The Challenge:

  • Chronic network outages on primary connection
  • Secondary connection unable to handle bandwidth
  • Strained the relationship with the managed network company
  • Want their current applications moved to the cloud

The Goal:

Provide a primary/secondary solution with a better experience and prepare the network to handle cloud usage:

  • Provide the Client one partner that could advise on strategy and solutions for company’s entire data and voice network.
  • Move the management of the premise routers and hardware to a carrier.
  • Move mission critical applications to carrier grade, redundant cloud facilities.
  • Provide bandwidth options that were more suited to the Client’s needs.
  • Improve the Client’s experience.

The Result:

Cynergy chose to leverage the different strengths of two carriers. One with a reputation of network reliability and redundancy and the other’s reputation for managing equipment and implementing cloud hosting.

  • Deployed managed firewalls to all locations for edge management.
  • Configured application based route optimization.
  • Provided a layer 2 VPLS fiber solution with fail over capabilities.
  • One companywide calling plan with hosted voice.
  • Cynergy project managed both carrier deployments for the Client.

Required Areas of Expertise:

This engagement leveraged Cynergy’s complex network design, voice (SIP), collocation & cloud services experience.
