Boston Public Library Secures E-Rate Funding; Selects One Communications for 31 Location MPLS

NetworkWide Area Network (WAN) connects the central library and its branches to help advance learning and meet the needs of the Boston community.

Boston Public Library’s OneSolutions MPLS VPN network will replace its former T1 speed ATM network to provide higher bandwidth 5 Mbps connections between each branch and the central library. Branch locations will access BPL’s Integrated Library System, which manages library cards and the borrowing, reserving and return of books from and to the library, over the MPLS VPN network. The library’s facilities and systems help desk applications, online subscription databases, as well as a host of other library applications, will also be centrally managed and accessed over the network.

“One Communications was selected for this critical network due to their competitive pricing and ability to meet our data networking needs,” said Bernasconi. “Our history with their ATM network has been seamless – they’ve proven they are committed to providing exceptional service and are highly responsive when questions or issues arise.”
