Lambda Rail Coming To Pensacola

The Lambda Rail could provide high paying jobs in the Pensacola area.

For those of you not familiar with a Lambda Rail, you are not alone.  It is a way of transmitting data digitally over great distances at high speed with virtually no loss in quality.  It was described on the news as compared to existing high speed Internet.  if your existing high speed connection is the size of a drinking straw, a lambda rail would be more comparable with a PVC pipe.  The bandwidth and speed is exponentially faster than current Internet connections.

So what does it mean to Pensacola?  Pensacola has been approved to be a “Hub city” for lambda rail, and it is one of only a handful of cities in America with this distinction.  What this means is that there is now a rock solid draw for technology companies to set up shop here and connect to the hub.  With technology companies come high paying jobs, and a better outlook for the local economy.

According to the report, the lambda rail could be operational by the end of the year.  You can see a transcript of the news segment on WEAR’s website here.
