FairlawnGig® Main Fiber Ring Construction Begins Along Market Street

In the next few weeks, construction of the main FairlawnGig fiber ring will begin along Market Street. Crews will be out locating and marking utilities along the South side of Market Street. There are many existing utilities running underground along Market Street. Locating and marking these utility lines is essential, as it allows the FairlawnGig construction crews to avoid damaging existing utility infrastructure as they are installing the FairlawnGig conduit in the right-of-way. There will be many multi-colored flags in the grass on the side of the road, and painted symbols on the street and sidewalks.

Please don’t move the flags or alter the painted markings. The markings may look strange, but they are only temporary and are vital for the safety of our construction process. City of Fairlawn crews will remove the flags and markings after construction is complete and the FairlawnGig conduit is installed underground.

About the FairlawnGig® ONT

Advanced Networking Hardware. Included with your service for no additional charge. Awesome!

FairlawnGig ONT

The FairlawnGig ONT is included with residential service plans from FairlawnGig. The ONT hardware is part of the standard installation and there are no additional hardware fees. As long as you are using FairlawnGig Internet service, you can use the FairlawnGig ONT in your home. The City of Fairlawn will cover the standard installation cost for residents who sign up for service during the construction of the network.

FairlawnGig business customers will have a different ONT. Business connections over FairlawnGig use a different type of fiber connection, and businesses usually have their own well formed internal networks. FairlawnGig business installations will be customized to match the specific requirements of each business.

What’s an ONT?

FairlawnGig brings a gigabit fiber Internet connection to your house. The FairlawnGig ONT is the box that connects your house to FairlawnGig. The ONT replaces your cable modem or DSL gateway from your current Internet provider when you upgrade to FairlawnGig. ONT stands for Optical Network Termination. The FairlawnGig ONT completes the fiber connection to FairlawnGig and converts the optical signals to networking technologies that you already have in your home—Ethernet and Wi-Fi. The FairlawnGig ONT comes with an uninterrupted power supply which means that your Internet and phone service will stay on during a power outage.

The FairlawnGig ONT for residential service is the Calix 844G GigaCenter. It includes much more than the subscriber interface for the FairlawnGig fiber network. The GigaCenter has:

  • A four port gigabit Ethernet switch.
  • A home gateway and firewall.
  • Two telephone ports for optional phone service.
  • A state-of-the-art Wi-Fi Access Point.
