The Polish city of Elblag has chosen Cisco’s Borderless Network solution to build a municipal broadband network. Elblag is a port city in northern Poland with more than 120,000 inhabitants and access to the Baltic Sea.
A next-generation multiservice Internet Protocol (IP) network with 120 kilometres (75 miles) of optical fiber will connect local government offices, schools, nurseries, libraries and other municipal institutions. Elblag’s citizens and visitors will have access to eight Wi-Fi outdoor hot spots, as well as 20 public internet access points, free of charge. The municipal network will also be connected to the regional broadband network of eastern Poland.
Based on the new infrastructure, users will be able to access information and resources via multiple access methods — both wired and wireless — as well as various services, including data, voice and video, enabled by the network.
