City of Peculiar Embraces a Connected Future with Comcast Business

By

According to a recent announcement, Comcast Business and the City of Peculiar, Missouri have teamed up to enhance the city’s broadband connectivity with the goal of improving and streamlining government service operations and better serve the citizenry.

Comcast Business reportedly will equip all City of Peculiar buildings and facilities with unified communications infrastructure, including point-to-point fiber connectivity, Wide Area Network (WAN) and scalable Internet Access. The company said that this will get the data rates up to 10 Gigabits/second.

“Serving Peculiar residents to the best of our ability today -- and tomorrow -- is our top priority,” said Brad Ratliff, City Administrator, City of Peculiar. “Our partnership with Comcast Business is another step towards that goal. This upgraded communications technology increases our ability to meet the needs of Peculiar residents today, and prepares our city for a vibrant, growing future by attracting new businesses and enhancing economic growth.”

Peculiar now will become one of the first Smart Cities in Missouri to use Comcast technology, and will give city staff better tools for monitoring and maintaining key infrastructure, while improving efficiency and reducing costs, the release said. Furthermore, the city plans to leverage the new connectivity infrastructure to scale communications capacity as municipal operations grow and demand increases.

“We look forward to working side-by-side with the City of Peculiar to deliver world class internet service technologies,” said Kalyn Hove, Vice President, Comcast Business. “Aided by these customized solutions, city leaders can leverage innovative technologies to help improve processes and operations for residents.”
