RCN Business has launched business network services in the Empire State Building (ESB) at 350 Fifth Avenue in New York City. With this new service in the building, businesses will have access to the entire RCN Business suite of services, including high-speed Internet, Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), Hosted Voice, PRI/SIP Trunks, Video (HDTV) and Ethernet E-Line and E-LAN.
RCN Business delivers ESB tenants superior service, offering a diverse point of entry into the building. ESB tenants also benefit from high-quality, certified Ethernet services, backed by the Metro Ethernet Forum’s (MEF) rigorous Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) certification. RCN Business is one of the first U.S. carriers to have achieved MEF CE 2.0 status, which indicates a communications provider’s ability to deliver today’s most advanced Ethernet services.
Standing more than 1,400 feet tall and claiming a commanding place in the Manhattan skyline, the ESB is perhaps the world’s most famous office building. Having recently made investments in energy efficiency, updated infrastructure, public areas and amenities, the building hosts tenants from a variety of industries.
The Empire State Building is certified “Platinum” by WiredNYC, which guarantees that building tenants have the maximum level of choice when selecting communications service providers, as well as full distribution of fiber throughout the building. Wired certification is an official set of standards developed and approved by an NYCEDC-appointed Advisory Board for assessing Internet services in NYC buildings.
