The Detroit Pistons have recently partnered with 123Net, a Michigan-based Internet Service Provider, as the leading network service provider.
In a recent announcement from 123Net, the focus of this collaboration is to upgrade the communication infrastructure at the Henry Ford Detroit Pistons Performance Center.
This joint venture will provide the team with tailored internet and network solutions, ensuring seamless connectivity at the facility.
Paul Rapier, the Vice President of Information Technology for the Detroit Pistons, emphasized, “Efficient teamwork heavily relies on uninterrupted connectivity, and our partnership with 123NET guarantees a resilient digital environment that will elevate the experience for our team and global fanbase.
123NET has a strong history of delivering top-tier internet and connectivity services to businesses and communities statewide. We are excited to welcome 123NET to our team, further enhancing our capabilities.”
This collaboration is set to commence during the 2023-24 season.
123Net, headquartered in Southfield, has been a leading provider of high-speed fiber internet, colocation services, and business voice solutions for over two decades.
Dan Irvin, the CEO of 123NET, expressed, “When the Pistons were in search of a local Michigan partner, 123NET emerged as the ideal choice, bringing a distinct advantage.
The Pistons can trust 123NET’s exceptional capabilities and expertise, which extend far beyond the offerings of national providers, to promptly cater to the team’s technology and customer service needs.
We at 123NET eagerly anticipate the realization of this partnership and are excited to show our support from the stands throughout the season.
Detroit’s New Center area saw the unveiling of a state-of-the-art $90 million training facility back in 2019. This facility connects to the William Clay Ford Center for Athletic Medicine.
Also, it boasts additional amenities such as a Plum Market and Planet Fitness, providing the local community with convenient access to both nourishment and fitness resources.
