RCN Technologies Donates Equipment and Services



Knoxville-based tech company RCN Technologies announced a COVID-19 community aid program by providing over $10,000 in wireless networking equipment and tech support service free to critical community organizations in healthcare, education, and public safety throughout the East Tennessee region.

RCN can help organizations whose operations have been or will be impacted by COVID-19 with immediate networking and technology needs, including secure, pop-up or temporary wireless networks, CIPA-compliant school bus hotspots, mobile command center networks with advanced threat protection, secure remote access and productivity kits and more.

Before officially announcing the program, the Knox County Sheriff’s Office and an area healthcare system contacted RCN about potentially using the free wireless networking and tech support. RCN reached out to the Knox County Health Department to determine what needs could be met at no cost to the county.
