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
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
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
