Matanuska Telephone Association select Symmetry to protect critical communication platform

Matanuska Telephone Association (MTA) provides its members state-of- the-art, reliable and competitively-priced communications, superior customer service, a voice in governance, capital credit allocations/distributions, and support for local, community, and economic development. MTA’s service area extends across nearly 10,000 square miles of Alaska’s wilderness - south to Eagle River, north to Anderson, east to Glacier View, and west to Skwentna. MTA also has 3 consumer stores located in Palmer, Eagle River, and Wasilla, Alaska.

MTA invests in the highest quality and most advanced products available in the industry, including extensive fiber optic cabling and electronic platforms to support broadband signals such as digital subscriber loop (DSL). These products must remain secure to provide MTA customers with the best communication products. To help provide these state-of-theart products to Alaska residents, MTA invested heavily in its security program over the years to protect not only MTA’s main headquarters, two retail stores and approximately 10 central offices, but also to secure its 100+ unmanned communication huts located throughout southern Alaska. Security throughout this vast area communicates over MTA’s Wide Area Network (WAN) to provide one seamless security system for all locations.
