“The availability of a production-ready creative workspace at Lantana powered by Sohonet is amazing for projects like The Bourne Legacy.

Challenge

Lantana is home to a number of media companies and their security and bandwidth demands continue to increase exponentially. Rebecca Hamilton, General Manager of Lantana says “Lantana’s clients are working with some of the world’s most valuable and sensitive content moving bigger and bigger files farther and faster. Our clients face complex working requirements that call for tightly integrating data services with creative workspace into a turnkey production services offering. We knew that we needed an easy and secure way for them to keep them functioning on many levels and a long-term solution for our campus.”

Solution

Sohonet retrofitted Lantana’s Santa Monica campus giving tenants easy access to networking solutions that are customisable to their creative needs. Lantana and Sohonet have designed a scenario where a full range of highly secure connectivity solutions can be initiated within just an hour or even in minutes and services can be scaled up and down throughout the duration of a project. — creating an ideal environment for clients who work around the clock and have dynamic needs. As part of the building modernization process Sohonet successfully transitioned over 40 tenants with unlimited capacity for adding long- and short-term clientele.

Result

Rebecca Hamilton, General Manager of Lantana adds that Sohonet ‘understand the way that our tenants work and they carefully managed every step of the implementation. I could not have asked for a smoother or more successful outcome’.
