FRAMINGHAM, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 4, 2012) - After 17 years of successfully running a telecommunications business as Boston Wireless, the company today announced that it will now be known as Harbor Networks (www.harbornetworks.com).
In addition to the name change, the company rolled out an expanded suite of products and services and announced its expansion into Connecticut and New York with two new regional offices.
The name Harbor Networks is designed to reflect a clearer image of how the business has grown and transformed in concert with the unified communications industry. It also fosters and promotes continued geographic expansion, as Harbor Networks currently has customers in 41 of 50 United States and in 14 different countries.
Today, Harbor Networks is an integrator of unified communications technology. The company designs, implements, and supports IP telephone systems and IT infrastructures. Key partnerships are with industry leaders such as ShoreTel, Extreme, Avaya, Cisco, Lifesize, Ruckus, HP, and Verizon.
Harbor Networks also announced an updated Managed Services model. This new model will strengthen the company's ties to customers by proactively assessing, monitoring, and backing up the key performance elements of corporate network infrastructures. These services coincide with Harbor Networks' recently opened, state-of-the-art Unified Communications Center, which is built and staffed to support customer networks 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Despite the exciting changes, the company remains committed to its original mission to provide the highest level of professional experience and service to a market that demands it.
"We want to be sure to stay close to our Boston roots," says CEO and President Greg Bertschmann. "We think that having Harbor as part of our name will reflect this. There are few harbors in the world as beautiful and historic as Boston harbor. We trust that our customers will soon realize that Harbor Networks is a safe and well-protected place where they can have confidence in our company as their unified communications provider. We still believe that achieving service excellence means continuously evolving key partnerships and delivering the support, services, and products our customers need. We will continue to listen to our customers, adapt our breadth of knowledge, and remain an important valued partner to all of them."
"We are all very excited to announce our new identity," added Bertschmann, "Yet after all is said and done, it is people, not a name, that define a company. The most important element of our identity, a very bright team of dedicated employees, will not change a bit when our name does."
