the region's leading ISP
As western Massachusetts' largest and oldest family-owned ISP, Crocker Communications has been involved with Internet technology since its beginnings. We continuously strive to maintain a position of industry leadership in order to provide customers with the very best connectivity options.
A case in point is our involvement with the Massachusetts Broadband Institute (MBI) 123 initiative, whereby 1,300 miles of fiber-optic cable were installed to provide 123 western and north-central Massachusetts communities with high-speed Internet connectivity. Working with the MassBroadband 123 Network from its earliest planning stages, we continue to be busy "lighting" the fiber with usable services for such vital facilities as town halls, schools and colleges, libraries, police and fire stations, and healthcare centers.
Businesses, too, will find our knowledge an invaluable resource for leveraging fiber-optic connectivity. You can feel confident knowing Crocker's technology is state-of-the-art: Our Springfield-based operations center employs multiple managed Tier 1 carrier feeds over fully redundant fiber-optic paths, to provide dedicated, symmetrical broadband Internet connectivity at speeds from 5 Mbps to over 1 Gbps.
Employing state-of-the-art, IPv4- and IPv6-enabled technology, Crocker also ensures Internet peace-of-mind with firewall protection; anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-SPAM services; intrusion detection and prevention; SSL and IPSEC security services; and WEB content filtering.
