The Boston Ballet Gets in Step with Comprehensive Suite of Ethernet Services from Comcast Business

Comcast Business announced that Boston Ballet is using Comcast Business Ethernet services for faster Internet speeds and greater reliability across all four of its locations in the Boston metropolitan area. In addition to substantially enhancing inter-office collaboration, the new network will also improve Internet access for online ticket sales and help bring the arts to even more members of the local community by supporting an extensive collection of online videos for entertainment, educational and promotional purposes. The company relies extensively on the use of video to bring the highly visual dance experience to life through performance clips, promotional trailers, interviews with show choreographers and dancers, and more. The company now has a redundant network infrastructure supported by 20 Megabits-per-second (Mbps) fiber Ethernet Network Service from Comcast Business that interlinks its headquarters at 19 Clarendon Street in Boston, two Boston Ballet School Studios in Newton and Marblehead, and the Boston Opera House. A 50 Mbps Ethernet Dedicated Internet fiber circuit at its main offices also helps to support the organization's in-house box office, as well as seat scanners at the Opera House that allow the Ballet to monitor show attendance, reseat patrons and resell unused tickets. A Comcast Business Class Internet line is also being used at all four locations at speeds up to 100 Mbps for extra bandwidth. Through Comcast Business, the Boston Ballet also is able to provide Wifi at its Boston Ballet studios to its students, parents and guests.
