Comcast to Provide Business Class Ethernet and Trunks to West Haven

Mar 04, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Comcast Corp., a media and technology company, announced that it is providing Business Class Ethernet and Business Class Trunks to the City of West Haven, Conn.

In a release, the Company noted that as part of this agreement, Comcast is providing a complete network solution featuring high-speed Internet access and voice services that connect City Hall to 17 municipal locations, including West Haven's three libraries, six firehouses, the high school, beach patrol offices and the police department.

The City's network support vendor, the Business Network Group, is providing local and wide area design and network integration services to support this endeavor.

"Comcast's network was everywhere we needed it to be, and the local team worked so closely with us throughout the process that we were able to complete our entire network cutover in no time," said Alan Olenick, IT manager for the City of West Haven. "We now have a state-of-the-art technology infrastructure that is impacting our citizens in numerous ways, from transferring security footage from our shoreline cameras to the police, to improved Internet access at our facilities, to enabling City Hall to be more responsive to inquiries all of which are dramatically helping to further reinforce the quality of our public services." "Municipalities are engaged in a constant struggle to deliver key services to their residents while still being cognizant of costs but an increasing number are finding that partnering with a service provider that already has the technology infrastructure in place can help them do this quickly and cost-effectively," said Charlie Tzoumas, Comcast's Vice President of Business Services in Connecticut. "Comcast has invested decades of research and engineering into building infrastructure to make its advanced network broadly available to meet the high-speed, high-capacity needs of business, education and municipal customers around the country, and we are looking forward to continuing to offer new and innovative services to local governments of all sizes."
