As more businesses were virtualizing their infrastructures and leveraging cloud services, Host.net began to attract more clients. To support them, Host.net needed a high-performance connection between its services and its customers using its Smart Cloud Architecture.
One of Host.net’s customers, Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, Inc., a rehabilitation center in South Florida, was using a legacy telecommunications provider to access its Host.net services. However, Behavioral Health was getting a lot of complaints about the latency of their own services, especially when sending bandwidth-intensive videos.
In addition, Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, Inc. recently started using Comcast Business Ethernet to connect to their Host.net services and they have been very pleased with the results.
Said Jeff Houchin, Director of Information Technology at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, Inc., "Our bandwidth has increased with Comcast Business – from 10 Megabits per second to 100 Mbps – so now we can easily transmit videos without delay. Not only are we getting a lot more value for our money with Comcast Business, but they have such extensive reach."
Added Chesal: "The need for for bandwidth never go away, rather it continues to grow as businesses like Behavioral Health are leveraging new technologies and generating larger amounts of data and content, and with Comcast Business we are able to to offer our customers a significant increase in capacity. In addition, Comcast Business offers our customers the option to scale their capacity as their businesses grow, with just one phone call."
