Today's telecommunications, Internet, broadcasting, videoconferencing and streaming video service providers serve a wide variety of customers in business and consumer markets. All of their customers are after the fastest broadband speeds; the clearest voice connections; and the most realistic and optimized gaming, streaming video, videoconferencing and television viewing experiences. To respond to these demands, service providers need to build and maintain high-speed, robust and secure IT infrastructures that can deliver optimized services to billions of homes, businesses and mobile devices around the globe.
Designing, building, deploying and maintaining a high-performance infrastructure is a monumental undertaking. Only experienced experts who know how to assess, design, deploy and manage complex networks of routers, switches, DSL equipment, wireless broadband hardware and Ethernet extensions can successfully accomplish a job of this magnitude. In order to remain focused on serving their customers' broadband, voice and video demands, communications services providers must rely on trusted infrastructure solutions providers to power their complex back ends.
Through its 2009 acquisition of Acuity Solutions, FishNet Security is now providing infrastructure services to a wide range of communications services providers as well as customers in some of the world's other largest industries. FishNet Security's Infrastructure business line leverages an experienced team of assessors, architects and engineers and partnerships with leading hardware and software providers to design and implement high-performance infrastructures that enable your mission-critical, high-demand applications and services.
