When long-time technology partner MABC began working with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation on a new project, the priorities were to find a way to upgrade the telecom system in the shortest time possible and to diversify the network for disaster recovery.

The task was expected to take 3 days per location, but MABC engineered a solution that reduced the time to just 2.5 hours...
