Flexible Network Design Makes Sharing Ideas Simple

31 Oct 2018 Manufacturing

From a new regional meeting hub, a global manufacturer needed to find a better way to share content.  Since going live with our new network design, sharing ideas with colleagues, partners and clients, the world over, has never been easier or more secure. 

  • Easier content collaboration
  • Streamlined presentations
  • Secure data sharing

supporting business growth

Their new regional hub had two roles. Firstly, it would help them service and grow their customer base outside of London. Secondly, it would provide a space for the UK team to collaborate with colleagues, partners and clients all over the world. In order to achieve this goal, our network design carefully integrated robust cabling, Audio Visual (AV) technology and telephony with a high-speed, secure Local Area Network (LAN). As a result, they have support for all critical applications and the global collaboration hub needed.

Because your engineers worked so closely with our own experts in France, you got an in depth understanding of our goals and requirements.

colleagues around the world seem like they are in the same room

Since going live, global collaboration has never been better. For example, by combining state of the art AV with a super fast network, blurry video conferencing is a distant memory. Similarly, embarrassing delays at the start of a presentation, trying to connect to a network are no longer an issue. Instead, presenters use Barco Clickshare to share their laptop or mobile device, wirelessly, with just one click.

Additionally, employees can choose how best to communicate with each other. Whether by voice, video or IM, with Cisco telephony delivered using CANCOM’s SIP Trunk service.

Now, everyone in the hub can access files and email securely via a VPN hosted in CANCOM Communication Cloud. And finally, Unified Threat Management (UTM), including firewall, antivirus and web and email filtering, ensures their network and data are fully protected against all security threats.
