Fusion has announced that a major East Coast University has signed a three year, $150,000 agreement to replace its costly and inefficient legacy communications infrastructure with Fusion's advanced, secure, and reliable network connection to the cloud. The private institution, which is well respected for its outstanding undergraduate liberal arts and active graduate research programs, is housed in over 100 buildings spread across more than 200 acres. Fusion was selected in order to meet the university's need for a truly diverse, high quality communications solution that would allow the learning institution to securely access the many cost, efficiency, and productivity benefits of the cloud while ensuring business continuity in the event of natural or other disaster.
The university selected the Fusion solution for the provider's robust, redundant, and diverse national cloud network, which was designed to guarantee optimal network performance. The learning institution was also impressed by Fusion's powerful routing management portal that seamlessly distributes calls across multiple sites, ensuring that the university's communications can continue to flow during peak traffic periods or unforeseen interruptions in power or connectivity. While meeting the university's most immediate performance, network diversity and business continuity requirements, this initial cloud connection makes possible the future integration of additional Fusion cloud solutions, including cloud voice, connectivity, cloud computing, backup, and recovery and secure file sharing.
"Fusion is delighted to deliver a flexible and reliable solution that maximizes the university's control over its own changing service environment, reducing costs in the process and increasing productivity and efficiency. Fusion's advanced, proprietary cloud platform combines intelligent routing features with a real-time routing capability that takes the challenge out of capacity planning and addresses call overflows during peak usage periods or any service-impacting event. Replacing the university's aging, legacy infrastructure with scalable, flexible and cost-effective cloud solutions will future-proof its investments and help this well-respected learning institution meet its rapidly expanding communications requirements," said Russell P. Markman, Fusion's president of Business Services.
