The Internet is essential to a strong business and, some would argue, to a happy life. Fast, high-quality Internet can literally be the difference between a business failing or succeeding. Addison-based Metroplex Communications, Inc. understands the importance of the Internet, which is the company is partnering with Unite Private Networks (UPN), a leading provider of high-capacity, fiber-based communication networks.
UPN is providing a point-to-point dark fiber solution to Metroplex Communications, in order to bring 20 Gigabit Internet to Toyota Music Factory in Irving. This will connect Toyota Music Factory to Metroplex Communication’s POP at the Infomart Data Center in Dallas.
“Our carrier-grade, industry leading network solution will allow Metroplex Communications advanced connectivity options with speeds that are easily upgradeable to meet ever-growing bandwidth requirements,” said Blair Pierce, content account director at UPN in a recent press release. “UPN’s 100 percent fiber-optic infrastructure offers robust network protection with enhanced core and diversity. We provide a suite of products including dark fiber, wavelength services, Internet access, and metro Ethernet products, and we are excited to extend our network to Metroplex Communications and the Irving business community.”
Metroplex Communications is the first to provide dedicated fiber-based Inertnet, voice and managed network services to Toyota Music Factory. The company is also the first to provide these services to places like Bar Louie, Texas Jam House, Highway 61, Bar Manzanilla, Martini Ranch, Texas C Bar, Thirsty Lion and the ARK Group.
“We bring Internet to the last inch, we don’t leave it at the door,” said Michael Eber, CTO of Metroplex in the press release. “We believe Internet should be fast and work; customer service is as critical as the data you send.”
“Having super-fast Internet for our tenants is essential for business,” added Noah Lazes, president of ARK Group and developer of Toyota Music Factory in the release. “We welcome Metroplex to Toyota Music Factory.”
The Toyota Music Factory is a new entertainment and music venue in Las Colinas. It is a $200 million, 16.7 acre, 453,000 square foot entertainment and lifestyle complex. It has a variety of events to appeal to everyone, and many restaurants are expected to open through 2018.
UPN was founded in 1998, and it provides high-bandwidth, fiber-based communications networks and services to schools, governments, carriers, data centers, hospitals and enterprise business customers across a 20-state service area.
Headquartered in Addison, Metroplex Communications provides industry-disrupting Internet, phone and managed services to businesses in the area. It was founded in 2014 because of the lack of adequate options for Internet connectivity and chronically poor customer service.
