Metcom Network Services Delivers High-Capacity Bandwidth to Long Island MacArthur Airport

JVC Broadcasting Signs as First Customer for All-Fiber Network Services

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2014) - Metcom Network Services (MNS), a New York City-based provider of colocation services, access services, Ethernet transport and dark fiber connectivity, announces that it has launched fiber-based access and connectivity services at Long Island MacArthur Airport. JVC Broadcasting has signed on as the first customer and will utilize MNS' services to support the 24/7 broadcast of its multiple radio station and event business on Long Island. 

Long Island MacArthur Airport, which received FAA designation as an official New York/New Jersey Metro Airport in 2011, serves more than 5,000 people a day, making it one of the top 90 airports in the United States. The airport primarily serves residents of Suffolk and Nassau counties, but is also used by other travelers looking for a less-congested alternative to LaGuardia and JFK airports.

JVC Broadcasting, a tenant at Long Island MacArthur Airport, is one of the largest independently owned and locally operated radio broadcast, entertainment and event companies serving the Long Island and coastal Connecticut regions. One of JVC's top priorities is reliable, secure and redundant connectivity to ensure its 4.5 million listeners are able to enjoy their favorite radio stations without interruption.

"MNS is proud to offer high-bandwidth, redundant connectivity to the Long Island MacArthur Airport and to a broadcast customer for whom downtime is not an option," said Mark DuMoulin, President of MNS. "MNS understands the needs of JVC as a broadcast company. The requirement that their connectivity services don't go down is critical to ensuring their broadcast runs reliably and that their listeners and advertisers keep coming back. Our network portfolio offers MacArthur Airport, its current and future tenants the best in affordable connectivity and another strong, reliable option in a marketplace that demands the best."

MNS offers all-fiber connectivity across the New York metro area, with broad existing relationships with other national and international carriers. To learn more about MNS, please visit www.metcomnet.com.
