networkMaryland™ provides private network connectivity among Government entities and partners using the StateWide Government Intranet (SwGI) and the One Maryland Broadband Network (OMBN). SwGI is a private, trusted network that provides a centralized resource for State entities to communicate with other State governmental entities and data centers. SwGI allows State agencies to create and share resources like FMIS, WebFleet Master, DNS, MVA applications and Criminal Justice Information Systems to other governmental partners

Service Level Objective (SLO):

SwGI/OMBN has a 99.9% uptime service level objective; excluding planned outages, maintenance windows and unavoidable events.

Features and Benefits:

  • Provides service subscribers to both publish and access Intra-agency services (like FMIS, MView, MVA, etc.) without requiring either dedicated communication circuits or establishing site-to-site VPN tunnels
  • Provides a common Statewide IP address allocation plan that ensures no address overlap
  • Provides more cost-effective network service than the Internet or dedicated network circuits for exchanging data between agencies
