Founded in 2004 and headquartered in East Hartford, the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. (CCAT) is a nonprofit organization that advances innovation in IT strategies, applied technologies, energy solutions, career development and STEM education.

CCAT delivers a full-range of enterprise-grade IT services including co-location, hosting, and applications services (VoIP, video) to hundreds of municipalities, schools, public libraries, government agencies, and nonprofits.

CCAT appreciated the guidance received from the Alcatel-Lucent presales engineers who helped to design the solution.

La solution Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise nous permet de gérer une grande variété d’applications telles que la gestion du dossier patient, des applications bureautiques et biomédicales. Nous avons désormais un contrôle total de tous les accès au réseau interne, filaires ou sans fil.
