The growth of WiFi in libraries was expanded today with EthoStreamÂs installation of the EthoStream Library Solution into the first 10 locations of the Los Angeles Public Libraries. With the Internet becoming a fact of life in more and more daily activities, a high-speed Internet connection is a necessity. The Los Angeles Public Libraries has recognized this and has named EthoStream as its provider of choice for its high-speed Internet access (HSIA).
Los Angeles Public Libraries has chosen EthoStreamÂs Library Solution for its integrated EthoStream Control Center (ECC). The Control Center will allow Los Angeles Public Libraries management to monitor and report on every aspect of the HSIA installed in the library. The ECC also allows management of the HSIA such as defining hours of activation or bandwidth management.
EthoStreamÂs Library Solution and integrated Control Center also allows for additional communication services to be added. Such features as Digital Video Recording, IP Video Surveillance and numerous others set the EthoStream Library Solution apart from other products. The Control Center provides the ability to remotely manage all of these features creating greater value and reducing costs for libraries.
More and more organizations are realizing the need for HSIA. DoctorÂs offices, restaurants, parks and marinas have all found that customers perceive greater value and greater benefit from locations that allow them to be more efficient. Hotels and gas stations such as Hiltons and Flying J have been able to attract new customers purely through sharing their Internet connection. From business to recreation, people carry a number of devices each day that benefit from this new technology.
James VanGerpen of the Los Angeles Public Libraries states, ÂEthoStreamÂs Control Center allows me to be more productive each and every day.Â ÂThis is the same reason that more and more libraries choose EthoStreamÂs Library Solution to provide HSIA to library patrons," states EthoStreamÂs Jason Tienor. ÂWe find that an increasingly large and growing number of libraries wish to add this new benefit and are searching for the most efficient and secure manner of doing so.Â EthoStreamÂs current customers include the Waukesha Federated Library System, the Scottsdale Public Library System, the LA Public Libraries and many more.
