Shore Bancshares Inc | 19 Site MPLS Implementation

The Problem:

Migrating from Frame Relay to MPLS, Strict Technical Requirements, Limited Access Options

As a growing finical services company, Shore Bancshares Inc data networking faced an increasingly complex and dynamic set of requirements. Their existing frame relay network had met their needs for sometime, but ensuring security, scalability and performance meant a transition to MPLS.

That sort of sweeping infrastructure change is always daunting, especially when you organizations network and technology staff are already intensely focused on meeting exacting network performance standards on a daily basis. A concentration of rural office locations further complicated things. Service options may be limited, but financial service firms can't skimp on network robustness or security.

The Solution:

TelcoiQ conducted a comprehensive needs analysis for Shore Bancshares. After identifying the service providers that best matched their requirements, TelcoIQ developed an implementation plan in partnership with thier network management team.

TelcoIQ served as a single point of contact; evaluating pricing, Service Level Agreements and detailing network capabilities. Once a service provider had been selected, TelcoiQ managed order placement and installation across Shore Bancshares entire network.

Client Comments:

"Our Community bank's locations used a frame relay WAN to connect our headquarters and nineteen branch locations in Maryland and Delaware. We came to Telco iQ knowing that we needed to simplify our network infrastructure, as well as prepare for adding additional applications like voice. Telco iQ delivered a solution that exceeded our requirements. Their solution ended up being more competitive than even the quote I received directly from the same carrier."
