The goals of the Kane Fiber network are to improve the services available in the county, improve the interoperability between various departments within the county, provide additional disaster
preparedness, and reduce the high costs associated with leasing facilities from communication carriers. As the network has evolved over the last 5 years, Kane County has formed public and
private partnerships with various providers. Within Kane County, organizations have received access to new services, which helped them reduce costs and increase network reliability. These
new services provided by our partners include Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) internet access, offsite storage capability, virtualization, cloud computing, co-location services, and metro Ethernet,
as well as many others. By promoting Kane's fiber network’s assets, the county is helping organizations within the county meet their technological needs today, tomorrow, and in the future.
