Regional Community Network

What is RCN?

The Regional Community Network (RCN) is a private Internet connecting MAG member agencies. This connection uses existing agency-owned fiber in combination with wireless links to share traffic and public safety information. There is no additional cost to agencies for this connections. The connection is making efficient use of existing government investments.

Who is connected?

While we hope to eventually connect all MAG Member Agencies, the following agencies are currently connected:

  • ADOT
  • Avondale
  • Chandler
  • Gilbert
  • Glendale
  • Goodyear
  • Mesa
  • Peoria
  • Phoenix
  • Queen Creek
  • Scottsdale
  • Surprise
  • Tempe
  • Valley Metro

In keeping with our mission, we continue to look for small connectivity gaps to bridge that will allow us to use existing government investment.

How do I get connected?

If you are a MAG member agency, simply contact the RCN Program Manger to find out what it would take to get your agency connected. Other government agencies may also contact MAG to discuss options. A simple agreement is all that is required to participate. Private sector connections are not supported due to the funding source used to install the infrastructure.

What can I put on the network?

There are a limited number of approved uses for the network. Additional uses can be approved through an application process. Find out more by reading the RCN Roles and Responsibilities document.
