FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pavlov Media's entire business is built on operating the fastest, most reliable networks to maximize resident experiences from coast to coast, and it recruited D-Link® to help accommodate the rapid growth of its off-campus student communities across the nation. With over 156,000 residents in more than 40 states, Pavlov Media provides high-speed internet and cable television to hundreds of apartments, condos and student housing sites. D-Link networking solutions offered the excellent value, reliability and performance which proved to be the right combination for Pavlov Media – the nation's largest provider of internet and video services to multi-dwelling (MDU) communities.
"This multi-dwelling unit market is one that demands value and reliability. Therefore, we chose our ethernet equipment based on price, reliability and performance," said Mark Scifres, CEO, Pavlov Media. "Not only does D-Link have an excellent technical team, it has great pricing-to-value ratio, and their products are highly reliable – whereas many other affordable products are not."
Pavlov Media's network expansion incorporated seven new D-Link switches – including Gigabit Stackable Smart Managed Switches (DGS-1510) – to provide fast data transfer speeds, advanced security and a Command Line Interface (CLI) for improved manageability. This D-Link network upgrade allowed Pavlov Media to significantly increase data transfer speeds and security, ensuring speedy and reliable internet access for a growing number of residents.
"Because of the CLI, we could pre-script the switch configurations for all our installations this year, enabling us to install 72,000 Ethernet ports with full security policies – all within four months," Scifres added. "This would have taken a lot longer with equipment from other vendors."
The D-Link DGS-1510 Switch is also helping Pavlov Media keep up with its dramatic business growth. In 2016, Pavlov Media installed a total of 72,072 D-Link Ethernet ports – a 32 percent increase from 2015. Pavlov Media has spent years developing a new way to bring very-high-speed internet to hundreds of housing communities, and D-Link solutions continue to help Pavlov Media improve its business productivity and optimize profitability. Additionally, Pavlov Media's positive relationship with D-Link goes far beyond quality products, in that product engineers from D-Link give Pavlov Media the support it needs to plan for the future. For these reasons, Pavlov continues to purchase and rely on networking gear from D-Link.
"We rely on D-Link product engineers to help us define availability and fair value for solutions that aren't even out yet," Scifres explained. "Having the flexibility to talk to product engineers to discuss how to deliver next-generation solutions is one of the best things about working with D-Link."
