Disaster Strikes AT&T, FTI Helps
When AT&T decided to update its nationwide Network Control Centers network (NCCs) it evaluated several candidates before selecting FTI for the contract. “I had worked with the key personnel at FTI before,” said Tuffy Morgan, the NCCs project manager, “and always found them to be exceptionally perseverant, quality-conscious and service-oriented.” Within four months, the FTI staff replaced AT&T’s legacy network with 16 Sun Microsystems mid-range file servers, six high-end enterprise servers and more than 2,200 entry level workstations. The new configuration reduced desk-top-to-server ratio from 125:1 to 1,000:1 without decreasing network performance.
AT&T saved money not only on the purchase price but also on continuing maintenance and support costs, according to Morgan. “FTI’s flawless handling of this massive undertaking in just a short four-month period was beyond AT&T’s expectations.” Delighted with FTI’s execution of this project, AT&T executives presented the company with a special award for outstanding performance. The installed network provides smooth, stable service for AT&T customers across the United States.
