With 23 branch locations and connectivity via MPLS, Per Mar’s WAN model was anything but cost effective. Deployment was cumbersome and costly as they typically had to outsource installation services at their remote locations. The management and maintenance of these remote sites required personnel to travel to each office; adding an additional expense to their already costly solution.
After careful analysis with the Per Mar team, it was determined that a Cisco Meraki solution would meet the company’s requirements without requiring in-house expertise.
The cost savings of eliminating their MPLS network was substantial. In addition, by implementing the Meraki solution, Per Mar realized the following benefits:
- Easier deployment
- Simplified management and maintenance
- Standardized deployment model based on size of office
