Comcast Business today announced that Natera, Inc., a leader in non-invasive genetic testing, has upgraded its Comcast Business Ethernet services to more efficiently run its portfolio of genetic tests.

Natera, which helps families identify and manage genetic diseases, is pioneering next-generation accuracy and reliability with tests ranging from preimplantation genetic diagnosis for in vitro fertilization to revolutionary advances in the field of non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). The company has experienced dramatic growth over the past 18 months. With this growth came an increased demand for fast and scalable broadband Internet. Natera turned to Comcast Business and now has the bandwidth capacity to operate faster and more efficiently.

“Natera’s business of processing genome-scale data requires fast and reliable Internet access. And when our business grew exponentially and we needed more bandwidth, Comcast responded quickly," said Jonathan Sheena, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Natera.

Natera upgraded its fiber based connection from 50Mbps to 200Mbps with Comcast Business, so the company has a fast, secure and scalable Ethernet connection. In addition, Natera recently expanded to 200Mbps circuits, an increase of nearly 200 percent.

“Scalable, reliable, and efficient solutions are critical for growing companies in today’s digital environment,” said Ted Girdner, Vice President of Comcast Business for Comcast’s California Region. “Natera is providing critical genetic testing services, and we’re pleased to provide a solution that enhances their ability to offer these important, next-generation tests to patients.”
