Law Firm Chooses FatPipe SD-WAN Solution
Firm Uses FatPipe SD-WAN Technology to Achieve Reliability & Redundancy for Its VPN & VoIP Applications by Augmenting MPLS With Dedicated Internet Connections
SALT LAKE CITY, UT–(Marketwired – August 27, 2015) – A leading law firm well known for its public service and pro bono advocacy has chosen FatPipe SD-WAN technology. With over 450 lawyers specialized in litigation and corporate transactions supporting multinational corporations, wide area network (WAN) connectivity is crucial for the firm.
As an integral part of its communications system, the firm deploys a wide variety of services and applications over its WAN. They utilized MPLS circuits to support the primary WAN needs and were looking for a way to increase bandwidth and WAN reliability. The firm did not want to incur the exorbitant costs of additional MPLS circuits. Through extensive research on how to accomplish its objective, the law firm chose FatPipe’s SD-WAN technology.
“We decided to go with FatPipe SD-WAN because we were looking to increase bandwidth, balance load, and have a failover solution using MPLS and Internet connections. FatPipe gave us the flexibility we were looking for, using both private and public lines,” said the Senior Networking Engineer.
The firm combines MPLS circuits and 100 Mbps connections using FatPipe SD-WAN technology at its New York and Washington DC sites, along with two FatPipe devices setup in automatic unit failover mode at its headquarters located in Chicago. It runs many of its applications originating from the corporate office in Chicago, including payroll, accounting and extranets, which is why it has the failover unit cluster. Every office has its own data center and local Exchange servers to support email and local file exchanges such as litigation support applications.
An IPSec VPN tunnel was setup between the offices as an alternative path if the MPLS goes down. Utilizing FatPipe policy routing tools, the firm runs VoIP and backups on the MPLS, while the day-to-day data transfers, emails, and Intranets for clients are active on its VPN using the 100 Mbps Internet connections.
“FatPipe has met our objectives indefinitely,” said the Senior Networking Engineer. “It works beautifully. We have experienced a few circuit failures, and none of our end-users noticed because of FatPipe’s automatic failover. Management is easy too.”
The team also enjoys an excellent working relationship with FatPipe’s technical support staff, knowing that they are available whenever they have questions.
“FatPipe’s SD-WAN technology has performed above our expectations, with no failure whatsoever since deployment,” he added.
