Due to issues with Lightspeed internet filtering over the past few years, CMT started researching new internet filter solutions in December of 2016.

A total of 7 internet filter solutions were researched. Three of them would be selected as finalists for testing.

Goals:
Eliminate existing issues with Lightspeed.
Maintain the features of Lightspeed.
Add capabilities we don't have with Lightspeed.
Provide redundancy to our internet filter to minimize outages. This will include an internet based filter for home filtering.
Provide a scalable solution as SACS increases bandwidth. In other words, the system is cable of supporting additional bandwidth.
