Executive Summary

Cherry Health, an independent, non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Grand Rapids, Michigan is rapidly expanding its services around the state. One location required relocation of their service operations within seven days; however, installation of the private network was a minimum of 6-weeks out. Trivalent Group successfully delivered a secure primary internet connection within 36 hours with the BEC MX-200e 4G/LTE WWAN Failover Manager and data connectivity over AT&T’s LTE network.
