Business Need

Instead of accessing data residing on in-house servers using legacy applications, and transporting all traffic over relatively expensive MPLS connections, it was clear the company needed a smarter solution to lower costs and improve functionality and performance. Besides migrating its applications to private clouds and embracing public cloud applications, it also meant going to a hybrid WAN using a combination of MPLS and Internet VPN and secure local Internet breakout.

Besides migrating its applications to private clouds and embracing public cloud applications, it also meant going to a hybrid WAN using a combination of MPLS and Internet VPN and secure local Internet breakout.

Solution

The Tech Firm’s carrier deployed MPLS VPN to the largest office sites, and turned to Expereo to complete the hybrid WAN solution, with a combination of standard and bespoke solutions.
Expereo implemented the Cisco IP SLA feature on every NTU and provided access to Expereo’s enhanced Online Monitoring Portal for enhanced analytics regarding latency, packet loss, and uptime of the VPN tunnels to the six global data centres hosting the company’s key applications.

The service included

• Internet: dual dedicated, high speed Internet access using different suppliers on most of the sites and Cisco routers as network terminating units (NTU). Expereo selected only suppliers with excellent IP backbone performance meeting the company’s demanding latency requirements.
• Equipment: Cisco iVPN routers.
• Professional Services: on-site cabling at sites with incomplete or missing internal wiring.
• Bespoke: on-site support using engineers from local integrators for sites where the connectivity supplier cannot guarantee 4 hours on-site presence on a 24×7 basis.
