Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2015
Wilcon, the leading West Coast provider of fiber-optic and data center infrastructure, today announced a major capital investment to deploy new fiber optic routes throughout Pasadena, California. This investment will interconnect public and private institutions, including NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
“We continue to invest in expanding our network to satisfy the growing needs of a tech-based society here in Southern California,” said Jon DeLuca, CEO of Wilcon. “The Pasadena area is known throughout the world as a center of cutting-edge technology, and our hope is that Wilcon’s investment will help support the entrepreneurship, research and innovation currently prospering in the region.”
The City of Pasadena, with more than 130,000 residents, has over 7 million square feet of office space, and includes major employers in the Healthcare and Financial services industries and numerous technology start-up businesses. The increased availability of bandwidth created by Wilcon’s investment aims to boost economic productivity in the Los Angeles-area suburb.
Tim Naple, Founder of Berkeley Communications (BerkCom), an IT and cloud solution provider with regional locations in Pasadena and South Pasadena, stated, “The need for fiber-based, last-mile connectivity to local Pasadena-area businesses and institutions is critical. Wilcon’s new routes and ability to connect local customers’ needs to the major sources of that bandwidth based in downtown Los Angeles are vital to the long-term growth of both our business and region.”
The Pasadena build follows recent Wilcon fiber-optic expansion in Hollywood and North San Diego County. Additional expansion plans will be announced later in 2015.
