Barrett-Jackson Names UNSi Exclusive Provider of Wireless Broadband at Fifth Consecutive Scottsdale Auction

UNSi's Fixed-Wireless Network to Deliver 80 MB of Secure Bandwidth to Car Enthusiasts, Online Bidders

DALLAS, TX and SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 01/17/14 -- United Network Services, Inc. (UNSi), a premier next generation Voice & Data Carrier providing enterprise-class Internet and private networking solutions, announced today it is the exclusive wireless Internet provider for the 43rd Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction at West World in Scottsdale from Jan. 12-19, 2014. This is part of UNSi's three-year agreement with Barrett-Jackson to provide wireless Internet access for its famous auctions in Las Vegas and Scottsdale through January 2015. UNSi's fixed-wireless network gives Barrett-Jackson highly scalable Internet access, which enables live interaction for Barrett-Jackson's bidders and global fan base. This marks the fifth consecutive year that UNSi has partnered with Barrett-Jackson at the company's flagship Scottsdale auction.

With more than 250,000 visitors and millions of car enthusiasts who follow the auction online, demand for Internet-enabled communications at Barrett-Jackson auction events has skyrocketed. UNSi has increased the bandwidth to Barrett-Jackson as the Scottsdale event has grown, and it currently provides total bandwidth of 80 MB. Barrett-Jackson also leverages UNSi's fixed-wireless network to support unlimited, free Wi-Fi access in its social media area so that attendees can use their phones and mobile devices to interact and share their auction experience via the Web and social media outlets, such as Twitter and Facebook.

As one of the world's most widely attended automobile auction events offering one-of-a-kind collector cars, Barrett-Jackson requires 100 percent uptime and reliable Internet access to help manage its social media channels, automotive catalog, online bidding, and live video streaming. Barrett-Jackson expects more than 1,400 cars to go to auction this year in Scottsdale.

"With the caliber of vehicles crossing our auction block this year, I believe this could be the greatest selection of cars ever sold at one auction in history, so we need reliable Internet-enabled communications so bidders around the world can participate in this fantastic event," said Barrett-Jackson Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson. "We are pleased to once again partner with UNSi because we trust their reliable network infrastructure to give buyers and fans an unforgettable experience by ensuring real-time access to our live auction events."

Fixed-wireless Internet access offers an affordable and scalable alternative to traditional wireline options, and UNSi's highly flexible data services allow businesses, such as hospitality venues and convention centers, to quickly adjust bandwidth without having to install new technology or change existing infrastructures. In addition, UNSi's network gives large events, like Barrett-Jackson auctions, and conference centers the added flexibility to make bandwidth changes easily and quickly, based upon the amount of data usage and event attendance.

"UNSi is pleased to extend its relationship with Barrett-Jackson, and we are proud to help create a unique and exciting online environment for collector car aficionados," said Stephen John, SVP & Chief Revenue Officer. "Because UNSi bypasses the local phone and cable infrastructures, we can guarantee 100 percent uptime while delivering services at a cost performance level that is unmatched in the industry."

Many conference centers in Scottsdale and other markets leverage UNSi's fixed-wireless network to support their meeting and event needs. UNSi serves 16 markets across the U.S. including Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, Orange County, California, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Diego and Washington, D.C.
