Los Angeles, CA, (May 12, 2015) – Wilcon, the West Coast leader in fiber optic and data center infrastructure, is pleased to announce plans to expand its footprint in Hollywood with a new strategic build through the core of the Hollywood Media District.
Steven Whiddon, Executive Director of the Hollywood Media District, stated, “Wilcon’s fiber development plan in Hollywood is a welcomed investment in our business community and will enhance our ability to support innovative start-ups and attract the emerging digital technology firms that drive Hollywood’s future growth.”
“What makes the Media District so interesting,” Whiddon continued, “is the mix of historic and new creative office spaces that are desired by this new media and entertainment community. The Media District is poised to become a hotbed of creative energy and new business opportunity in Los Angeles.”
“Expanding our network in Hollywood, the heart of the Los Angeles digital media economy, is a natural progression for our growth in Southern California,” according to Jon DeLuca CEO of Wilcon. “The media and entertainment industries are major drivers of the tremendous growth in bandwidth usage. This is just one of many strategic builds that we are planning to keep pace with the increasing demands for ultra-broadband network services in the Southern California region.”
Wilcon’s expanded network will enable Wilcon to continue to build the digital economy of Hollywood while serving its existing customers. With the evolving demands of post-production and content delivery, Wilcon is positioning itself to empower media and entertainment firms to grow their businesses with access to affordable and powerful high speed internet, dark fiber and lit transport capabilities. Combining these services with Wilcon’s Los Angeles-based data centers and interconnection capabilities creates a comprehensive digital network solution that can be customized for every company.
Companies like Khaos Digital, a Hollywood based video and graphic solution company serving the entertainment industry, is one such media firm benefitting from Wilcon’s network. Judy Marks of Khaos stated that “our need and reliance on high speed bandwidth is essential to our business, and Wilcon’s network reach will allow us satisfy our requirement at a price point that is compelling.”
Wilcon will continue to get the message out about its expansion into the media and entertainment fiber infrastructure market with its presence at the upcoming 2015 International Telecoms Week Conference (ITW) in Chicago this May.
