Downtown Los Angeles is among the most densely connected telecommunication hubs in the world. A dozen buildings in LA's city center house the world's largest Internet networks, telecommunication carriers, content management networks, and entertainment companies - interconnected through a complex mesh of submarine fiber optic cables, terrestrial cables, and internet exchange points.
With more than 500 networks and carriers operating within the LA city center, one company stands out from the crowd as a leader in bringing the global telecommunications and Internet community together. Eric Bender is president of Wilshire Connection, a facility-based carrier focusing on providing neutral, high capacity fiber optic cable interconnecting the most important buildings in Los Angeles.
Wilshire Connection (WilCon) has a vision to free the LA telecom and Internet-enabled community from the burden of developing a highly meshed inter-building infrastructure, allowing each company to focus on bringing value to their global network interconnections and relationships. Eric Bender, President of Wilshire Connection, is the man behind WilCon's dramatic success in wiring Los Angeles.
