The Challenge:

  • Company received licenses to operate in the state of New York. They were given 150 days to be operational with product on the shelf.
  • Multiple locations, not all within the same footprint.
  • No existing infrastructure, ‘greenfield’ engagement.
  • Company had no IT, network or telecom expertise or personnel.
  • Department of Health had specific requirements: 100% uptime, offsite patient storage compliance, security, video, etc.
  • Client wanted all services managed, only wanted to hire personnel to run their core business.

The Goal:

Find services and providers to meet the strict requirements, but still be able to deliver quickly with ongoing maintenance and support provided.

  • Provide a secure, redundant network over multiple locations.
  • Strict security, particularly around internet access.
  • Allow for high-bandwidth video transport.
  • Cloud data storage with carrier-grade redundancy and back-ups.
  • A voice solution with flexibility for fast growth and expansion without complexity.
  • All services must be 100% managed, Client has no time or desire to manage it going forward.
  • Entire project must be completed in under 150 days.

The Result:

Cynergy chose to design a multi-provider solution to leverage specific strengths of each. One with a reputation of network reliability, another was best at handling equipment, routing, and cloud hosting.

  • Deployed a fully meshed MPLS network between all the locations for data and video transport.
  • Used network-based managed firewalls to secure internet access from all locations.
  • Sourced 3 distinct providers for each facility (each with their own diverse path).
  • Sourced a managed service provider to install, configure and manage local switches and routers and to provide tertiary routes across all 3 providers.
  • Engaged a Tier 4 cloud provider that allowed both private and public access. This provider had virtual and physical redundancy and provided back-ups. Negotiated usage-based terms at the Client’s request.
  • Deployed a hosted PBX provider that configured, installed and managed all premise hardware. New hires had a new phone within 24 hours.
  • Cynergy managed all phases of the project. Only delays were caused by site construction.

Required Areas of Expertise:

This engagement leveraged Cynergy’s complex network design, voice (SIP), security, collo/cloud and project management experience.
