Hughes provides backup to AmeriPride's MPLS Network

AmeriPride grew from a push cart business more than a century ago in Lincoln, Nebraska, to a multi-national uniform rental service and linen supply company by taking nothing to chance. It's a key reason why the company recently selected the Hughes Access Continuity Service over broadband satellite from Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) to protect its service centers across North America from network outages.

Hughes, the global leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, and a leading provider of managed network services, is providing a reliable and ubiquitous satellite backup network service to AmeriPride service centers in the U.S. and Canada. The Hughes solution backs up AmeriPride's MPLS network, ensuring continuity of network services in case of landline outages.

Reliable, high-speed network backup is critical to AmeriPride's operations since more than 150,000 businesses rely on the company to deliver garments weekly. The company's state-of-the-art RFID and bar-code system tracks exactly where garments are at all times to ensure prompt delivery and great service.

“Terrestrial network outages are a fact of life. Companies cannot afford to lose revenue from a location when the primary network connection goes down,” said Mike Cook, senior vice president, Hughes. “Hughes Access Continuity Service can quickly bring sites on line and protect companies like AmeriPride against significant revenue losses due to network outages.”

AmeriPride Services was founded in 1889 in Lincoln, Nebraska and today is still owned and actively managed by the founding family. AmeriPride as grown into a multi-national organization operating over 150 production facilities and service centers throughout the United States and Canada. Over 150,000 customers receive AmeriPride service every week. AmeriPride is recognized as one of the five largest uniform rental and linen supply companies in North America.
