Client: A leading Asia-based electronics manufacturing company
Area of operations: Global
Number of employees: Over 35,000
The client had a complex IT network distributed across 40+ countries and managed by over 100 vendors. This made operations very difficult and cumbersome, and resulted in:
- Poor network performance
- High bandwidth costs due to multiple vendors and poor planning of distributed network
- Inability to meet performance demands from network that was needed for cloud adoption and application migration(Office 365, Data Center)
- Lack of insights to efficiently manage and monitor the network
Wipro, with its consulting framework for network - InsightixTM, and its extensive experience in large-scale project management, global logistics and vendor management - developed a comprehensive plan for SD-WAN implementation with its #WANFreedom carrier agnostic SD-WAN solution.
- Creation of the business case and documentation of technical recommendations and roadmap for SD-WAN implementation
- Analysis of available SD-WAN options, a recommendation of preferred provider, and proof-of-concept study and sample sites. Wipro leveraged its CoE for SD-WAN for swift execution.
- Analysis of commercial benefit including TCO and ROI for the selected SD-WAN solution: Enterprise scale Cisco SD-WAN
- Consolidated more than 100 service providers to three and streamlined contract management
- Provided SD-WAN as a Service business model
Wipro’s #WANFreedom solution, underpinned by most widely deployed SD-WAN technology – Cisco SD-WAN, enabled the client to transform their legacy network to a secure, cloud-scale and business-aligned network environment.
- Due to vendor consolidation, WAN operations cost reduction by 30%, and another 20% cost reduction is anticipated after complete implementation of solution
- Optimized bandwidth utilization
- Enhanced application experience due to better network performance
- Predictable SLAs for voice, cloud and other critical enterprise applications
- Complete integrated security for on-premise and cloud
- Rich analytics for granular visibility into application and infrastructure that enables rapid failure correlation and mitigation
