4Connections Deploys a Cost-Effective, Redundant Fiber Optic Ring for New Jersey-Based Meridian Health System

Meridian's New Network Allows the Central New Jersey Healthcare Provider to Manage its Own Carriers and Capacity to Deliver Next-Generation Services More Efficiently

PARSIPPANY, N.J., June 13 / / -- 4Connections, a New Jersey and New York metro lit and dark fiber provider, announces today that the company has successfully deployed a dark fiber optic ring for Meridian Health System, a premier health care provider in central New Jersey. As a result of this network deployment, Meridian Health dramatically improves its bandwidth capacity. Meridian is also able to control its networking operational costs, by tapping into New Jersey's top carrier hotel, 165 Halsey in Newark, and thereby accessing a variety of carriers' networks that can compete for its network services. The health care provider can also better manage its network growth, allowing for easier deployment of its next-generation services, such as digital imaging management solutions and streaming video, to better service its patients and staff throughout its four New Jersey hospitals.

"Working with 4Connections on this network deployment helps Meridian Health maintain the highest level of service our patients deserve," states Rebecca Weber, Vice President of Information Technology for Meridian Health. "By continuing to upgrade and improve our network with partners like 4Connections, we can share critical information faster and as a result, help patients more efficiently."

"The completion of this fiber optic ring deployment was the result of a true team effort between 4Connections and Meridian Health, illustrating true commitment by all involved to further enhance New Jersey healthcare systems," continues Enzo Clemente, recently appointed VP of Construction and Engineering for 4Connections. "We believe with better ways to communicate, New Jersey hospitals are now more equipped to service its patients, whom are our families and neighbors, in a timely and effective manner."

4Connections just signed another significant healthcare provider scheduled for installation later this year in New Jersey and continues to make its mark on New Jersey businesses with effective partnerships and networks deployments across the state. Most of 4Connections' customers also have access to the carrier hotel at 165 Halsey in Newark and realize low costs for unlimited bandwidth between one another, aside from wholesale voice and Internet services.

"This is another win for New Jersey healthcare," states Gil Santiliz, President of 4Connections. "Meridian now has a private, self-managed fiber supporting HIPPA standards, with clear cost containment and digital imaging solutions. These network benefits are critical for healthcare providers serving the residents of New Jersey."

Meridian Health joins Trinitas as the second significant New Jersey healthcare network provider experiencing success with 4Connections network deployments.
