Billings, MT–Vision Net, Inc., a Montana-based telecommunications solution provider, is hosting an open house with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new data center at 1030 Central Avenue in Billings on Friday, September 9, from 11 am to 1 pm.

Because this is a highly secure facility, tour reservations are requested at www.vision.net/openhouse.
Data centers are facilities that centralize a company’s IT operations and equipment at an offsite location. With the advent of edge computing—which brings computation and data storage closer to the customer to save bandwidth, increase response times, and bolster security—the demand for these centers has grown exponentially. At its most basic level, a data center provides valuable “real estate” for a company’s most critical IT components, including routers, storage systems, firewalls, and servers.
Vision Net’s 1030 Central Data Center boasts 24,000 square feet with dry pipe fire suppression and zoned heat/smoke detection, a floor loading capacity of 200+ pounds per square foot, a redundant HVAC system with hot/cold isle configuration, and a shipping and receiving area with two loading docks. Other vital features include:
- – Multi-factor Security with (2FA – 3FA) Two-Factor -Three Factor Authentication, Burglar Alarm, motion intrusion detection alarm systems, and CCTV cameras
- – 24-hour Customer Access and around-the-clock “remote hands” assistance and (NOC) Network Operation Center support.
- – Diverse Network Connectivity to multiple carriers, and carrier neutrality
- – Highly reliable commercial power with redundant ups and generator back-up
- – Compliances include System Organizational Controls (SOC 1 Type 2) and PCI DSS SAQ Compliant.
Vision Net Interim CEO Gary Evans is pleased to welcome the community to 1030 Central. “Vision Net’s new data center expands our suite of solutions to deliver a more comprehensive, end-to-end customer experience for clients across the country and around the world,” he said. “As a Montana-based firm, part of our mission is to fuel growth throughout our state. 1030 Central delivers on this promise, ensuring area businesses have access to the most innovative solutions available today.
The new data center was acquired as part of Vision Net’s recent acquisition of iConnect Montana.
