Fusion has announced that the company was recently awarded a three year, $165,000 contract to provide its award-winning cloud communications and cloud connectivity solutions to a large state government corporation. The Authority, which is mandated to ensure safe, reliable, and convenient bridge crossings for millions of residents and visitors, cited Fusion's ability to integrate its communications solutions with a safe, reliable connection to the cloud, delivering quality of service and a single contract, point of contact and invoice. The Authority also cited Fusion's robust national network, local presence for on-site support and enhanced, cost-effective feature set as important reasons for its selection. The award reflects Fusion's increasing success in serving the government sector.

"The selection process was rigorous, reflecting the trust that millions of people place in the Authority to protect the integrity of the many bridges linking communities across the state. Fusion was gratified to have been selected over multiple potential providers through the intensive bid process. The Authority was particularly impressed by our high value, cost-effective communications solutions, our flexibility in meeting the specialized regulatory requirements of a state authority, and our ability to provide local support while maintaining a truly diverse national network," said Russell P. Markman, president of business services, Fusion.

"The Authority's challenge was to upgrade its legacy, premise-based communications infrastructure in order to significantly improve its mission-critical communications, driving increases in productivity while protecting taxpayer investments. Invoking the public trust, the Authority expressed its confidence in Fusion to migrate its communications safely to the cloud. We were pleased to have the opportunity to deliver a secure single source cloud solution that will scale with the Authority's future communications needs," Markman added.
