Meridian upgraded their core network and phone system with Cisco VOIP. Moving from a capital model to an operating lease model has provided King’s College with a disciplined refresh program so that its students have a state-of-the-art learning environment.
With the help of Meridian and their creative leasing options, King’s College was also able to upgrade their entire workout facility with top-notch, state of the art equipment on a very limited budget.
It is really a full-service operation. Everything from getting the product here, to making sure it gets set up, monitoring it through its life, and then taking it away and replacing it with next cycle, Meridian does better than anyone that we’ve certainly done business with.

King’s College has a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy which allows IT to focus on network and application deployment. Paul Moran, the Chief Information Officer, was challenged with building a state-of-the-art, bullet-proof network on a fixed budget.
King’s College turned to Meridian, their trusted partner, to support them with their challenges. The Meridian team analyzed the current environment to uncover how policies were structured, assessed the current configuration, and made recommendations on what needed to change for maximum security and performance. Meridian upgraded their networking core and phone system with Cisco VOIP. Moving from a capital-intensive model to an operating lease model has provided King’s College with a disciplined refresh program so that its students have a state-of-the-art learning environment.
I was challenged with coming up with a long-term plan that would guarantee that King’s College would be able to continue to support the IT requirements of our students, faculty and staff. By leasing, we can replace the entire campus infrastructure.
