AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2011) - Apogee, the nation's largest provider of managed residential network (ResNet) services to higher education, today unveiled a new corporate identity, tagline and web address, driven by the company's growing ability to meet the technology needs of higher education through strategic ResNet partnership. The new brand identity reinforces market leadership and better reflects the nature of residential networking in today's mobility-driven environment.

"As we look ahead towards the future challenges facing the residential network, we wanted to affirm our commitment to constant innovation and to staying ahead of the technological curve. We're still the same company with the same experience and dedication to excellence, but this change for us reflects how managed ResNet service has evolved into an effective solution for colleges and universities across the nation."
"What differentiates Apogee is our demonstrated ability to meet these challenges time and time again while enabling universities to plan strategically for future technology growth and advancement," said Nat Nealeigh, Apogee's Director of Marketing and Communications.
