Spectrum Enterprise supports Texas State Aquarium’s collaboration, data growth

July 17, 2023
Cable MSO serves up its suite of unified communications and fiber internet for the nonprofit organization.

Spectrum Enterprise is helping Corpus Christi, Texas-based Texas State Aquarium enhance its wildlife rescue operations and improve onsite veterinary care technology solutions with its suite of unified communications and fiber internet services.

A big focus of the new service capabilities to adapt to the Aquarium’s needs.

Spectrum Enterprise installed Unified Communications with RingCentral and doubled the bandwidth capabilities of the existing Fiber Internet Access connections to meet the evolving needs of the Texas State Aquarium and help ensure that their digital infrastructure will be able to scale to address their future growth.

Being able to rapidly respond and address situations as they occur was important for this deployment.

Spectrum Enterprise UC with RingCentral enables employees to respond to inquiries from the public, including urgent calls for wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. The increase in internet bandwidth across the Texas State Aquarium’s facilities makes it easier for employees to manage data-intensive challenges, such as sea turtle migration monitoring, veterinary read outs and water-quality reporting. 

“Our mammal, bird and marine life exhibits are enjoyed by more than 500,000 visitors each year, and we recently opened the largest wildlife rescue center in Texas,” said Jesse Gilbert, president and CEO, Texas State Aquarium. “The connectivity and communications technology solutions provided by Spectrum Enterprise are critical for supporting our state-of-the-art veterinary equipment and emergency operations center.”

He added that “the communications platform enables callers to reach out to our rescue operations team to report stranded and injured animals, and the expanded bandwidth and internet speed allow us to easily use data intensive equipment, like a CAT scan, to share images with veterinary experts anywhere in the world.”
