FirstLight’s Fiber-Based Services Provide Reliability and Scalability for New England and Upstate New York Farm-Family Owned Dairy Cooperative

Since opening its operation in 1919, Cabot Creamery Co, the Northeast’s premier dairy cooperative, has since expanded to 1,100 co-op farms who all strive for the same thing; to provide for their families, give back to their communities, and produce the best cheese in the world.

Known as makers of “The World’s Best Cheddar,” Cabot has spread its company into multiple service territories throughout New England and Upstate New York, leaving them in search of a fiber-based, private network connectivity solution that would allow for secure, any-to-any unified networking across its plants and administrative offices.

FirstLight, a leading fiber-optic bandwidth infrastructure services provider operating in the Northeast, announced today that the famous creamery has selected FirstLight’s Ethernet-Local Area Network (E-LAN) solution across eight of its sites. By choosing FirstLight, Cabot will now be able to transform its IT organization and implement the connectivity solution that would best meet its need for reliability and scalability to support its expansive operations.

In addition to their current agreement, Cabot Creamery Co-operative is also exploring additional FirstLight services, including Internet, Data Center and Cloud.

“FirstLight’s fiber-based E-LAN service provides the increased speed and reliability that our 24/7/365 business requires in order to support our data, phone and Internet connectivity,” commented Craig Wiltshire, Network Engineer for Agri-Mark, Inc. / Cabot Creamery Co-operative.
