JANUARY 26, 2011 -- Budd Van Lines of Somerset, N.J., is deploying high-bandwidth, value-based Internet and voice services powered by a 100% fiber-based network from Optimum Lightpath, a provider of Ethernet-based communication systems for New York metropolitan area businesses.

As a result of the 100% fiber network, the company has been able to roll out complex video monitoring of six national locations, a sophisticated GPS-tracking and alert application, and a better experience for its customers and employees, while also saving $25,000 annually.

Budd Van Lines sought to upgrade a legacy network based on T1 lines, which made moving big data packets impossible. Voice bills associated with a costly long-distance plan and local phone service would fluctuate often and were difficult to predict from month to month. When the company switched to the Optimum Lightpath Internet Voice Bundle offering a 50-mb connection and 100,000 monthly minutes of use for a flat rate, it boosted bandwidth by 15x and opened the door for cost savings nationally.

"Budd Van Lines has experienced firsthand what true business transformation looks like," says Julia McGrath, senior vice president of marketing and business development for Optimum Lightpath. "That this transformation came with significant cost savings, and an array of benefits for customers and employees alike is what makes us proud to be the network behind so many innovative businesses and organizations throughout the New York metro-area. When Budd Van Lines is ready to further evolve operations with the rollout of smart phones and tablets, our flexible network is ready to accommodate them quickly and easily, with the same market-leading value and performance they've come to expect."
