We often say OneNet’s network is the most advanced in the state. That statement is more than just promotional messaging. OneNet’s world-class network is both fast and efficient thanks to several advanced technologies, including a gigabit network, content delivery networks and worldwide connections.
As I think of the priorities OneNet faces as the state’s internet service provider, what keeps me up most at night is cybersecurity. Securing our network, from OneNet’s core network right up to our customers’ networks, is a top priority for OneNet’s leadership and engineering team.
When we meet new customers or other organizations, we often discover that they do not know who OneNet is or they think we are a commercial internet service provider. Times like this give us an opportunity to share the story of OneNet and the value we bring to our state.
Research in Oklahoma requires huge data connections to allow researchers to transmit and receive data for projects they’re collaborating on with other researchers around the globe. Only OneNet’s dedicated high-speed network can power these world class initiatives.
Looking back to OneNet’s beginnings in 1996, not only has technology advanced, but OneNet has transformed from a network designed to carry video transmissions to a network that supports big data movement around the globe. Take a look back with us at the growth of the network over the last 20 years.
As OneNet celebrates our 20th anniversary in 2016, we’re taking a look back at our history and how far we’ve come today. A vital component of that history and OneNet’s success has been our partnership with higher education.
As OneNet celebrates its 20th anniversary, OneNet Executive Director Von Royal reflects on 20 years of innovation, empowerment and advancing technology across Oklahoma.
Since OneNet’s beginnings, our service model has been built on public-private partnerships. These partnerships have been instrumental in delivering broadband services to research, education, health care and public service communities across the state.
One of the greatest technological challenges Oklahoma’s schools face is limited access to the bandwidth necessary to support today’s digital learning initiatives. OneNet is dedicated to leveling the playing field for students and teachers in rural areas and is continually seeking ways to make high-speed connections possible.
