Cornerstone Awarded City of Franklin Project

According to Cornerstone co-owner and CTO, Philip Tillman, “Our team has designed and worked with ISP’s (Internet Service Providers), municipalities and other large organizations on similar-scale projects so we are glad to bring our experience to the City of Franklin.  We enjoy working with the City staff and are excited to see the project completed and performing well for the community.”

The Franklin Municipal FiberNET Operations Department will offer two service packages once the network is fully operational.  The first will appeal to larger industry and round-the-clock operations by providing network maintenance, monitoring, trouble-shootings, and resolutions through its 24x7x365 NOC.  The second will cater to small business by providing monitoring and maintenance service during normal business hours.

David Smith, Cornerstone co-owner and CEO said, “The City of Franklin is really distinguishing itself as an economic development competitor for recruiting and retaining industry by investing in this fiber project.  We are proud to partner with the City to further advance our region’s technology infrastructure.”

Tillman continued, “At Cornerstone, we believe technical expertise and customer service are critical to building and maintaining long-term client relationships.  This is another great opportunity for us as a company and we appreciate Jeremy Pogue, Senior Network Specialist, who worked diligently to secure this project.”
