Constant Technologies, Inc. Provides Command Center for Akamai Technologies New Headquarters

Akamai Cambridge Headquarters

Constant Technologies, Inc., provider of custom control center furniture for command center environments, announces its creation of the operations center for Akamai Technologies' new headquarters at 145 Broadway in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The company’s global headquarters officially opened on November 1 when Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, Senator Edward Markey and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito joined Dr. Tom Leighton, co-founder and CEO of Akamai, to celebrate the opening.

Akamai secures and delivers digital experiences for the world’s largest companies. The physical space Akamai uses to conduct its work is therefore of critical importance. Constant Technologies provided integration for Akamai’s large-format operations center video walls, which increase situational awareness. Constant also manufactured and installed custom console furniture.

Akamai’s new command and control center provides a behind-the-scenes look at what’s happening across the internet. Up and running 24/7/365, the command and control center:

●     Provides a bird’s eye view of the internet, monitoring traffic and activity around the world

●     Shows everything broadcast by Akamai, from breaking news to major sporting events

●     Highlights where DDoS attacks are detected and mitigated by engineers who escalate alerts and block changing attack vectors in real-time.

“Akamai is a valued client for Constant, and we are excited for the benefits its new headquarters will bring,” said Brad Righi, president of Constant Technologies. “We originally met Akamai’s founder Tom Leighton in 1999. He and his organization are forward-thinking and setting the bar high in the services they offer and their approach to the operations centers they use to conduct their day-to-day work. We have been long-time partners, providing state-of-the-art monitoring centers around the world for them. The current center at the new headquarters meets their technical requirements and truly encompasses their corporate message.”
