Bandwidth Launches New Headquarters at NC State's Centennial Campus

Oct 31, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Bandwidth, a tech company, announced it is marking its arrival in a new headquarters at NC State's Centennial Campus with a series of events.

According to a release, the 13-year-old company is creating products that are disrupting the status quo for both business and consumer communications. From its custom-crafted Voice over IP business phone solution to its game-changing Wi-Fi based mobile offering, Bandwidth is forcing an entire industry to change from the ground up.

The company's distinct, go-for-it culture will come alive across the city over the coming weeks in a series of strategic appearances that will give the local area a dose of that signature Bandwidth spirit including: -Internet Summit: Bandwidth will sponsor the opening reception on Wed, Nov. 7 and CEO David Morken will be featured at the show's Startup Summit on Tues/Wed, Nov. 6 & 7 and the Disruptive Technologies panel Thurs, Nov. 8.

-NC State Homecoming: Bandwidth will sponsor a special 5K on Sun, Oct. 28, which will begin and end near its new headquarters in the former Red Hat building. The company is also supporting Wear Red, Get Fed festivities in the Brickyard, Mon-Fri, the week of Oct. 29.

-Triangle Entrepreneur Week: Bandwidth will give away products such as its Phonebooth VoIP phone service and the republic wireless phone with a series of raffles aimed at budding startups.

-Wired rickshaws: Bandwidth will brand rickshaws in the city center and equip them with "mi-fi," turning each rickshaw into a "hot spot" for wireless Internet.

All this activity comes on the heels of Bandwidth CEO David Morken and Bandwidth President John Murdock winning the team competition of California's formidable Furnace Creek 508 endurance race, known as "the toughest 48 hours in sport." The company also earned honors as one of the Triangle's best places to work, one of the state's top private companies and a finalist in the NCTA 21 tech awards.

"Bandwidth is a company built on innovative technologies and culture, and we want to share that spirit with everyone in the Triangle area - starting with our new neighbors in downtown Raleigh," said Bandwidth CMO Noreen Allen.

"What's most exciting about the Bandwidth story is that this revolution is going on in the Triangle, not in New York City or in Silicon Valley. From right here in downtown Raleigh, Bandwidth is at the heart of it and, as any employee will tell you, our hearts are in it all the way," she added.

Bandwidth has 300 employees and plans to hire 200 more over the next three years - and folks from across the nation are clamoring at the doors. The company offers employee benefits such as 100 percent employee and family paid medical benefits, a 90-minute lunch hour when the time is used for exercise, a competitive paid time off (PTO) package, and rewards such as extra PTO in exchange for hours spent volunteering outside the office.

Triangle Business Journal recently named Bandwidth Chief People Officer, Rebecca Bottorff, a 2012 'Women in Business' Award Winner. Bottorff has been with Bandwidth since 2010, helping the team double in size while maintaining the heart of a startup company.

"We are thrilled to be in our new location, at the core of the Triangle's business growth. It's inspiring to come to work each day at the bustling NC State Centennial Campus, knowing that many of the faces we're passing on the streets could be future employees," said Bottorff. "We're immersing ourselves in local events that draw not only college students but revolutionaries from throughout the Triangle and beyond. And they like the fact that we have the stability of an established company, paired with the soul of a startup," she added. Mayor Nancy McFarlane of Raleigh said, "I am thrilled that a world-leading company like Bandwidth is making such a strong statement here in our city. The company's high energy and innovative spirit are a great fit for Raleigh." More information: ((Comments on this story may be sent to
