Our Solutions

NRTC’s technology focus starts with the members in mind — what they need, what solves their challenges, what will benefit them. More than simply offering access to technology, NRTC designs complete solutions to meet the unique needs of each member. From selection to implementation through on-going operation, our team stands by you to help maximize your technology investment.

We design our solutions to work together for the benefit of our members. Building a communications network that enables electric cooperatives to implement advanced smart grid technologies; mobile solutions that enable broadband providers to offer bundled services; managed services that enable members to operate a reliable and secure network.

Broadband
We help you deliver fast, reliable broadband to all your customers—no matter how remote. From technology evaluation and business modeling to design and engineering and right through construction and daily operations, you’ll get the right model for providing high-speed service.
Smart Grid
Our goal is to provide the right combination of technologies to assist all functions within a rural distribution cooperative. NRTC solutions make life easier for linemen in the field, technicians remotely monitoring systems or the manager planning deployment and financing.
Managed Services
Operations, billing, and customer care are vital for success. Many of our members are jumping into telecommunications for the first time, and we understand just how much work it takes to prepare for and successfully operate telecommunications networks. There are a multitude of things a new operator must manage, and we here to help.
Mobile
Our highly flexible turnkey solution enables operators to enjoy all the advantages of smartphone, tablet, and IOT use on a nationwide 4G LTE/5G cellular network, even in areas where creating a costly wireless infrastructure just isn’t feasible.
