The City of Boynton Beach, Florida is trusting a new Avaya (News - Alert) network to deliver the high levels of reliability needed to ensure seamless support of its staff. This new network will replace a network infrastructure over a decade old, which was beginning to be questioned for its ongoing reliability.
Avaya's new network is meant to address the concerns regarding the City of Boynton Beach's old network and as such features a new campus network featuring high-reliability Avaya Ethernet and wireless switches that links nearly two dozen public buildings. The new network will also combine multiple existing data center sites into a single hub, saving both time and money in terms of administration and maintenance.
"The downturn in the economy made us smart about looking at price, quality and how long products last," said Laurie Gagner, network manager for the City of Boynton Beach, in a statement. "We were careful to invest in highly reliable, proven technology that will save us time and money and open up new possibilities for how we deliver services to our citizens. The Avaya team has gone above and beyond my expectations, and I am fully confident we have the best partner for the job."
Boynton Beach expects the new network will both lower annual costs and improve network speed and performance. Furthermore, the city will now be able to provide secure wireless access for both employees and guests in city buildings, meeting rooms and popular public areas. The installation is already underway and is expected to be completed during the first quarter of the new year.
In other recent Avaya news, the company unveiled its fourth quarter financial results earlier in the month, reporting revenue of $1.28 billion and operating income of $76 million.
