Wireless Network to Bring Technology to South Los Angeles
California’s Economic Resources Corporation (ERC) has awarded a $427,747 contract to Embee Technologies for the installation and integration of a wireless network at a 52-acre business park in Lynwood, CA. The project will be funded by both the ERC and by an Economic Development Administration grant.
The network will increase the bandwidth available to the business park, which provides the infrastructure and resources necessary for growth of business activity, creation of jobs and development in the area. The complex is owned and operated by the ERC, a California nonprofit corporation formed to promote economic development and help revitalize the economically disadvantaged communities in South Los Angeles.
Located in the Alameda Corridor, near Imperial Highway and the 105 Freeway, the complex is a master-planned development with 12 separate facilities consisting of 15,000- to 200,000-square-foot buildings. The buildings house 45 tenants who occupy anywhere from 2000 to 100,000 square feet and employ approximately 1300 individuals.
Embee will install and configure 12 point-to-point 60 GHz wireless systems and the associated network hardware within the buildings. The network will allow the businesses within the complex to communicate with each other wirelessly between buildings at Gigabit-per-second speeds.
“We have been working hard to bring advanced information-age technology to the ERC Business Park in order to link all of our buildings into a single unit and provide management of data, flexibility and security for our tenants,” said Gerald Phillips, vice president of Land Management for the ERC.
Embee Technologies has risen to the top of the information technology industry by specializing in providing solutions by design. Embee does not offer it clients a short-term technology solution, but instead takes into consideration the dynamic nature of an organization and its long-term goals. Once identified, Embee designs a solution that will grow along with the organization and adapt to the ever-changing needs it will face over time.
