Free public Wi-Fi was expanded into downtown Kings Mountain. This was part of the greater Streetscape project by the City.
Free public Wi-Fi was installed in the Kings Mountain Patriots Park. This in addition to other upgrades to the park have created a great place for our citizens to enjoy.
The IT Department had a wireless network installed for the Moss Lake camp ground and we took the opportunity to also add web cameras for both the Moss Lake Dam and the Osprey nest at Moss Lake. The Osprey camera continues to be a huge success and is enjoyed by many.
The IT Department successfully designed, installed, and fully tested a 911 Backup PSAP plan for the Kings Mountain Police Department 911 center.
Fiber Optic Network Installation (2012)
A fiber optic loop was installed in Kings Mountain that is owned and operated by The City. This project was a collaboration between the Energy Services Department and the Information Technology Department to reduce The Cities cost in providing communication between city buildings and utility infrastructure. It has not only reduced cost but also allowed us to operate at a much higher speed and with a higher availability.
The city now offers leasing of our surplus "dark fibers" to our industrial and commercial customers. A "dark fiber" is one that does not provide any service, only a high speed highway for connectivity. Dark fiber can be used for building to building connectivity, last mile (referring to the portion of the telecommunications network chain that physically reaches from the carrier to the customer premises), or even to connect to our newest offering, off-site rack space in our data center.
We have installed an extremely reliable fiber network that we are excited to offer to our large businesses and industrial customers. For more information or questions regarding leasing any dark fibers in our area, please call and ask for the Energy Services Director or the Information Technology Director. Please see our Energy Services page for photos, contact information, and additional information about this project.
The IT Department designed and constructed a Primary and Secondary NOC to facilitate city fiber optic access panels, network equipment, city servers, SCADA systems, and radio equipment.
