Link High Technologies, a NJ-based IT support and consulting firm, recently announced that it has deployed its own mission-critical systems in its data center. The company is focusing on the importance of business continuity regardless of weather conditions which change dramatically when snowstorms and hurricanes occur.
During 2011, a number of New Jersey businesses were hit as hurricane Irene and the snowstorm in October crippled businesses and services across the state. In wake of the ensuing havoc and damage, businesses in the area came to a complete stand-still. A number of businesses across many parts of Denville and Morristown in particular bore the brunt of these weather related calamities.
In a release, Link High Technologies President Victor Liu said that, “Many of our clients were hit not once but twice in 2011 by events that disabled businesses for a few hours. Some were disabled for several days. We have to set the standard. We cannot consult with our clients on the importance of business continuity if we don’t do it ourselves.”
Link High Technologies has been offering businesses across New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York State secure hosting services via its SAS70 certified data center for the past few years. The company has now deployed its own mission-critical systems which include Allworx Voice Over IP business telephone systems in its data center.
Additionally, the company migrated from the legacy POTS telephone systems to SIP trunks covering all points of business continuity. Now employees at Link High can serve their clients even during severe weather conditions regardless of their location.
Leveraging the SIP-based telephone services, the company has also benefited from expansion options into new physical areas not impacted by specific communications and business challenges. Further building on the company’s business strategy, Victor and his team also went ahead with the deployment of the Allworx IP-based telephone systems in their homes as well as at their Denville, NJ office locations.
