Solution Overcomes Bandwidth Limitations of Existing Network to Connect 29 Remote Sites to the Cloud, Generating 83% in Network Cost Savings
NEW YORK– May 24, 2016 – MASS Communications announced today that Oppenheimer & Company, Inc. has selected MASS to support a new web-content filtering solution for 29 of the company’s 85 branch offices. Each location required a dedicated data circuit, and MASS Communications is providing Internet circuit selection and management for those locations.
The solution enables Oppenheimer & Co. to directly connect to a cloud-based security platform.
“We designed and deployed a private tunnel strategy. The network delivers circuits directly from a security platform to Oppenheimer & Co., in a flexible solution that has led to enhanced security and much lower telecom infrastructure costs for Oppenheimer & Co.,” says Darren Mass, CEO of MASS Communications.
MASS provided its managed service solution for these locations and implemented full network monitoring. Without MASS’s multi-vendor solution, Oppenheimer & Co. would have had to contract with multiple broadband companies depending on the local service provider for each office. “Oppenheimer & Co. would have also had to increase their IT headcount in order to manage the deployment, aside from multiple contractual relationships and countless disparate invoices. MASS is able to deliver all the requirements, while maintaining a single point-of-contact for deployment, support and invoicing,” Mass says.
David Hwang, Network Manager, says that Oppenheimer’s IT data needs were outpacing what their current private networking solution could handle.
“We needed a more cost-efficient way of delivering the speed and performance expected in today’s world,” he says. “Not only does MASS Communications communicate and scout out the local ISP providers for us in different regions in the U.S., but they also managed the whole process from test and turn-up, to even providing NOC services. MASS Communications’ service has proven to be of great value and has fit our requirements perfectly.”
Hwang adds that the solution is generating an average savings cost of 83%.
