The client had a disparate setup, which included multiple technologies, processes and vendors across geographies. The resultant challenges included lack of comprehensive security solution, heterogeneous LAN switching environment and decentralized vendor management, which led to operational issues. The network architecture was prone to production outage due to lack of redundancy in LAN design in critical remote sites. The client was experiencing performance issues in accessing public clouds (Azure and SAP).
In addition, end of support devices for network in remote sites needed proper inventory, manufacturer support services and a common monitoring and management platform.
Wipro built a state-of-the-art data center leveraging Cisco Nexus 9000 switches with spine and leaf architecture. Wipro’s team of experts extended the network to Azure and SAP Cloud by leveraging express route to access resources in the cloud.
The new architecture helped the client achieve complete LAN resiliency and aggregation links, and enabled multi-tenancy capability. It helped protect the client from external threats as it could easily integrate with multiple security solutions. The architecture design helped the client achieve better application performance and network reliability.
The client was running a disparate setup with multiple technologies, multiple processes and a multi-vendor set up across geos. Through Wipro’s solution, the client now has a seamless single operating model across 34 countries, a modern datacenter that is hybrid cloud-ready and remote sites that are standardized on the Wipro-Cisco Office-in-a-Box solution.
