New York, NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2011
BBH Solutions, Inc., a leading New York City provider of converged network and cloud computing solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of their technology showcase located in DAS USA’s new show and office facility. DAS has earned a worldwide reputation for excellence in the design, manufacture and installation of specialized desks for trading and control rooms. The grand opening for the facility, located at 875 Avenue of the Americas, is scheduled for October 6, 2011.
“Our partnership with DAS gives visitors to the showroom the opportunity to experience a working voice, data, and video technology environment which complements the function and style of their furniture line,” said Bruce Hoernecke, President and CEO of BBH Solutions, Inc. “We look forward to introducing customers to our solutions in this venue.”
BBH Solutions equipped the facility with unified communications, video conferencing, audio visual, and media solutions, including:
-Cloud-hosted voice services via a Cisco Unified Communications Manager located in one of BBH Solutions’ secure Network Operations Centers (NOC). The services include Cisco Unity unified messaging
-Polycom Room Telepresence video conferencing
-Sharp 70” wall-mount High-Definition TV for media and presentations
-Samsung 55” Smart High-Definition TV
-Crestron DM 8G+ “One Wire” digital media solution
-HP desktop PCs
-An array of multi-sized monitors, ranging from 19” to 37” for trading desk applications
-Access control system with proximity cards
BBH Solutions also helped DAS secure a 10 Mb Ethernet over copper circuit, for a VPN connection back to their home office in London.
Environmental consciousness and sustainable building practices played a great part in the design and technology decisions for the new facility. Cloud hosted applications help reduce corporate carbon footprint by lowering electrical usage associated with data center power and cooling, and telepresence technology lessens the need for corporate air travel by enabling video conferencing from multiple points across the globe. With DAS’ in-depth knowledge and experience in environmentally friendly product design, and expertise provided by industry leading consultants, the construction project has been registered for LEED certification. Once achieved, the space will be the first LEED accredited facility in its industry.
