We are proud of our partnership with DAS USA... Our strengthening relationship, and combined desire to continually update both the desk and technology environments in the showroom have provided a dynamic and interactive climate for our customers.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
October marks the first anniversary of the opening of the trading technology showroom shared by BBH Solutions and DAS Business Furniture. The two industry leaders embarked on this joint venture to showcase DAS’ trading and control desk solutions with fully functional Cisco Voice-over-IP telephony and IP Trade Networks’ turret technologies. Visitors to the showroom are met with an interactive display of desk and technology configurations that demonstrate the functionality and power of BBH’s and DAS’ respective solutions.
The interior construction of the project was completed with sustainable building practices, under the supervision of LEED consulting firm SKYed Eco. BBH Solutions provided cloud-hosted applications that help to reduce the showroom’s carbon footprint by lowering electrical usage associated with data center power and cooling. The construction project has been registered for LEED certification. Once achieved, the space will be the first LEED accredited facility in its industry.
“We are proud of our partnership with DAS USA in this venture,” said Bruce Hoernecke, President and CEO of BBH Solutions, Inc. “Our strengthening relationship, and combined desire to continually update both the desk and technology environments in the showroom have provided a dynamic and interactive climate for our customers to get a sense of how well our solutions would function in their own work spaces.”
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
- Cisco (formerly Tandberg) Room Telepresence video conferencing
- IP Trade Networks trading turrets
- 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
Since its grand opening in October 2011, the showroom, located at 875 Avenue of the Americas in New York City, serves as an active workspace for both DAS and BBH employees, and as a venue for several educational and networking events. The range of topics covered during these events have included sustainable building practices, cloud computing and hosting, virtualization and network storage, and IP-based trading turret technology. Of recent note, DAS hosted an IIDA, CEU-approved lecture on understanding the multi-faceted activity of designing the objects that find themselves in the environments we live and work in.
"Our collaboration with BBH on this showroom has worked to the mutual benefit of both companies; and it’s worked out even better for our customers,” said Casey Markoe, VP of Sales for DAS USA. “Our partnership is very powerful as it enables us to provide a complete solution to our clients who are moving into a new location or renovating their existing space."
To help celebrate the anniversary event, BBH and DAS will be hosting an open-house networking reception on October 25, from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM.
