
