MVD lands networking contract
Chamber member MVD Communications has been awarded a $4.1 million contract with the Trustmark Companies.
MVD helped the insurer

saving them hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process
Jeff Black, CEO of MVD
Communications, states, “The Trustmark Companies had a three-year-old
network that just couldn’t keep up with today’s increasing needs for bandwidth
and security. This was the ‘best of the best’ network three years ago. This

The next phase of the project
includes displacing the old PSTN and implementing SIP services saving Trustmark
Companies an additional $3,000 per month.
