Stocks in this article: CMCSACMCSK

DETROIT, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast Corporation, one of the nation's leading providers of information and communications products and services, today announced that leading automotive consulting and software solutions provider, Urban Science, is using Comcast Business Class Ethernet for network connectivity to four of its offices in Tennessee and Michigan. Urban Science provides major global automotive companies with cloud-based business intelligence, so a secure, scalable and high-speed network is critical for transferring the large amounts of data to and from tens of thousands of automobile dealerships.

Comcast Business Class Ethernet Services provide Urban Science with the high performance network to support collaboration among its own offices and its automotive clients. This collaboration includes video conferencing and extensive desktop sharing, both of which take advantage of Comcast's high-bandwidth, low-latency network. After evaluating other offerings, Greg Davidson, CIO at Urban Science, found that with Comcast he was able to get seven times the bandwidth for 25% less than other providers. 

Through unique analytical software, Urban Science provides all U.S. and major global automotive manufacturers with scientific analyses that help evaluate, structure, and manage their dealer networks and marketing programs. The company provides its customers with valuable sales statistics and financial analytics that empower clients to respond to market forces, and improve their performance and profitability. Since this intelligence is Urban Science's key business asset, it makes the network delivering it to automotive dealers across the world even more important.

"Comcast Business Class delivers significant value to Urban Science," Davidson says. "Their scalable bandwidth gives us the confidence to continue expanding with them and offer our customers additional services through our cloud-based solutions. In fact, I'm proud to say that an expansion of our service is being done this year in the build out of our eighth global data center, and will include Comcast Business Class Ethernet to provide the high availability connectivity that our automotive clients require."
