Boy do I feel old looking at this timeline...We've been doing this for a long time!
Anyhow I digress - the path to our current network revamp has been a journey full of adventures. We've learned a lot and as technology continually changes, so must we...
Our original network was cutting edge at the time it was originally built, however that's nearly 20 years ago. Although we have made plenty of upgrades over the years, this current project has been a complete revamp to the core design and structure of our network.
Back in the "old days" building a network to cover most of Oregon required multiple physical locations, multiple voice switches, routers and lots of other equipment. That's served us well all these years. However, today is a different world, and the complex spaghetti network (as I call it) is no longer necessary.
These days a carrier can run services nationwide with a simplified, flattened network - and that's exactly what we've been busy doing!
Along with our new simplified flattened network, we've standardized our core service offerings.
Some of the traditional "legacy" services are being discontinued so we can focus on helping our business customers migrate services to the cloud, which opens up amazing possibilities that weren't available with the legacy services.
Below are some of the cloud based services infoStructure provides moving forward.
So that's the cliff notes of what we've been up to getting our network and service offerings as future-proofed as possible.
