HACK THE NU – NUVO NETWORK HOSTS HACKATHON IN SUPPORT OF THE UNITED WAY OF HALTON AND HAMILTON

Media invited to attend, interviews must be scheduled in advance.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Burlington, ON— NUVO Network is hosting its first Hackathon in support of the United Way of Halton& Hamilton (UWHH). Hack the NU will identify opportunities, gaps and solutions for reaching the community and delivering local services. The two-day event brings together emerging business leaders, software developers, designers, and philanthropists in an intense collaboration.

Teams are formed on the spot and given 24 hours to hack solutions. Results are judged on:
• Creativity – the “wow” factor of the solution
• Usability – usefulness to solve a problem
• Technicality – the technology used to create the solution
• Scalability – potential for future enhancements
• Mission/business value – solving a problem that aligns with the mission

In partnership with the United Way of Halton & Hamilton (UWHH), Sheridan College’s Honours Bachelor of Interaction Design and several local businesses, volunteers and sponsors, NUVO Network will open its space for a weekend of hacking solutions. Bring a sleeping bag (not that you’ll get much sleep) and witness the mash-up of skills and a passion to help.

“Beyond the obvious benefits of strengthening United Way Halton and Hamilton and the local communities it serves, Hack the NU supports and builds the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, volunteers and philanthropists,” says Zubash Akmal, event coordinator and interaction design student at Sheridan College.

NUVO Network is an innovative, intentional community of business owners and organizations that encourages productivity, collaboration and inspiration. Housed in 150,000 square feet, in Burlington Ontario, between Toronto and Hamilton, it offers full-service space featuring NUVO Taste local onsite catering for all kinds of events - music, art, film, business, meetings and conferences, as well as three state-of-the-art TV and film studios.

Latest Fibre-Optic Upgrade for Halton’s Hot New Broadcasting and Co-Working Space is a Techie’s Dream Come True

NUVO Network will raise the bar in 2019 as a legitimate ISP offering members dedicated cloud storage, internet and secure connections to Canada’s largest network exchange
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Thursday, December 13th, 2018 - Burlington, ON— NUVO Network, Halton’s largest broadcasting and co-working facility is preparing to launch a ground-breaking cybersecurity service in 2019 as a legitimate internet service provider (ISP) registered with the CRTC, offering a true and direct fibre-optic connection to Canada’s primary telecommunications exchange in Toronto. With a quality of service that will compete with larger companies, NUVO could be the first office facility in Ontario able to offer priority service, cloud computing and storage, and end-to-end encryption to its members that is secure, steady, and exceptionally fast.

While a regular internet connection through a national, regional, or local service provider might tout speed and security, in actuality your data has to navigate through an insecure maze before reaching its final destination. NUVO members’ data will travel directly where it needs to go with VLAN augmented security that will ensure data privacy and integrity, eliminating the need for expensive firewall and router equipment. This means no interruption, no security breaches, and no glitches, with high speeds for transferring large amounts of data via NUVO’s gigabit service.

“There is a misconception when it comes to speed and capacity, priority versus shared. For example, if a provider claims they can offer a specific speed per second, this may technically be true, but they cannot guarantee speed consistency on a shared network because transfer rates will be impacted by the number of users sharing the pipe at any given time. The more people using it, the more constrained it will be,” said Shaun Pennell, co-founder of NUVO Network. “We will be able to provide dedicated capacity at consistent speeds without being affected by the number of people allocated to our pureEthernet service.”

Some leading data security experts are concerned with data being stored outside the country. NUVO members will benefit from private cloud storage through an in-house server in Canada.

“These new services will be especially attractive to programmers and production companies who use NUVO’s facilities, but will also be available to the many small businesses and entrepreneurs who call NUVO Network home,” said Pennell.

This technical upgrade coincides with phase two of the reconstruction to NUVO Network’s 150,000 square foot building. The atrium, lounge/gaming area, performance venue and several multi-functional meeting rooms will transform during this phase, as well as the inclusion of a first-class food and beverage catering and café service, all set to be completed in 2019.
