World Vision

As a leading humanitarian organization, World Vision's mission is administering aid and relief around the world. Our mission was to help them help others more efficiently. World Vision's existing frame relay services provided data-only access between offices, but did not scale to provide the necessary bandwidth for full voice, video and data connections. Nor did it provide a low enough latency to allow such for applications.

Challenge

As a leading humanitarian organization, World Vision's mission is administering aid and relief around the world. Our mission was to help them help others more efficiently. World Vision's existing frame relay services provided data-only access between offices, but did not scale to provide the necessary bandwidth for full voice, video and data connections. Nor did it provide a low enough latency to allow such for applications.

Solution

Using CISCO routers and Polycom Video Conferencing equipment, Qwest® installed a Private Routed Network (PRN) to provide high-speed, reliable bandwidth between World Vision offices throughout the United States and through partnerships in Europe and Australia.

The cutting-edge voice, video and data over IP network has greatly increased World Vision's operating power while decreasing their operating costs. With real-time video connections between offices, World Vision can more efficiently assess situations, deploy aid and share information with decision-makers and supporters.
