City of Topeka and Shawnee County to share city's fiber network

"For $77,994, the county will be given the use of 18 strands of the cable for high-speed communications and computer data transmission among the courthouse, the Adult Detention Facility, the Law Enforcement Center and the Appraiser's office in the county annex in north Topeka. The contract is for five years."

News report

[Note: Fiber Planners did not design this network, but we have done similar systems for other communities. Linking courthouses with jails and juvenile detention centers significantly reduces both the cost and hazard of transporting prisoners to and from legal proceedings with armed guards; many proceedings can then be handled remotely over video]
