One of the nation’s largest internet, cable, and TV providers partnered with Accucode after exploring many other options that didn’t meet their needs for such a large scale project in one of the most famously dense urban environments in America: New York City. In such urban environments, WiFi is not only expected– it’s expected at a high speed, up and running 24/7, and available wherever you are. Urban environments and the people that live in them can’t function without constant access to the internet on the go and the best, reliable WiFi. Today, social media and text are the best ways to connect with other people, work on-the-go, review restaurant options, or simply navigate such a huge environment. In large urban environments such as New York City with little space for huge towers, WiFi is critical for everyday things that people have come to rely on such as Googling, Tweeting, Facebooking and Instagramming– anytime, anywhere.
Of all the cities in America, from locals to tourists, New York City especially gets that. From local life to tourism, demand for the best and fastest is at an all time high and increasing with the population size, influx of tourists, and reliance on tourism for income. There are increasingly more options out there for urban environments as they become bigger geographically as well as denser. In an effort to help visitors as well as locals, the city of New York is constantly looking to expand and change these options with easy-to-use, accessible WiFi anywhere in the city. WiFi is not only for social media; these hotspots allow critical access info on city services, maps, and directions. In the same way, subway stations that people rely on everyday have also joined the city’s WiFi networks. You can now access the Internet for free and even make cell phone calls from all underground NYC subway stations. Additionally, many parks across the boroughs offer some semblance of free WiFi; you’ll find hotspots in Central Park, Prospect Park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park and plenty of other green spaces. For more details, visit the Parks Department website. Additionally, most hotels, cafés, libraries, restaurants, and shops around the city are WiFi enabled.
With Accucode’s expertise in managed services in IT, our partnership with this provider met and exceeded the specific, unique needs in this city that were not being met. We effectively sourced, received and performed the assembly of 1,400 “WiFi in a box” units for New York City. Project management at our HQ in Denver coordinates directly and daily with our Depot in Louisville, Kentucky. This project is exemplary of how collaboration, engineering capabilities, and the ability to source large amounts of materials has resulted in a long history of successful projects for most of America’s largest wireless companies. That added to 25 years in inventory receiving, tracking, and distribution in large warehouse environments has given us a proven track record of success in many industries, especially for nationwide wireless companies.
