This week, the management of Alpheus Communications (News - Alert) has announced the opening of a new office in the Dallas metro area. The company – for those of you who are not familiar with them – describes its services and the expansion in the following terms:
"Since 2000, America’s largest telecom carriers have relied on Alpheus’ fiber network to serve their Texas customers, and Alpheus is now offering the same carrier-grade, low-latency services directly to businesses. The strong DFW economy and thriving business community is driving the fast-growing need for high-quality networking solutions in North Texas. With a fully redundant and resilient core fiber
network, Alpheus’ newly added enterprise services includes Metro Ethernet, MPLS, E-LAN and business-class voice services. All Alpheus services provide the performance and uptime guarantee required for mission-critical data, voice and video traffic. Alpheus’ multiple data centers with scalable connectivity to its fiber
network and SSAE-16 compliant platform give businesses the secured, scalable and redundant infrastructure for disaster recovery and business continuity applications."
While the company seems to have a handle on what businesses need, there is a real difference in the needs of businesses and the needs of consumers, so this expansion is a little bit of a stretch for the organization. The company appointed Justin Shively as division manager for the new Dallas office. In the release, put out by Layne Levine, senior vice president, enterprise and channel sales, for Alpheus Communications, the following was said about the appointment, “Justin has a proven track record in our industry, and he will be an extremely valuable asset to Alpheus’ aggressive growth strategy. Not only does Alpheus have the high-quality, high-capacity fiber network and metro reach that businesses are looking for, we are agile and responsive to our customers’ needs. We are a Texas company focused on serving Texas businesses.”
Will the venture be a success? In the end, only time will tell.
