JUNE 16, 2010 -- Optimum Lightpath, provider of Ethernet-based communication solutions for New York metropolitan area businesses, has been selected by Brooklyn Law School to provide improved Internet and voice services to meet the 24/7 bandwidth demands of its student population.
“Access to information is at the heart of what allows our students and teachers to be successful every day and in a 24/7 access environment with bandwidth needs increasing all the time, it’s important that we work with a service provider that can help us meet these growing network demands,” says Phil Allred, chief information officer, Brooklyn Law School. “Optimum Lightpath worked in true partnership with us to understand our network needs and deliver an advanced, affordable Internet and voice service that is less expensive than what we were paying previously. As our network needs continue to grow, we know Optimum Lightpath is ready to expand with us so that we can continue to deliver the very best to our teachers and students.”
The deployment impacts Brooklyn Law School’s 1,500 students and 150 faculty and staff on campus and 11 nearby residence halls. Brooklyn Law School increased its Internet capacity from 45 megabits to 100 megabits, while implementing an improved voice service that is more feature-rich and reliable than its previous copper-based solution.
