STAMFORD, Conn. – Spectrum Enterprise, a part of Charter Communications, Inc., today announced that the Texas State Aquarium, a nonprofit organization based in Corpus Christi, Texas, is using the company’s technology solutions to enhance its wildlife rescue operations and improve onsite veterinary care.

“Our mammal, bird and marine life exhibits are enjoyed by more than 500,000 visitors each year, and we recently opened the largest wildlife rescue center in Texas,” said Jesse Gilbert, President and Chief Executive Officer, Texas State Aquarium. “The connectivity and communications technology solutions provided by Spectrum Enterprise are critical for supporting our state-of-the-art veterinary equipment and emergency operations center. The communications platform enables callers to reach out to our rescue operations team to report stranded and injured animals, and the expanded bandwidth and internet speed allow us to easily use data intensive equipment, like a CAT scan, to share images with veterinary experts anywhere in the world.”

Spectrum Enterprise installed Unified Communications with RingCentral and doubled the bandwidth capabilities of the existing Fiber Internet Access connections to meet the evolving needs of the Texas State Aquarium and help ensure that their digital infrastructure will be able to scale to address their future growth. Spectrum Enterprise UC with RingCentral enables employees to respond accordingly to inquiries from the public, including urgent calls for wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. The increase in internet bandwidth across the Texas State Aquarium’s facilities makes it easier for employees to manage data-intensive challenges, such as sea turtle migration monitoring, veterinary read outs and water-quality reporting. 

“A reliable internet connection and a flexible, easy-to-use communications platform are prerequisites for most businesses, but these take on an even more critical role for organizations like the Texas State Aquarium that depend on these tools to keep wildlife safe,” said Dino Perone, Group Vice President, Mid-Market for Spectrum Enterprise. “Our unified communications solution allows the Texas State Aquarium to manage its communications platform, users and devices from any location at any time so that staff can easily collaborate with each other and stay in touch with the public while on-the-go or when hurricanes or tropical storms threaten normal operations.”
