September 22, 2021, Portland, Maine: VETRO Inc., a software company delivering  internet infrastructure intelligence™ through a unique mapping platform, announced  today that it is collaborating with national network development and information  infrastructure professional services firm Tilson, to deliver grants management and  mapping services. VETRO’s advanced unparalleled technology and Tilson’s industry  expertise will be central to accelerating programs expanding availability of broadband connectivity in collaboration with agencies and governments across the United States.  

The two Maine-based companies have already kicked off a large-scale project with the  ConnectMaine Authority, a public agency whose mission is to facilitate the universal  availability of broadband across the state. Together, VETRO and Tilson are bringing the  intelligent data of cloud-based fiber management software and a deep understanding of  the objectives of public policy as it relates to the development and operation of  broadband infrastructure and services.  

“We are excited to partner with Tilson to ensure maximum efficiency and ROI for the  broadband initiatives here in Maine and nationally,” said Brian Mefford, VETRO VP of  Broadband Strategy. “Tilson has done extensive work with state, local, and municipal  governments to support broadband expansion and infrastructure development. Their  experienced project teams and our fiber management software will help broadband  program leaders successfully deploy new network construction for underserved  communities.”

The ConnectMaine initiative is the first joint venture between Tilson and VETRO; with  the unprecedented funding dollars now being deployed to states across the country,  their work with the state of Maine to improve connectivity through strategic grant design  and administration will serve as a model of implementation other states will be quick to adopt. 

“The value that VETRO delivers is so much more than mapping,” said Kelly Brewer,  Chief Operating Officer of Tilson. “Their unique combination of software, services and  data is tailor-made to bring intelligent data, transparency, and accountability to statewide connectivity initiatives. We are excited to be embarking on what we expect to be a long and productive working relationship as we work together to help bridge the  digital divide.”
