It's Time to Give Thanks

It’s hard to believe that we are near the end of 2017. It’s been a year of wonderful growth and change at Eclipse and as we near my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, I think it’s an appropriate to take some time to reflect and give thanks for all of the good in my life.

The Signal Through the Noise

As anyone who has been listening to me for the last few years will attest, I have been a loud advocate of the fact that SD-WAN was going to disrupt the way most enterprises have been doing Wide Area Networking (WAN) for the last two decades (MPLS and VPN’s for the most part). I stand pretty firm in that conviction and Eclipse has helped a number of clients achieve some of the tremendous technical, operational, and financial gains that SD-WAN can deliver.

On September 1st, 2017, I celebrated an anniversary with my team. Over some delicious food and champagne we celebrated eight years of Eclipse being in business, taking care of our clients, and growing as a team.

Like many professional services firms, widely dispersed Collins Engineers needed to meet new client demands without breaking the bank. “Our customers were beginning to require electronic deliverables,” recalls Manus Cowley, the firm’s vice president of IT. “Plus we were sharing ever-larger 3-D CAD files between offices over 1.5 Mbps T1 MPLS lines, which constrained our ability to operate.”

When Cowley began discussing the situation with trusted partner Eclipse Telecom, a larger conversation ensued.
