JK Consulting is excited to be the IT service provider for the new Bell Works Chicagoland! We’re one partner of many here to provide top-of-the-line services and speed to its tenants. Now known as Bell Works Chicagoland, the former AT&T research facility will serve as a hub for retail, restaurants, and office spaces for suburbs – all under one roof. The “Metroburb” will have both wired and wireless internet, boasting higher speeds and more secure connections. In addition, we serve as the facility’s source for managed IT services, keeping businesses running smoothly as they should.
From the Ground Up
Somerset Development is an experienced development company focused on creating well-designed and functional spaces. After designing Bell Works New Jersey, Somerset saw potential in the former AT&T building in Chicago’s suburbs. However, the 1.65 million square foot facility has been vacant since 2016, presenting unique challenges. They knew that an updated network was the next step to get the space up to date to fulfill Somerset’s vision. After the success of Bell Works New Jersey, Somerset sought the networking experts at Allied Telesis. Because of the scale of the New Jersey facility, Somerset knew they could trust Allied Telesis for their next big project in Chicagoland.
The Allied Telesis engineers used existing networking cables to build newer and better systems. With an updated design made for the needs of businesses, tenants can enjoy a fast and secure network without interruptions. That’s where JK Consulting comes in – working side-by-side with Allied Telesis to build a facility beyond Chicago’s expectations.
Integrated and Managed IT Solutions
Because of Somerset’s collaborative approach, each process of the facility’s upgrade was met by a diverse group of experienced experts. JK Consulting worked alongside Allied Telesis to learn the network and how it would fit into the facility’s integrated plan. Because each tenant can expect a state-of-the-art system, keeping the network running smoothly with fast and easy access to HVAC and security systems is essential.
Because we know the network’s foundations, JK Consulting can offer residents of Bell Works Chicagoland access to our team of IT professionals. In addition, with our managed IT services, the solution to their problems is a quick chat away.
