Cabot Taps FirstLight for E-LAN

Cabot Creamery Co., a dairy cooperative in the Northeast, has selected FirstLight’s Ethernet-Local Area Network (E-LAN) solution across eight of its sites.

Since opening its operation in 1919, Cabot has since expanded to 1,100 co-op farms who produce well-regarded cheddar and other cheeses. Cabot has spread its company into multiple service territories throughout New England and Upstate New York, leaving it in search of a fiber-based, private network connectivity solution that would allow for secure, any-to-any unified networking across its plants and administrative offices.

By choosing FirstLight, Cabot will transform its IT organization and implement an enhanced connectivity solution. In addition to their current agreement, Cabot Creamery Co-operative is also exploring additional FirstLight services, including internet, data center and cloud.

“FirstLight’s fiber-based E-LAN service provides the increased speed and reliability that our 24/7/365 business requires in order to support our data, phone and internet connectivity,” said Craig Wiltshire, network engineer for Agri-Mark/Cabot Creamery Co-operative.
