Our goal, to quickly recover or continue operations in the event of a crisis, will be met with Cypress’ C4 IP solution. We’ll also see expenses reduced and operations streamlined. Employees will have the ability to extension-dial their colleagues at any of our locations, eliminating long-distance and reducing international calling charges between offices.” Cypress will also provide managed LAN services for Loeb & Loeb, including proactive network monitoring and fault management of network devices, transport, and protocols for the firm’s network infrastructure.
