Tuff Shed Selects AT&T for Expanded Communications Network
Growing Manufacturer Turns to AT&T to Consolidate Network Across Multiple Locations
Denver, Colorado, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) announced today a new contract to provide network services to Denver-based TUFF SHED®, the largest manufacturer and installer of storage buildings and garages in the United States.
Under the terms of the three-year agreement, AT&T will serve as the primary provider of network and data services to TUFF SHED, delivering IP-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) service to the company’s headquarters in Denver, Colo., 52 factory and retail showrooms and 29 retail stores across 37 states.
AT&T VPN is a scalable solution that will support TUFF SHED’s rapid growth by providing the security and redundancy of a private network. Using Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology, TUFF SHED will further be able to prioritize business critical data as it travels across the company’s network. In addition, TUFF SHED will achieve greater efficiency through enhanced accessibility and reliable communications between its various locations.
“We needed a unified network platform to help us streamline our communications throughout the company and with our partners,” said Timothy Schultz, director of audit and compliance for TUFF SHED. “We’re confident that AT&T is providing a network with a secure and flexible infrastructure that will support our business communications as we continue to grow and accumulate new customers across the country.”
Aligning with AT&T’s customer-focused convergence strategy, the fully meshed network will enable TUFF SHED to fulfill the company’s compliance requirements by allowing all locations to support online training throughout the company. Built on AT&T’s MPLS-enabled IP backbone, the network will also enable quick and secure network deployment of new locations, as TUFF SHED continues to expand.
