Austin Convention Center Expands Internet and Network Services with Alpheus Communications

Bandwidth growth projected in 2015 as more events focus on mobility and data-intensive transfers

AUSTIN, Texas – January 13, 2015 – Alpheus Communications, a leading provider of Texas metro-regional fiber and networking solutions, today announced that Austin Convention Center has selected Alpheus Communications for Internet and network services, renewing its existing contract and expanded services.

With international events and conferences that draw in tens of thousands of people each year to Austin, Texas, Internet bandwidth and network connectivity are critical to the clients, exhibitors and attendees of the city’s premier events facilities – the Austin Convention Center and Palmer Event Center. After a successful year-and-a-half with Alpheus, Austin Convention Center recently renewed its contract and added another 1GB of dedicated Internet access as the Convention Center prepares to host data-intensive events in 2015.

“Between both venues, we host hundreds of events every year, from internationally recognized interactive events to high profile business conferences and music festivals that bring top billed performers from across the globe,” said Greg Davis, LAN/WAN Integrator for the Austin Convention Center. “It is imperative that we provide high-performance and reliable Internet bandwidth that just won’t quit.”

During a marquee event last year, Alpheus provided the Convention Center with bandwidth that enabled streaming sessions, live online gaming and Internet access by over 44,000 event attendees on the Convention Center’s Wi-Fi system.

“The service from Alpheus has been exemplary since we started using them. They work with us to understand our business needs, and make sure the circuit is always up,” said Greg Davis, LAN/WAN Integrator for the Austin Convention Center. “The Internet access provided by Alpheus has allowed us to provide great service to our clients and the fact that they’re a local Texas business with great pricing is an additional bonus.”

“Alpheus is committed to providing personalized support and the highest quality network services that win our customer’s trust year after year,” said Matt Milliron, senior vice president, enterprise sales for Alpheus Communications. “We appreciate the partnership with Austin Convention Center to bring best-in-class Internet services to event sponsors and attendees.”
