Wilcon, the leading West Coast provider of fiber-optic and data center infrastructure, today announced plans to provide Orange County-based Chapman University with a high-speed fiber-optic highway between the University’s campuses.
“Our dedication to helping the education field is paramount,” said Jon DeLuca, CEO of Wilcon. “By partnering with Chapman University to help them digitally connect their campuses, Wilcon is strongly supporting the outstanding educational excellence in Southern California.
“We are at the forefront for providing customized fiber-optic solutions to leading learning and research facilities in our region,” DeLuca said. “By continually expanding the reach and capacity of our ultra-broadband data networks, we are able to deliver robust and resilient bandwidth to educational institutions in a scalable, cost-effective way.”
“Our recent and upcoming expansions, such as the new Musco Center for the Arts in Orange and the Rinker Health Science Campus in Irvine, continue to place heavy demands on our network,” said Michael Ferguson, Chapman University’s Network Operations Manager. “Wilcon’s fiber network allows us to seamlessly integrate our campus network with Internet Service Providers as well as connect our multiple locations in a robust and redundant manner. This will allow us to vastly increase our bandwidth, which will encourage students to focus on learning in new and innovative ways. We see great things for the future and look forward to this partnership with Wilcon.”
