LayerEight is a fresh name in the Managed Services industry in the North Country and Adirondack Region, and while they are a new name and brand, they are not new to the community or Managed Services. Many of the friendly faces from LayerEight are formerly from PrimeLink Managed Services. PrimeLink offered many businesses in the greater Glens Falls and Saratoga regions with telephone and internet services.
PrimeLink was acquired by FirstLight Fiber in August 2020, but the PrimeLink Managed Services Division remained under the same local ownership and retained many of the employees. Trent Trahan, majority owner and CEO, continues to lead the company with the assistance of a very experienced management team. LayerEight has continued to grow in the IT industry, offering a wide range of services from managed wireless and networks to all-inclusive, fully outsourced IT Departments.
LayerEight is a subsidiary of Champlain Technology Group, formerly Champlain Telephone Company, with 115+ years of experience in the construction and maintenance of telecommunications infrastructure, and the overall fields of communication and technology.
CTG is an incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC) and has continuously offered quality services to local residents within an ever-changing technology landscape. Today, CTG continues to provide communications services to local residents with products such fiber to the home, local and long-distance telephone service, high speed broadband, and special calling features.
