Blue Ocean Technologies completes wi-fi upgrade for Innovation Depot
Birmingham AL (July 27, 2012) -- Blue Ocean Technologies, a Birmingham-based VoIP and network solutions company, has completed an upgrade to the existing wireless network at the Innovation Depot business incubator in Birmingham..
The previous system at Innovation Depot was run over a DSL network with 4 access points located throughout the 140,000 square foot building. Now, Blue Ocean has installed a “virtual” WLAN solution that provides full access to the 50 MBps bandwidth and improves speed to each tenant. In addition, the new wi-fi system grants Guest access while in the building, as well as providing access to each tenant’s private network.
“We are pleased to provide a better wireless Internet experience for our tenants,” says Devon Laney, COO of Innovation Depot. “Our new configuration is a much faster and flexible solution for the rigorous needs of the businesses in the Depot.”
Blue Ocean Technologies has been providing updates to network infrastructure for years, and the new vWLAN systems have become a popular choice for larger facilities. According to Blue Ocean CEO Bill Pautler: “The vWLAN network is an ideal solution for large facilities that specialize in health care, education, libraries and other enterprise businesses. These new networks make scaling network operations much easier on the IT departments of these operations.”
Blue Ocean Technologies is Alabama’s premier provider of VoIP technology to the business marketplace, offering the latest in IP telephony, contact center software, and collaborative communication networking.
Innovation Depot, a business incubation facility and program that focuses on the development of emerging biotechnology/life science, information technology and service businesses, operates in partnership with the University of Alabama at Birmingham. A public-private economic development effort, Innovation Depot is funded by the Birmingham regional business community, the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham and other leading private foundations, UAB, the City of Birmingham and Jefferson County.
