Unite Private Networks (UPN), a leading provider of high-capacity, fiber-based communication networks, is pleased to announce a recent partnership with Iowa-based Internet, TV, and technology solutions provider, ICS. UPN will provide ICS with multiple high-speed EIA connections as well as a custom dark fiber solution.
“Our carrier-grade, 100 percent fiber-optic infrastructure will give ICS a secure and scalable connection that’s easily upgradable to 100 gigabit,” said Stephanie Tullis, Regional Sales Director. “With our dark fiber solution, ICS will be able to manage their own robust, dedicated fiber-optic network with virtually unlimited bandwidth, which in turn will help their business continue to serve their ever-growing client base.”
“Our partnership with UPN has enabled expansion of our business in the Cedar Rapids, Des Moines and Ames, IA markets,” said Matt Bueltel, CEO/CFO at ICS Advanced Technologies. “We were impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the UPN team. Using UPN fiber to connect ICS Advanced Technologies’ existing Ames fiber network provides higher capacity backhaul between network segments. The use of dark fiber positions ICS to deploy new high-speed data connections throughout Ames to MDU (apartment) customers and provide next-generation Internet service.”
