Case Study: Swisscom

Superior scale and performance

Swisscom has more than 50,000 servers in six data centers and manages about 150,000 client for its customers. Scale has been a long-term challenge, and Swisscom solved it with Cisco Nexus 9000 switches, Nexus Data Broker, and Cisco ACI to meet its business needs.

Summary

Challenges

  • Ensure that data centers can scale to support different business needs, and support increasing 10/40/100G connections
  • Scale network monitoring cost-efficiently for six data centers and thousands of devices
  • Centralize management for existing and new switches
  • Leverage existing talents and technologies

Results

  • Provided the ability to scale out network monitoring independent of the number of ports, switches, or taps
  • Reduced network monitoring expenses with simpler, cost-effective standard Cisco Nexus switches
  • Solved network issues before customers could be affected
  • Minimized cabling and configuration for the monitoring network

What they're saying

The greatest benefit for us was that we no longer had to think where are we going to cable those taps and everything. This was because the number of ports was no longer a limitation, and the number of switches was no longer a limitation. We could scale out with everything.
