The Boston Ballet Gets In Step With Comprehensive Suite Of Ethernet Services From Comcast Business

Stocks in this article: CMCSACMCSK

BOSTON, Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast Business today announced that Boston Ballet, one of the leading dance companies in the world, is using Comcast Business Ethernet services for faster Internet speeds and greater reliability across all four of its locations in the Boston metropolitan area. In addition to substantially enhancing inter-office collaboration, the new network will also improve Internet access for online ticket sales and help bring the arts to even more members of the local community by supporting an extensive collection of online videos for entertainment, educational and promotional purposes.

Headquartered at 19 Clarendon Street in Boston's South End neighborhood, the non-profit Boston Ballet boasts an internationally-acclaimed repertoire and the largest ballet school in North America, serving 3,000 students in Boston, Newton and Marblehead, as well as a number of local community centers and public schools across the metropolitan area. Now celebrating its 50 th anniversary, the dance company is home to one of the largest and best-equipped dance spaces in the country, and its award-winning performance of The Nutcracker is an iconic holiday tradition, which has been performed annually for 42 years.

As with any arts organization, Boston Ballet relies extensively on the use of video to bring the highly visual dance experience to life through performance clips, promotional trailers, interviews with show choreographers and dancers, and more. The Ballet's website also hosts videos for students learning new dance steps as well as an online portal where parents, donors and the organization's more than 100,000 patrons are able to receive event-specific information in real time. As both internal and external Web traffic grew, it soon reached the point where slow network connectivity was negatively affecting office productivity – with employees being asked to refrain from using video during the workday to reduce network strain.
