Allentown, PA – September 12, 2016 – RCN Business, a communications provider delivering network solutions for data, announces it has entered into an agreement with the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority (LNAA) to provide communications, voice and data services at Lehigh Valley International Airport (LVIA) in Allentown, PA. Additionally, RCN Business will provide network services to Queen City Airport (Allentown) and Braden Airpark (Easton) providing quick access to business and leisure destinations in the Lehigh Valley metro area.
“We worked closely with airport staff to provide a reliable and fiber-rich network spanning both the Lehigh Valley International Airport and Queen City Airport campuses,” states Sanford Ames, Jr., Senior Vice President and General Manager of RCN Business. “We are dedicated to ensuring the satisfaction of our partners by creating a customized solution that meets all of their needs at the greatest possible value. We also ensure scalability so that more bandwidth is available as the airports expand. The airports now have 24x7 visibility into all operations, which enables it to run at the highest possible efficiency.”
Since 1929, Lehigh Valley International Airport has served the state of Pennsylvania, while enhancing the customer experience through a variety of upgrades to keep pace with the highest standards of technology, safety and comfort. Last year, LVIA welcomed 673,505 passengers – a ten percent increase from 2014. RCN Business worked with airport representatives to identify the most urgent needs of all three airports operated by the LNAA. Ultimately, RCN Business installed point-to-point Ethernet access, Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), voice services and cable television services across various locations, including Queen City Airport and Braden Airpark.
“We were impressed not only with the solution provided by RCN Business, but also by their comprehensive plan and the customer service of their knowledgeable staff,” says Charles R. Everett, Jr., Executive Director of Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority. “They took a proactive approach to meeting our needs and went above and beyond to present the Authority with the best options for network solutions on the market.
