DETAILS

Challenge

Rothstein Kass was moving its headquarters facilities and planning to roll out a voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) system to all of its offices across the U.S. The company looked for a provider to help simplify IT management and standardize equipment across its multiple locations while delivering multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) service with the quality and reliability required for current and future communications needs.

Solution

Rothstein Kass chose the MPLS-based CenturyLink IQ Networking service for deployment at its seven U.S. offices. In addition, at each Rothstein Kass location, CenturyLink provided and implemented Cisco® customer premises equipment (CPE) with ongoing CenturyLink monitoring services.

Benefits and Results

  • With 24/7 needs, network reliability is vital, and the previous provider had as much as four times more downtime than CenturyLink IQ Networking service
  • Improved network performance has been noticed by users reporting faster speeds
  • Ease of provisioning for new users at existing locations and to add new offices to the CenturyLink network
  • Proactive network monitoring and good customer service from CenturyLink enable Rothstein Kass teams to focus on their core business
  • In addition to the direct benefits of CenturyLink IQ Networking service, the VoIP solution is driving approximately 40 to 45 percent savings in long-distance charges
