In 2007, Cuyahoga County’s Department of Development named Beta Drive as one of three designated areas in the pilot round of their Innovation Zone program. As part of this program, Mayfield Village has identified medical imaging as its target industry focus. In the fall of 2008, Beta Drive’s flagship medical imaging company received some pretty impressive recognition. Quality Electrodynamics (QED), a manufacturer of medical imaging equipment that opened its doors on Beta in 2006, was honored by Forbes Magazine as one of the 20 most promising companies in America.
The Innovation Zone project is an ongoing effort. Currently in its implementation phase, the Beta Drive Innovation Zone just saw the completion of its biggest infrastructure project since the business park was created. A ring of fiber optic cable has been placed by Innovation Zone partner OneCommunity around Beta Drive and sections of Wilson Mills and SOM Center Roads. This investment in IT infrastructure is already paying dividends for Mayfield Village and its businesses.
Fiber Optic Network
The Mayfield Village fiber optic network is a new facet of our Beta Drive commercial district. The network is intended by the Village to save our businesses substantial amounts of money on their internet and other IT costs. Mayfield Village not only partnered with regional dark fiber organization Everstream to install the fiber, but the Village and Everstream have teamed up to offer very competitive internet service prices to companies wishing to connect to the network.
