Lewes & Sussex DE Select Conxx
The project will be managed by the Lewes Board of Public Utilities which serves the area’s water, sewer and electric services.
Conxx is also supporting the Environmental Services Division of Sussex County by engineering and installing licensed microwave links that span the southern part of this near sea level region.
While the initial target in Lewes is to integrate automatic meter reading for those customers, the goal is eventually providing residential and business users with an alternative choice for high speed broadband.
This region-wide upgrade better connects county wastewater treatment plant operation centers to towers and pumping stations. Pumping control is regarded as critical in sea level communities
The initial scope for the Lewes project will be to enable automatic meter reading capability that will improve efficiency, enable leak detection and reduce costs for the utility. Public WiFi access, business and residential broadband and security video backhaul and waster and sewer SCADA data will also converge onto the network. The state’s recent investment in long haul fiber optic cable to the Lewes outskirts will be leveraged to provide options for broadband service and private data connectivity.
