ImageVector Resources appeared today in San Diego Business Journal’s Telecom Companies list, and has been ranked number 11 out of the 27 largest telecom companies in the San Diego County, based on the total number of local employees as of June 1, 2012.

It is great to see Vector Resources, Inc. on a list with some great companies, and competitors. Seeing this published makes me proud of the growth we have experienced in a couple different ways. The first year out we landed in the 11th spot out of the 27 companies listed. I am proud to see Vector growing in a tough and difficult economy.

Vector Strikes Gold at Gold Coast Event

As we discussed last week, Vector participated in last week’s 24th Annual Navy Gold Coast Small Business Opportunity Conference, held at the San Diego Convention Center.  The event was an opportunity for technology solutions providers such as us to demonstrate and educate representatives from a wide range of government entities about the latest and greatest in telecommunications and networking solutions.

Approximately 1,500 people attended and a sizeable proportion of these visited our booth to witness demonstrations of Polycom’s HDX 7000 and 8000 HD video conferencing systems, utilizing Microsoft Lync technology, which provides a single interface uniting voice, IM and audio, video and Web conferencing, offering users a richer, more seamless experience.  We set up a demo including Polycom units, two laptops and an iPad.  We were among the only booths that had an actual, hands-on demonstration.

The event exceeded our goals in terms of meeting and demo’ing systems to interested government officials, and we were very pleased by their interest in our offerings and Vector as a company.

Vector Resources to Begin Deployment of Energy-Saving GPON Networking Technology at San Diego New Central Library

I am very excited to announce today that Vector Resources will soon begin our new project, to deploy passive optical local area network (LAN) architecture, using GPON technology for providing high-speed bandwidth in the City of San Diego’s New Central Library. City officials awarded Vector with this project earlier this year, and have also issued us with a formal Notice to Proceed this month. Furthermore, the Project team has applied for Silver LEED certification, and the projected energy savings from optical LAN technology can contribute to this application.

The optical LAN architecture will reduce overall energy costs, allowing Library officials the possibility to reassign funding for other activities and programs, essentially contributing to an improved environment by reducing the need for additional telecom closets, which can potentially assist and lead us in the Silver LEED certification process. Additionally, the GPON may give Library visitors access to information much faster than they are accustomed to at most locations, including their own homes.

For this project, Vector Resources is collaborating with Tellabs, which offers a long, successful history in developing and deploying optical LAN technology electronics, as well as with TE Connectivity, global leader in copper and fiber optic connectivity, and the supplier of the cabling and connectivity expertise. The experts at Vector Resources will be contributing technical and systems integration expertise and experience with working in the San Diego public sector market, and Vector’s knowledge of E-Rate, the Federal program that provides discounts to schools and libraries to secure affordable telecommunications and Internet access will contribute in maximizing the benefits of the program. Last but not least, the combination of Vector Resources, Tellabs and TE will offer the best solution in meeting the needs of not just the San Diego New Central Library, but more importantly the needs of the patrons as well.

State of Arizona Awards Vector Resources Its First Statewide Contract

I am very pleased to announce today that the State of Arizona has awarded Vector Resources a contract to be a preferred provider to state, county and local governments. Vector Resources was one of 15 providers selected, from a total of 38 that applied.

As Vector’s first statewide contract, this win will help increase our presence in the state of Arizona, give state, county and local government IT teams the ability to turn to Vector for support without undertaking a competitive and lengthy review process. While the contract does not guarantee Vector new projects, it will be very helpful to us as we try to work with more Arizona government agencies.

In June, Arizona’s Pima County awarded Vector Resources a Job Order Contract (JOC), allowing Pima County departments to engage with Vector to work on specific technology-related projects, without undertaking a broad competitive review. Last August, the Mohave Educational Services Cooperative (MESC) named Vector as a preferred provider for MESC member organizations, which include Arizona schools and government agencies, as well as qualifying non-profit educational healthcare institutions.

Vector’s new contracts with government agencies in Arizona, both reflects our expertise in designing and deploying network services and our experience in meeting the needs of Arizona agencies as they strive to improve the services they provide to taxpayers.
