The City of Glendale, CA contacted Successful.com to assess the needs of Glendale’s government and diverse constituents for a highspeed wireless network. The process of workshops, interviews, surveys and analysis concluded with recommendations to the City for moving forward with a municipal broadband network.
A primary objective was to determine the direct or indirect financial impact of the respective City department’s use of a municipal broadband network. This served as the basis for proposing practical business models for the network.
Another objective was to identify potential business partners that could be co-anchor tenants on the network, or in some other relationship help the City offset some of the network costs. Potential partners also were evaluated for their ability to contribute in some way to the network’s technology requirements.
Tasks and deliverables for this project included:
