The CBE Group, Inc. (CBE) is a privately owned accounts receivablemanagement company that has been in the credit information andaccounts receivable management business since 1933, servingorganizations throughout the United States including healthcareorganizations; financial services companies; guaranteed student loanagencies; colleges and universities; satellite, cable, andtelecommunication companies; utilities and governmental agencies. CBEis dedicated to helping clients achieve their goals with provensolutions, industry best practices and an unwavering commitment toclient service.

CBE was initially looking to do an expensive bandwidth upgradebetween call centers located across Iowa because user access to itsMS SQL-based accounting application had become slow. Afterinvestigating several options, it became clear that adding morebandwidth would not be sufficient to speed access to their in-houseaccounting application.

"After doing our own research on wide-area data services solutions,we narrowed the field to Riverbed(R), Juniper and Cisco," saidWolfgang Weiss Jr., manager of IT Infrastructure, CBE Group, Inc. "Ina head-to-head evaluation in our labs, Riverbed was the clear winner,based on performance and ease of installation and management.
