April 29, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Web hosting and internet access provider Front Range Internet announced they have chosen World Wide Packets LightningEdge solution to power their business-class solutions, including internet access, web hosting and hosted applications. Front Range Internet is rolling out a comprehensive business-class service built off of an existing fiber ring, which is also supported by World Wide Packets to provide video surveillance and other applications, in Fort Collins, CO with plans to expand.
"Rolling out these business services using World Wide Packets is part of our strategic plan to penetrate new geographic markets," said Barry Eastman, Director of Technical Operations for Front Range Internet, Inc. "Active Ethernet was a natural choice for us because of the technology's prevalence in the enterprises we serve. It also helps us extend those same business-grade services to residential customers, who increasingly ask for the capacity and flexibility fiber provides."
Front Range Internet is also rolling out VoIP services which World Wide Packets solution can enable. Additionally, migration to new services and provisioning those services is simplified by World Wide Packets' LightningEdge Network Supervisor (LE-NS), which Front Range Internet has already deployed.
"Attracting business customers is vital to the success of a service provider," says Dave Curry, CEO of World Wide Packets. "Front Range Internet has showcased its strong market strategy by going after those customers with a proven, reliable solution that leverages technology they use everyday. Once business customers are in place, creating a service for residential customers is a straightforward proposition. Front Range Internet will seize on this latent demand to achieve measurable business results."
