AT&T Wins York Insurance Networking Contract
LONGWOOD, Fla. – AT&T today announced it has won a contract from York Insurance Services Group Inc. to provide a fully managed, high-speed network integrating the company’s 20 locations. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
York and its subsidiaries provide comprehensive claims services for insurance carriers, self-insured individuals, brokers and other intermediaries.
AT&T will provide an Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IP VPN), replacing a “hub and spoke” network that offered limited port speeds. The AT&T network will allow each York location to connect directly with any other company location and at data speeds twice as fast as the old network. The network also includes class of service capabilities, which prioritize network traffic and enable Voice over IP (VoIP) applications.
“AT&T’s fully managed, high-bandwidth network allows us to run our business more efficiently and lays the foundation for advanced applications like VoIP,” said Henry Eckstein, CIO of York Insurance Services Group. “AT&T has been responsive to our needs and their solution will help us better serve our customers.”
In addition, York will have around-the-clock online access to real-time reports on network performance and direct connection to electronic billing and trouble management systems through the secure AT&T BusinessDirect® portal.
