COSTA MESA, CA, April 13, 2009 – MegaPath Inc., the leading provider of managed IP data, voice, and security services in North America, today announced that the company is enabling One Source Talent, a national casting agency, to support voice and data communications and transmit video files between its seven offices and national data center. One Source Talent is using MegaPath’s T1 access and SSL VPN with MPLS and Managed Security Services.
MegaPath’s MPLS network ensures Quality of Service (QoS) for all of One Source Talent’s sites, increasing speed and reliability of communications while reducing latency. This provides the superior performance One Source Talent requires to support its voice, video and Web-based applications. In addition, MegaPath’s Managed Security Services that includes anti-virus, firewall and intrusion prevention protects all locations without requiring onsite resources to manage each of these applications.
“By leveraging one vendor to deliver secure, high-quality connectivity and communications services, we are assured a single point of accountability as well as a cohesive, integrated solution that supports all of our requirements,” said Nowfal Akash, Chief Technology Officer at One Source Talent. “Because a lot of our traffic travels between offices, MegaPath’s MPLS core is critical to helping ensure the security and performance of our communications and data transmissions. Since implementing MegaPath we have been able to increase overall productivity without significantly impacting our budgets, which is a huge benefit in the current economy.”
One Source Talent is leveraging MegaPath to support its video applications, enabling its personnel to easily share talent footage and increasing security. Using MegaPath, the One Source Talent IT department can view surveillance footage at each office remotely to help ensure the physical security of all locations. The company also leverages the network to support video streaming and transfers between offices, allowing its clients and staff to share casting videos.
MegaPath’s completely integrated Wide Area Network services allows One Source Talent’s IT department to access all locations and terminals nationwide from its data center, simplifying desktop support and troubleshooting. This centralized access combined with MegaPath’s fully-managed services removes much of the management burden from the IT department and reduces onsite resource requirements.
“MegaPath’s fully managed services provide our customers with the performance, reliability and security they require to run and grow their businesses, while also delivering the flexibility to add new locations without significant up front investments,” said Dan Foster, Senior Vice President of Sales at MegaPath. “With out private MPLS core network, companies like One Source Talent can easily support their voice over IP applications over the same network they transfer video without worrying about call quality or packet loss.”
