Major Projects Completed

Internet Service Provider


Trificient built and maintained a Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) system in Mount Airy, NC from 2001 to 2009. The system was comprised of 7 tower locations providing coverage to customers in a 28 mile radius. We provided internet and voice services, as well as network services to over 500 customers in North Carolina and Virginia.


Engineering, Construction, Management
Carroll County, Grayson County, Galax, Virginia


Trificient built and maintained the original wireless internet system in Carroll County, Virginia, providing Galax and Hillsville with broadband connectivity. This system was incorporated into The Wired Road which is still in operation. Our engineers designed and built the wireless equipment used to provide service to the end users when the equipment provided by a manufacturer did not work. The same Trificient designed equipment was used in other locations and is still performing today.


Bland County, Virginia


Trificient designed and built wireless systems for Bland County, Virginia. Originally we built a mesh network, providing coverage in downtown Bland and out to the I-77 exit. We designed a wireless network providing coverage to communities located on the I-77 corridor. We extended the network to another small community using funding from the USDA Community Grant Program. Trificient provided the design and technical details to support the grant application. We built the towers, implemented the backhaul and customer delivery system, constructed the community building to house the computer center for the unserved area and ran the ISP operation.


Cherokee, North Carolina


Trificient was commissioned by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians to design and build a wireless network to deliver internet connectivity on the Qualla Boundary. The project began in 2008 and the build out was completed in 2012. EBCI also ask Trificient to set up and manage the WISP operation which began in 2010 and continues today.

Trificient was also tasked to manage two existing fiber rings for the tribe. One ring covers 280 miles in western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee and northern Georgia. The second ring is a 23 mile ring built to serve tribal governmental departments on the Qualla Boundary. The two rings interconnect which will allow the tribe to provide services to outlaying sectors of the tribe in Robbinsville, Snow Bird and Murphy, North Carolina.

Trificient was also commissioned to build and manage the Internet Service Provider (ISP) facility for the Tribe. The ISP operation was named Cherokee Broadband Enterprise (CBE). CBE provides all the necessary back office support for billing and collections, personnel, inventory, purchasing, financials and other like office functions. Trificient hired and trained the personnel to run the operation.
