Welcome to our newest sponsor, Atrion Networking Corporation
Atrion is a great company and now a great sponsor and partner. We are honored to have them as part of the Renewable Now family.
Here is a little bit about them:
Let’s face it, the world is changing.
Competition is global, business is 24/7 and economic pressure is rising. Traditional business practices – such as productivity, efficiency and customer satisfaction – are more important than ever. But newer challenges – virtual workforces, network security, mobility, quick and Unified Communications - are now demanding our attention. It is no longer acceptable for IT to simply exist within a business environment - IT must drive the business – its process, applications, communications and its success. And it must drive business in a secure, reliable manor available to employees and clients alike anytime, anyplace.
It’s not an easy task. But success never is. And we’re here to help.
Established in 1987, Atrion specializes in the fusion of business and technology. Through building relationships with and focusing on our clients’ business goals, we accelerate business productivity and satisfaction with full-scale customized technology solutions including consultation, project management, manufacturer-certified training, carrier services, telephony, software and application services, equipment procurement, local and wide area networks, managed services and digital, interactive and mobile media design.
Our trusted partnerships and industry-recognized affiliations offer our clients the widest breadth of technology solutions and expertise. Our AlwaysOn Imperative focuses on IT as a core business utility, driving strategic business productivity and customer satisfaction. Our personal and professional focused workshops, industry publications and diverse awards and recognitions exemplify our passion and commitment to ourselves, our industry and our clients.
We used them for a 1.0m upgrade to our computer/network backbone, and drove down the highway, full speed, without losing a wheel as they moved us from our old system to the new one. We also installed a VOIP phone system that is amazing.
You will hear a lot more about them as we go on tour and produce this year's crop of shows.
Also, how cool is this: Turn the Eiffel Tower Green?
"A concept to turn the Eiffel Tower into a giant green wall has been proposed as a symbolic statement of "the reconciliation of nature and mankind."The plan calls for 600,000 plants to be attached to the structure using hemp sacks filled with soil as the growth media. An irrigation system comprising 12 tons of tubing would be used to provide water for the plants."
