Indiana Fiber Network, LLC (IFN), the leading Indiana statewide Network Service Provider announces that Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company has selected IFN as a fiber transport provider. Daniel Armstrong, Manager of Network Infrastructure at Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company states: “IFN’s broadband fiber solution created business value, and the service reliability Brotherhood Mutual needed.

Also, IFN has fiber built into our disaster recovery provider, Baseline Data Services. The additional benefit of working with IFN made it an easy business and technology decision for Brotherhood Mutual.”
According to Lance Thompson, CEO at Baseline Data Services LLC, reliable network communication is a crucial component of any disaster recovery plan. “IFN enabled Baseline to deliver advanced failover and data protection solutions to Brotherhood Mutual.
