Iron Mountain LogoFor over 30 years, enterprises have trusted Iron Mountain to develop and manage their data center environments with a portfolio of ultra-secure facilities and compliant services. With a need to support multiple access networks for its customers, the company turned to Transition Networks’ comprehensive media conversion solutions. Because media conversion is a key issue for many companies to manage the performance of their networks, Iron Mountain let us share their story via a short customer case study here.

Iron Mountain stores critical financial, insurance, healthcare, government and other highly-regulated customer data in its facilities. So, the ability to provide standard, repeatable and consistent data center services, that are also very secure and easy to manage, is a top priority for the company as well as crucial for its customers.

Prior to working with Transition Networks, Iron Mountain had been using media converters from four different vendors, each with different management and technical support methods. The company made the decision to utilize a single media converter vendor and selected the Transition Networks’ ION Platform as part of its data center design.

Transition Networks’ ION219-x is an intelligent, high-density, multi-protocol system supporting a variety of network interface devices. The system is designed for both carrier class and enterprise network applications where multiple points of fiber integration and secure network management of the fiber interface devices are essential.

By utilizing the Transition Networks solution, Iron Mountain has a more versatile and secure fiber integration system in place enables the company to manage services for its customers more rapidly, comprehensively and consistently. For example, Iron Mountain now can cost-effectively move a variety of circuits around an entire campus, reaching long distances, all while meeting the company’s high security standard.

I’ve used Transition Networks’ products in my customer installations for years. I’ve always found their products, customer service, sales, and tech support to be top-notch. I wouldn’t even consider using another brand.
