New WAN delivers significant cost savings, lower latency, and faster circuits.

The Cisco IT India team redesigned its WAN to improve communications between India and the company’s main campus in San Jose, California, and India and the other Cisco sites in the Asia Pacific region. During the redesign, India was added to Cisco’s global WAN backbone.

This routing and switching case study summarizes the business drivers behind the redesign, components of the solution, and benefits, including:

  • Savings of US$2.4 million per year in operating costs
  • Diverse, redundant WAN connectivity between India and the rest of Cisco
  • Significantly lower latency—from a half second to 150 milliseconds
