Infrastructure design enables reliable, scalable, and secure standard IP messaging solution.

When Cisco IT migrated more than 40,000 employees to an e-mail and calendaring system based on Exchange and Microsoft Outlook, the architecture had to be able to scale to support a full global enterprise. This unified communications case study describes the architecture and engineering solution behind Cisco IT's global network migration to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. It details the process that Cisco IT used to design a unified enterprise solution that could reliably handles 12 million-plus e-mails per day and calendaring for more than 50,000 users globally.

This case study also describes:

  • User requirements for multiplatform support, integrated calendars, and an Active Directory infrastructure
  • How Cisco IT designed reliability, scalability, and security into a standard IP messaging architecture
  • Lessons learned from Cisco IT’s year-long deployment
