Cybertime Network Communications Installs Wireless Services at the Prestigious Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands Center & Gardens in Rancho Mirage.
Guests and Dignitaries Worldwide will Utilize Extended Cellular Phone and Wifi Internet Services While Staying at Historic Sunnylands Estate.
YUCAIPA, CA – Cybertime Network Communications, a local Network Communications Service Provider (NCSP) and Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the Inland Empire (Southern California) announced today that the company has installed a full suite of wireless solutions at Sunnylands Center & Gardens at the prestigious Annenberg Retreat in Rancho Mirage, California. The installation includes extended in-building cellular phone services for all carriers, and both a public and private Wifi system that provides internet access for onsite staff and visitors touring the Center. Plans are already underway to expand these wireless systems throughout the entire estate to provide enhanced cellular service and internet access to future guests and dignitaries while staying at The Annenberg Retreat, the former 200+acre winter home of Ambassador Walter Annenberg and his wife Leonore.
In 2001 the Annenberg’s established The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands to oversee and operate their historic estate once host to U.S. Presidents, Queen Elizabeth II, Prime Minister Thatcher, celebrities and dignitaries.
They directed that Sunnylands be forever used to “advance world peace and facilitate international agreement”.
According to Gordon Campbell, CEO of Cybertime Network Communications, “We are extremely pleased to be working with The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands to provide wireless communications services to The Annenberg Retreat and its honored guests. We fully understand and appreciate the historic significance of the Annenberg Retreat and we look forward with great anticipation to its future relevance in advancing efforts toward world peace.”
Walter Annenberg enjoyed a distinguished career as a diplomat, broadcaster, and publisher. He was appointed Ambassador to The United Kingdom’s Court of St. James’s during President Nixon’s administration. Annenberg served as Chairman of the Board for Triangle Publications that published TV Guide, Seventeen Magazine, and he owned several radio and television stations, including KPIL that launched the hit TV show American Bandstand. Leonore Annenberg was an ambassador in her own right, serving as Chief of Protocol under President Ronald Regan.
“The success of this project has been significantly strengthened by our professional relationship with Acorn Technology Corporation and several key members of the Sunnylands organization. Acorn Technology manages and maintains the information technology systems and data/telephony networks for Sunnylands. A team effort with significant coordination, planning, onsite testing and design work resulted in a comprehensive data network and telephony system that incorporates all current communications technologies,” said Campbell.
Cybertime’s wireless communications system uses a specially selected network of small devices and antennas that will be placed in unobtrusive locations throughout the 200+acre campus. The type of equipment used at Sunnylands doesn’t require large towers, poles or panel antennas like most cellular and Wifi applications. “The Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands is such a pristine and beautifully-landscaped retreat, we were determined from the outset to infringe as little as possible upon the overall aesthetic of such a historic facility.” said Campbell.
Cybertime Network Communications began as a “dial-up” ISP in 1996, when connection to high-speed internet was relatively unavailable. By 2002 the use of Wifi-enabled devices to facilitate high-speed data communications had become widely accepted as a viable means to deliver internet. At that time Cybertime expanded its internet operations and built a high-speed wireless network throughout the Inland Empire in Southern California. They also began to leverage their collective technical experience by offering
professional network communications design and implementation services commercially. Since then Cybertime has designed and implemented systems for numerous Public Safety agencies, City, County, State and Federal agencies, as well as Commercial Business Enterprises, and Medium and Small Business Entities.
A few notable clients include the City of Banning, California, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office, the State of California Courts, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)—US Department of Commerce, and, of course, The Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands.
“We are very serious about what we do. Cybertime has successfully served the Inland Empire for over 15 years, and our approach toward every project is that we are neighbors helping neighbors—friends helping friends,” Campbell concludes.
