Transbeam has been busy making a big dent in the New York area in the Ethernet-over-Copper and Ethernet-over-Fiber space over the past few years, and they're now ready to take their platform on the road. They'll be entering a selection of NFL cities in force this year, which will let them start to address multi-location businesses more effectively.
Transbeam has now brought in industry veteran Jim DaBramo as SVP of Sales and Marketing to take their model national. He moves over from UNSi, which was recently purchased by GTT of course, and is actively recruiting more talent for the expansion project. They've already got footholds in Miami and Los Angeles, with a bunch more on the way, all hooked up by a core MPLS network.
Transbeam won't be replicating the EoC footprint they've got in the New York market, of course. At least not unless they find an acquisition somewhere that would get them a similar central office footprint. The national expansion will therefore be aiming at the various Ethernet-over-fiber opportunities and putting their portfolio of managed services to work.
