BUSINESS CHALLENGES

Parker Hannifin wanted to implement a high performance and scalable network infrastructure at their recently acquired manufacturing unit with redundant backbone.

Customer wanted no compromise on the quality and performance of the network since the production was linked to this network infrastructure.

 

SOLUTION AND RESULT

We have implemented a redundant OFC backbone working at gigabit speed and upgradable to ten-gigabit, along with Cat6 wired network points. The network was distributed between ten different buildings within the campus.

The core switches were configured in HA mode to provide redundancy. Access switches with PoE capabilities were used to connect computers and wireless access points as well. A robust, secured and managed wireless network was installed using controller and N-series access points providing wireless access across the campus.

With Cisco wired and wireless platforms, Parker have been able to get substantially improved performance with speed and response time with minimal connectivity problems and downtime.
