June Projects Completed

In All, Communicate Better, Manage Risk, Operate Efficiently, Plan Strategically by Mike Abbott

First Service completed 2 noteworthy projects in June:

Installation of a 50 handset IP telephony phone system for a law firm with 2 locations.  By employing SIP technology and the Cisco 0% lease promotion, we were able to provide the system at a monthly investment roughly equal to the firm’s telephone charges alone prior to the upgrade.  The firm will benefit from Cisco Unified Communications during the lease term and beyond, and significantly reduce their telepone expense.

The second project is the first phase of a disaster recovery plan utilizing an IBM Network Storage Array and IBM server with VMWare virtualization.  By moving critical files from server storage to network storage, dependence on server hardware is eliminated.  In conjunction with virtualization, recovery times for the mail server have been reduced from days to minuites.

We appreciate our clients trust in our recommendations and the work they have provided.   Both installs would serve as good case studies for similar projects  – contact us for details.
