KCI provided turnkey design, build, fiber placement, splicing, terminating, testing, maintenance and locate services for approximately 150 miles of new 216SM ribbon backbone fiber optic cable, and 24SM and 12SM strand laterals for more than 150 lateral sites for the Harford County Metro Area Network (HMAN).
By being involved in the front-end design of the network, our team was able to build the network well within budget, allowing the county to use that money to connect additional sites.

The HMAN consolidates all communication networks over a private high-speed network, making improved services available to Harford County’s business community and other non-government entities. The system consists of 140 anchor institutions including schools, fire stations, police stations, libraries, DPW facilities and municipal buildings; and four backbone rings (core and rings 1-3). The majority of the construction is new underground conduit. KCI has performed 110 miles of directional drilling and 500 feet of aerial construction.
