Elkins Apartments Chooses ConsulTech to Build Wired/Wireless Network

Date: Mar 08, 2006

ConsulTech, one of Bloomington's oldest technology service providers, and Elkins Apartments, one of Bloomington's premier property management companies, today announced the decision to build a hybrid wired and wireless computing network for two upscale apartment complexes near 14th and Walnut in Bloomington.

“We will deploy both wired and wireless Internet technology to provide residents with complete mobility and complete flexibility,” states Patrick Casey, ConsulTech CEO. “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with Elkins Apartments. It’s an example of one of Bloomington's best known property managers offering cutting edge amenities to its residents.”

ConsulTech will utilize the latest technology for this network, including a gigabit fiber backbone to distribute bandwidth to each building. Within each building, ConsulTech and Elkins Apartments will deploy both wired and wireless Internet access for residents. It will provide high-quality Internet service to dozens more local residents, contributing to Bloomington’s position as one of the most Internet-enabled communities in the US.

“In Bloomington, state-of-the-art townhomes such as ours must include technology, including both wired and wireless internet, and that technology must be robust and supported 24/7,” said Rick Goldsworthy of Elkins Apartments. "Our residents should be able to rely on the internet, and ConsulTech promises to delivery 99.9% reliability and personal support while freeing our leasing staff to continue helping residents with other important needs."

“ConsulTech is a technology partner for many local property management companies”, said Casey. “We are very customer-focused. Our emphasis on service and quality made this agreement with Elkins Apartments possible. We are proud to help them contribute to making Bloomington such a great place to live.”
