Fiber Offers the Historic U.S.S. Lexington New Power to Weather Storms and Expand Programs
"We signed the contract [and] from start through the finish we knew what to expect, and met the mark every step of the way. We came together as partners."
– Leila Gallagos, Human Resources Manager, U.S.S. Lexington
Commissioned in 1943, the U.S.S. Lexington is anchored in Corpus Christi Bay and operated as a museum. Its location in the path of potential hurricanes, heavy rain and flooding—meant the T1 service supporting the museum’s phones and Internet often went down. Plus, bandwidth limitations crippled business operations. Human Resources Manager wanted a better solution. With fiber, Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) delivered.
Immediate cost savings and new capabilities
TWCBC met the challenge of bringing fiber-based Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) all the way to the end of a pier. Today, despite storms and the steel walls separating the ship’s compartments, the bandwidth and reliability of DIA connectivity and fiber PRI are keeping the museum’s programs and communications running smoothly. Plus, even with phones, browsers and business applications at work, there’s still bandwidth for innovation, including WiFi service for visitors and support for the magnificent IMAX® theater.
