Business & Technical Objectives
Lovewell Blake had been experiencing problems such as saturation of the existing outdated MetroVPN solution; the business needed extra capacity that newer technologies could offer. They also required a network that could grow with the company, matching their plans for expansion.
Impressing Lovewell Blake with their level of expertise and bespoke solution offering, GGR were chosen as their new provider. A mixed MPLS solution consisting of EFM and fibre connectivity was installed at the larger sites to increase bandwidth and enhance network functionality. ADSL lines were installed at the smaller sites, providing very little contention compared to previous.
The office relocation project was completed with seamless migration to the new site with new circuits and layer 3 switching installed. GGR engineers worked out of hours to ensure business productivity was maintained and no disruption occurred during working hours.
- Capacity for future-proofing their network for the next few years.
- Time and cost savings from improved network functionality.
- Confidence for future projects and further expansion.
“We were very impressed with GGR, their level of expertise and the solution they proposed. What also impressed us was the speed of their responses to our questions; other providers fell very short in this area. Since implementing our new WAN we have engaged GGR on other projects. All GGR’s engineers have outstanding knowledge and professionalism and nothing is ever too much bother. I would not hesitate to recommend GGR to any sized company.”
