Smithville Telecom expands enterprise service offerings,
new Smithville Business Advantage supports small business

Large-scale Smithville enterprise operations serve life-science, healthcare, technology parks & research facilities, universities, major non-profits; multi-speed gigabit connectivity matches or exceeds Google-level fiber transmission capacity


ELLETTSVILLE, Indiana – Fiber-based Gigabit connectivity, managed services, network/dark-fiber management, redundant fiber ring construction and maintenance, data, IPTV, and digital voice, telemedicine, videoconferencing, and more now make up the full spectrum of services and platforms offered by Smithville Telecom.

“Over the past decade we’ve steadily expanded our enterprise-level services to include global multi-national companies, major life sciences and biotech, large-scale research and technology facilities, hospitals, clinics, universities, colleges and school districts,” said Cullen McCarty, president of Smithville Telecom. (Smithville Telecom was previously known as Smithville Digital).

“We have built what is likely Indiana’s largest private network with several fiber rings that produce a very high level of reliability and protect customers from costly and productivity-sapping down time,” McCarty continued. Always-on automated sensors closely monitor network capacity and enable Smithville engineers to quickly resolve any issues.

Smithville Telecom maintains a 24-hour-ready technical staff to serve large-scale enterprise customers at any time, day or night, according to Todd May, director of sales. The company also maintains two fully operational Network Operations Centers (NOC) for added security of mission-critical hardware redundancy.

A new small-to-medium-sized (SME) business offering called the Smithville Business Advantage is available to customers who don’t require 24-hour high-maintenance capacity and/or lower levels of fiber service.
The company’s Web site (now at digital.smithville.net), which is presently undergoing a major revision, will soon reflect new services and pricing, according to May.

“Smithville Telecom has provided great service over the past decade or so, and we believe that the best is yet to come,” said McCarty. “While we can now offer incredibly fast Big Pipe data services at up to a full 10 gigabits of fiber connectivity, the day is not far off when that capacity will increase to 100 gigabits.”
