SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION We've been building great networks since 1990. In those days, it was our founder and CEO, Mark Scifres, crawling through attics to wire houses, apartments, dorms and Greek houses. Today we're not just wiring buildings — we're constantly expanding on a national (Canada too!) fiber optic backbone that connects hundreds of MDU communities in more than 40+ states and 140+ markets. We've built a robust network and we're continuously finding new ways to bring our users Simply Exceptional Connections Nationwide. In response to increasing demand for high-performance Internet speeds in student housing, Pavlov Media and The Preiss Company collaborated to bring a Gigabit (1,000 Mbps) of bandwidth as well as Gigabit-capable Wi-Fi services to students living at the Station at Martin apartments in Martin, Tennessee. The Preiss Company realized they needed a technology "facelift" at Station at Martin and Pavlov Media delivered. Station at Martin's network upgrades include: • Gigabit-capable switches • A ten-fold increase in bandwidth • Wi-Fi upgraded to the latest 802.11ac standard • More Wi-Fi Access Points installed to improve the coverage area In addition to the infrastructure upgrades, Pavlov Media installed WebSnap. WebSnap is a combination of traffic management techniques that includes short, superfast blasts of service that snap up to circuit capacity speed. The burst is brief — a few seconds but long enough to instantly load a webpage "The Preiss Company is committed to providing excellent amenities for our residents," said Kasey Munsch, Director of Corporate Marketing. "There is no more popular amenity to the student demographic than broadband. The Preiss Company is thrilled to be working with Pavlov Media to offer this improved network for our residents," Munsch added. "Forward-thinking enterprises are laying the foundation for the high-performance networks of tomorrow," said Mark Scifres, CEO of Pavlov Media. "Students are early adapters of technology and 802.11ac is the newest and best Wi-Fi on the market," Scifres added. Station at Martin apartments are near the University of Tennessee at Martin with 384 beds in 96 units. Mark Scifres Founder & CEO
