“We require maximum uptime—because when a bank is down, people can’t get to their money,” Houy said. “We have a great partnership—because Broadview is reliable.”
Houy came into contact with Broadview when Conestoga Bank acquired First Penn Bank in 2006. Houy was faced with some hard decisions. After a review of Broadview services, he knew he needed to either consolidate networks, services and providers or hire additional resources to manage the complexity that the acquisition brought.
The newly acquired First Penn had been using Broadview services and after a careful review of the Broadview history of the service, Brian decided to leave the existing data infrastructure in place and convert the bank’s business voice lines to PRI trunks, creating a meshed voice network.
This new network leverages Broadview’s Frontline MPLS network for its data, Internet and voice services; video conferencing; banking transactions; and to link the bank’s 12 ATM locations in and around the region.
With MPLS, organizations can securely link multiple sites together in a seamless network so all services can run on one network but each service layer can be individually managed for bandwidth and quality. This gives companies the flexibility to proportionally size their connections for cost efficiency without sacrificing quality or flexibility.
“Broadview’s enterprise support is vast,” says Houy. ”If there’s a problem, they take care of it—even when it’s outside their network.”
Broadview’s service, says Brian Houy, is “rock solid.”
