Fiber Optic Master Planning

City of Pico Rivera, CA

Pico Rivera’s new leadership team identified multiple projects underway in the city that were only loosely tied together but which represented a significant opportunity to create a smart platform for future development with a fiber optic master plan. The City was pursuing the municipalization of its street lights through a Community Choice Aggregation initiative with Southern California Edison. As a significant commuter community with major transit routes, it also recognized that the coordination of signals was a crucial next step for the community.

The plan for Pico Rivera is to develop a Fiber Optic Master Plan which will help the city control its destiny by deploying a converged network and connected infrastructure model for future development. Not only will the infrastructure be designed, but the community plans to leverage grant funding to de-risk fiber optic deployment through the creative use of HSIP grants to help deploy the network at a deep discount to a fully-city-funded buildout. The master plan is also evaluating community satisfaction with existing broadband services; documenting current infrastructure and provider options and developing a staged approach for fiber optic and Smart City application deployment.
