With 300 Mbps of fiber-based Ethernet connectivity to the building, the Innovation Center is now able to allocate bandwidth based on the individual needs of each tenant to help support the growing use of cloud computing and hosted services, including video conferencing, online storage, document collaboration, hosted office productivity applications, Comcast Business said.

Comcast’s press release included a statement from Kuba Szwacki, head of technology for the Cambridge Innovation Center.

“The cloud has become the preferred way to store data for many of our tenant companies because it allows them to meet their ever-changing technology needs in a way that is simply not possible with traditional on-site storage and network equipment,” Szwacki said. “For us, having the ability to adjust bandwidth quickly and cost-effectively was a major asset, and the fact that Comcast offered us redundant, separate points of entry into our building at an extremely competitive price made our decision a very easy one.”
