Integra Completes Expansion of Infrastructure
Written by Press Room Link

Integra, a provider of fiber-based, carrier-grade networking, communications and technology solutions, has completed a broad-scale expansion of its IP and carrier Ethernet network infrastructure in Montana. The expansion enhances the services available and increases bandwidth in the Billings and Bozeman areas.

By connecting its backbone national IP network to its metro network in the state, Integra can now deliver its complete portfolio of enterprise-grade offerings, featuring Carrier Ethernet Services, IP/ MPLS VPN and Managed and Cloud Services, including Integra's Hosted Voice Service and Cloud Firewall Service, to businesses throughout Billings and Bozeman. In addition, Integra's Montana customers can take advantage of high bandwidth Internet connectivity nationwide. This expansion is part of an ongoing strategic initiative by Integra to expand services due to increased demand for its carrier Ethernet services and other enterprise solutions from industries such as health care, government and education as well as professional services.

To meet that demand, Integra has extended its Ethernet services in Montana, with Ethernet-over-copper-based services supporting network bandwidths of up to 100 Mbps and fiber-based services offering speeds up to 1 Gbps. In Billings, Integra's expansion puts nearly 100 business locations on or near Integra's fiber-based network. "Integra has deep roots in Montana, with more than 15 years serving businesses in its economically diverse, hard-working communities," noted Joseph Harding, chief marketing officer of Integra. "Driven by several fast-growing industries, Billings and Bozeman are rich with businesses that need reliable, high-bandwidth network solutions backed by a level of personalized service they have come to expect from Integra.

These are exciting times in Montana and we're proud to put our people and capital to work to help support this growth." Among the Billings-area customers taking advantage of Integra's portfolio of products is the Northern Hotel. Restored by brothers Chris and Mike Nelson to its historic elegance while providing the most modern of four-star amenities, the Northern Hotel relies on Integra voice and data services for dependable and cost-efficient network communications. "When it came to incorporating their first-class services across our operations, Integra was truly a pleasure to do business with," said Mike Nelson, the Northern Hotel's general manager.

"When we bought the Northern Hotel, our commitment was to restore this one-of-a-kinlandmark to its historic place as the finest hotel in Montana, and we couldn't have done that without the business agility and level of service that partners like Integra bring to us every day."
