thousands of subscribers rely on every day for their Internet access.
The Core's hardware collection includes
Cisco 7200-series routers, Cisco AS-5300 and AS-5200 Access Servers
for dial-up modem and ISDN service, Catalyst 5000-series switches,
Sun Ultra 5, Ultra 10, Enterprise 250, and Enterprise 450 servers,
mission-specific equipment from a number of vendors, and
proprietary systems designed by BrightNet Oklahoma Research and Development.

In addition to on-line emergency battery backup and generator power,
each individual electrical outlet
(and right now, there are over 48 of them) can be
switched off and back on by off-site remote control, allowing even the most stubborn

off and on again) -- for the fastest possible response to
any problems that develop, even when engineers aren't on site.
So what's all this look like? That's what you're seeing, above, if
you're running Internet Explorer 5.0.
We installed two 24x7 live webcams in the new server core... so we can keep an eye on it, and give you a view
as well. Note that you will need to "reload" this page -- the webcams are
providing live, one minute shots.
