RCN Business Brings Redundancy to Javits Center
Fully redundant fiber solution ensures maximum uptime to support venue’s world-class facility
Princeton, NJ – February 2, 2016 – RCN Business, a communications provider delivering network solutions for voice, data and video, announces today it has worked with channel partner, ZLH Enterprises, to design a secure and redundant network alternative for both Internet and VOIP services at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center (“Javits Center”) in NYC.
RCN Business partnered with ZLH Enterprises, a consulting company that works with business entities to develop cost-effective and efficient network WAN connectivity, to provide a reliable and scalable, fiber-rich network. The Javits Center required redundancy for both its Internet and voice services. RCN Business was able to provide a dual carrier, dual entry solution for Javits. Known as the Marketplace for the World ®, the Javits Center boasts 840,000 square feet of flexible exhibition space and can accommodate any size event at any time. Because it is chosen by 39,000 companies as their preferred venue every year, a fully redundant, secure IT infrastructure is essential to ensuring events that take place there are operational at all times.
“RCN was able to provide the dual entry that was required to minimize business disruption in the event of failure,” states Zina Hassel, CEO of ZLH Enterprises. “We also wanted the ability to have scalable bandwidth from a multitude of carriers and one of these was RCN due to its available infrastructure in New York City. Both the engineering department and the sales staff provided what the Javits Center required and managed the needs of the facility with exceptional professionalism. They were asked to think outside the box, and they have done just that to provide a flexible and robust solution.”
“RCN Business works closely with our channel partners to provide solutions that are both secure and scalable,” says Michael Carrosquilla, SVP Commercial Services at RCN. “We are pleased to be involved with this state-of-the-art facility, and look forward to continuing to provide the latest technology.”
