Challenge

As the RSAF grew and started to move everything to IP, new projects and systems were unable to utilize any of the existing IT environments. They needed to:

  • Maintain critical communications links
  • Reduce organizational complexity and cost
  • Deliver new support services

Solution

Support next-generation technologies to address RSAF needs and technical requirements.

  • Service-Oriented Architecture featuring private self-managed MPLS intelligent infrastructure based on Cisco IP NGN and Borderless Network design
  • Cisco Network Strategy and Architecture Services workshops and network design

Results

The RSAF realized optimum value from its network investment while protecting against technology obsolescence and responding to future IT requirements.

  • Cut service provisioning times from months to minutes
  • Reduced downtime from days to seconds
  • Required almost zero routing updates, giving new network a permanent stability
  • Reduced trouble tickets by 80 percent, and lowered power consumption by 40 percent
