Managing Carrier Complexity
Challenge: A global property management company approached BlueSky with just two and a half months before its MPLS contract was set to expire. Because each of the company’s 87 properties were individually owned and/or managed, these sites wanted greater autonomy and flexibility to choose the best fiber solutions, as well as robust options for data backup and service turn-up. This would involve managing multiple carriers before and after installation — with no time to spare.
Solution: BlueSky implemented 87 sites with 12 different carriers in 50 business days. We quoted nine carriers per site along with five technology options (FOC, EOC, broadband, cable and wireless). Additionally, our Smart Hands field technicians assisted in turning up the service at 47 sites.

Impact: Our solution provided 10 times more bandwidth across all sites while decreasing costs. BlueSky continues to support sites for escalations.
