Everybody Learns WiFi Initiative
CEN is helping Governor Lamont bridge the digital divide by bringing free outdoor public Wi-Fi to eligible towns and locations across the state as part of the $43.5 Million ‘Everybody Learns’ Initiative.
DDoS Fast-Flood Enhancement
Fast-Flood detection reduces the time for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) detection and mitigation. The service also provides alerts when attacks start and a summary report when the attack is over.
Hub Site Upgrades
Replace and update the distribution layer devices on the network. More dense hub sites will receive new devices capable of 100/400 Gig. Less dense sites will receive new devices capable of Nx100 Gig.
