Indiana Fiber Network, LLC in Partnership with Beck’s Hybrids Releases Rural Fiber Broadband Customer Case Study

Indiana Fiber Network, LLC (IFN), the leading Indiana statewide Network Service Provider announces an enterprise customer business case study.  The business case study provides a customer synopsis of Beck’s Hybrids’ challenges, and alternatives experienced in gaining access to IFN’s fiber broadband in rural Indiana.

One additional component of the case study focuses on Customer Provided Access to carriers and communication providers.  “Customer Provided Access allows the customer to decide which access provider will deliver carrier services to their location.  Since IFN has interconnections with all major carriers, this will provide significant cost savings for the customer.  This is actually hard to explain to clients until they experience the business benefit of it,” said IFN Vice President of Sales and Marketing, August Zehner.

The customer case study timeline starts in 2008 when Beck’s Hybrids was poised for rapid growth and needed to significantly upgrade their telecommunications and Internet broadband capacity.  “We were struggling to find good bandwidth options at our rural location,” said Brad Fruth, Manager of Information Services at Beck’s Hybrids.  The case study covers how IFN enables Beck’s Hybrids access to very scalable broadband service and addresses their business needs.

Over the past six years, Beck’s Hybrids and IFN have partnered to keep the expansion of Beck’s communications capabilities on pace with their aggressive growth strategy.  “IFN was able to add considerable value to the relationship with Beck’s by cooperating with our broad partner network,” said Kelly Dyer, IFN President and CEO.
