Gaylord UCMAN In Its Eighth Year
May 10, 2009
Gaylord, MI – The University Center Metropolitan Area Network (UCMAN) is a partnership of Otsego County government, Gaylord Community Schools and the University Center at Gaylord. The network provides locally owned and controlled Internet connectivity for voice and data.
Using a mix of underground fiber and wireless transport, the network was built originally to connect county government, the courts, schools and the University Center. However, soon after launch in 2005—at the request of local businesses and advisors—UCMAN was opened for general availability and to date the network is providing more than thirty Gaylord area businesses with broadband Internet services. UCMAN has also established wireless hot spots at Glen’s Market, the University Center (interior and exterior) and throughout the central downtown business district of this historic northern Michigan community.
Gaslight Media is UCMAN's Internet service and technology provider.
