Fusion has secured a $6.5 million cloud solutions agreement to provide SD-WAN, unified threat management and fully redundant internet access to a major retailer operating across the U.S. The agreement is expected to grow to more than $8 million over three years.
The retailer cited Fusion’s expertise in implementing advanced services across multiple distributed locations, its unique ability to customize solutions to meet the specialized requirements of a key vertical, and its flexibility in developing an aggressive project plan to meet a demanding installation schedule.
A key differentiator for the retailer was Fusion’s strength as a single source cloud solutions provider. Fusion delivers a full complement of advanced cloud communications applications over a secure, robust and application-aware nationwide network.
The retailer was further impressed by Fusion’s dedicated support programs, and expressed its confidence in Fusion’s nimble, experienced technology team. Reliance on Fusion’s fully managed solution will allow the enterprise to better focus on its own core business.
“Large enterprises are increasingly recognizing the clear advantages of partnering with a single source cloud services provider,” said Dan Foster, Fusion’s chief revenue officer. “Unlike so many providers who offer either communications applications or the network that delivers and supports them, Fusion provides a fully integrated solution, offering everything a company needs to securely and safely connect, communicate and collaborate through the cloud.
“Fusion’s SD-WAN solution, combined with our advanced cloud communications platform technology, controls quality with end to end managed service and guarantees delivery of business-critical applications with always-on, always available service,” Foster continued.
