FordHarrison LLP is a labor and employment law firm with 200 lawyers and 25 offices across the US. The organization wanted to improve the quality of VoIP calls and achieve better application performance to ensure its attorneys could more effectively serve clients and function as one firm.
During this podcast interview, Scott Shaw, Chief Technology Officer at FordHarrison discusses the firm’s SD-WAN deployment. With Aruba EdgeConnect appliances at each office, Shaw was able to decommission legacy Cisco routers, simplify day-to-day management and troubleshooting, and boost productivity by ensuring high-quality voice and application performance.
In addition, the Aruba EdgeConnect platform was instrumental in supporting the firm's switch to remote work during the pandemic.
The interview also covers how moving to SD-WAN saved money by enabling the firm to phase out expensive MPLS circuits in favor of DIA and business broadband connections, which also eliminated downtime caused by circuit outages.
