The Challenge With 23 branch loca ons and connec vity via MPLS, Per Mar's WAN model was anything but cost effec ve. Deployment was cumbersome and costly as they typically had to outsource installa on services at their remote loca ons. The management and maintenance of these remote sites required personnel to travel to each office; adding an addi onal expense to their already costly solu on. "The high cost of our enterprise WAN connec vity was draining our IT budget. We knew we needed a solu on that would not only save us a substan al amount of money each month, but also allow us to eliminate our MPLS network altogether and free up our IT support staff to focus on more strategic ini a ves. We turned to OneNeck, our trusted IT partner for guidance and support in exploring alterna ve solu ons," said Dan Turner, Chief Informa on Officer at Per Mar. The OneNeckĀ® IT Solutions Answer A er careful analysis with the Per Mar team, it was determined that a Cisco Meraki solu on would meet the company's requirements without requiring in-house exper se. With Meraki, Per Mar was able to eliminate their MPLS network and connect all of their sites together via Meraki's VPN mesh technology. The solu on consisted of head-end Meraki MX appliances at their primary loca on and smaller MX appliances at their remote loca ons. Meraki switches and wireless APs were also deployed across the enterprise. Once the ini al configura ons were complete, OneNeck transi oned the responsibility for managing the Meraki solu on over to Per Mar's IT support staff.
