J.D. Garber Furniture Converges Voice and Data Networks with XO MPLS IP-VPN

XO Connects 13 Sites for Leading Home Furnishings Company across Greater Philadelphia-Tri-State Area for VoIP and Data

RESTON, Va., Aug. 20 /- XO Communications, a leading provider of 21st century communications for businesses and communications carriers, today announced the completion of a 13-site MPLS- based IP-VPN solution for J.D. Garber Furniture. J.D. Garber Furniture operates 13 home furnishings stores under the Lane Home Furnishings and D&D Home Furnishings brands across the greater Philadelphia, southern New Jersey and Wilmington, Delaware metro area.

J.D. Garber Furniture has converged separate voice and data networks into a single converged IP infrastructure using XO MPLS IP-VPN. The private wide area network designed by XO supports both IP voice traffic and data traffic including point-of-sale transactions that are captured at retail stores and are carried over the network to the company's headquarters. The solution enables J.D. Garber Furniture to streamline management of its network to a single provider and establish a class of service-aware IP network to support business transactions and the company's migration to voice over IP. In addition, XO MPLS IP-VPN allows J.D. Garber Furniture to cost-effectively manage the priority of distinct data and VoIP traffic across its network without extra charges for traffic assigned to each class of service.

"We needed a converged voice and data network that can quickly and securely support our migration to voice over IP and the transmission of essential customer point of sale information," said Micah Bosico, Director of Technology and Business Development for J.D. Garber/D&D Home Furnishings. "We're confident that the solution provided by XO will provide us with a flexible and reliable network to help us operate more efficiently and improve service to our customers."
