A branch environment WAN with failovers for local resilience for UK engineering firm

An MPLS with a number of branch environments with fully diverse resilient circuits. While MPLS does not provide encryption, but it is a virtual private network and, as such, is partitioned off from the public Internet.

About our client

A leading engineering group with a HQ located in the South West that prides itself on providing a dynamic work environment. 

In 2020, we assessed the technology in place and defined a project for laying resilience onto their WAN networks to support failovers to local sites to mitigate the risk of outages.

The Challenges

U
While MPLS does not provide encryption, but it is a virtual private network and, as such, is partitioned off from the public Internet.
We built more resilience on a fit for purpose WAN.
U
Staff were restricted in terms of when and where they could work. They could not work from different sites or locations very easily or flexibly.
U

Challenges of communication for remote workforce including call routing and monitoring.

Our client needed a streamlined, centrally managed network solution with automated system monitoring, failovers and inbuilt security.

Outcomes and benefits

Reduced network congestion and a better end-user experience.
Omni-channel communications workflows enabling users to improve productivity and visibility.
