Facing an inadequate communications network that would no
longer support necessary transmission operations, Prairie Power Incorporated took
initiative to work with for-profit companies, telephone cooperatives, and its
own members to strategically upgrade to a broadband network, while utilizing
existing assets to gain efficiencies and save money. The result was a
successful strategic sourcing approach that ultimately allowed PPI to launch a
host of new services to benefit its members, including centralized distribution
SCADA, infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and IT cybersecurity services.
