This article focuses on the wireless area network overhaul by civil engineering firm Psomas Inc. to accommodate the company's growth and demanding design tools. The network overhaul, which won for the company a top spot at the Network World Renovator Award contest, involved migrating from frame relay to Multi-Protocol Label Switching and implementing a wide area file distribution service that changed the way company engineers work.
