The need

  • More bandwidth to be able to share large files across offices and with clients.

  • Highly available infrastructure to support business continuity.

  • Access to colocation facilities connected to a solid optical backbone.

  • Ability to easily upgrade network services as their business grows and needs evolve.

As an architectural firm, our files are large by nature. We needed a network that travels at the speed of light. With our new network, we are confident in our ability to adapt and grow and embrace any new technologies or capabilities.
