Wilmington, N.C. — Xfinity Communities, the Comcast division serving multifamily properties and residents, has acquired Epproach Communications. Wilmington-based Epproach specializes in multifamily technology, including managed wi-fi and internet.
“Property managers and owners — particularly those in the off-campus student housing space — are seeking box-less, managed internet solutions that more precisely meet the needs of their residents,” says Michael Slovin, vice president of national field sales at Comcast. “The Epproach acquisition earlier this year has allowed us to expand our managed services offering to provide residents with the constant connection they value and property managers with greater control to make managing their communities easier than before.”
Marty Hollingsworth, former CEO of Epproach Communications, now acts as vice president of Xfinity Managed Services. “By partnering with Xfinity Communities, property managers, owners and developers have access to the robust offerings of its advanced communities network for smart communities, internet, managed wi-fi and entertainment solutions to meet – or even exceed – resident demand for the latest amenities,” he says.
Xfinity’s select wi-fi solution includes placing access points throughout a property, providing the highest level Quality of Experience (QoE) through Xfinity’s advanced communities network while eliminating the need for residents to have CPE in their units.
