About this project

We began this relationship by managing their network and through a consultative approach, we were able to conduct an audit on their bills to see where they can save or cut costs completely.

Avaya IP office was installed to connect their 2 buildings with the ability to expand and add resident room phones. SIP Trunking added a flexible DR solution. We upgraded wiring and added fiber to connectivity from all IDF’s to increase performance and improve their experience. The WiFi infrastructure was upgraded to improve connectivity throughout the building to enable the nurses to utilize WiFi phones, increasing mobility.

SIP Trunks and an extensive audit helped successfully lighten their costs by  nearly 50%, even with the new equipment and upgraded IT infrastructure.

Sometimes a traditional solution is just what you need

It is always a good time to take a look at your communications services.  Allied Communications can perform an in-depth telecommunications audit to identify services that are not being utilized or may be more expensive than current service contracts.  As part of the Branford Hills Healthcare Solution, an analysis was conducted, and new operating cost savings were supplied.

As part of the in-depth telecom service analysis, potential savings source can be identified.  Many service costs can be implemented without new services. Our team is experienced in identifying cost savings opportunities and often a quick & simple billing migration can save thousands of dollars annually.
