The MedLeh Group Selects AT&T for Networking Services
Houston, Texas, August 28, 2007
AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) has announced that The MedLeh Group, a leading document services company that serves law firms and corporate legal departments, has awarded AT&T a three-year networking services contract. The agreement renews and expands a long-standing relationship between the two companies.
As companies increase their reliance on electronic communications and the storage of documents, The MedLeh Group has been at the center of the data surge. Under the terms of the agreement, AT&T will provide The MedLeh Group with Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) services. The fast, highly reliable network services will integrate The MedLeh Group's headquarters in Houston with offices in Chicago, Dallas and New York. This integration enables The MedLeh Group to converge its critical business applications onto a unified and scalable IP-enabled platform.
"We rely on leading-edge technology to handle massive amounts of electronic information, and AT&T's networking solution plays a central role in helping us keep our customers happy," said Dan Lehane, chief executive officer of The MedLeh Group. "Reliability is extremely important for us because we know that clients' reputations are at stake every time they take on a new case, and their data has to be there when they need it."
AT&T's MPLS service integrates Class of Service (CoS) features and any-to-any connectivity, which helps ensure optimal bandwidth and latency for The MedLeh Group's most critical applications. For instance, The MedLeh Group has converted all offices to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service. The overall cost-efficiency of the solution allows The MedLeh Group to invest in other areas of its business in this highly competitive industry.
In addition to data services, AT&T provides The MedLeh Group with local, long distance and toll-free voice services, as well as AT&T Managed Internet Service (MIS). The AT&T MIS solution offers high speed dedicated access, leading-edge hardware and software, smart-routing capability and continuous performance-monitoring.
