Dimension Data enables global professional services firm to modernise its new "smart campus" in Hyderabad with software defined access
Singapore, 21 February 2018 – Dimension Data, the global ICT solutions and services provider, today announced its strategic partnership with a leading global professional services firm to modernise its IT infrastructure for their new Smart Campus in Hyderabad. The smart campus will be IoT enabled with smart lighting and smart parking. Dimension Data has upgraded the firm’s IT infrastructure with Software Defined Access (SD-access), which enables automated end-to-end segmentation to separate user, device and application without redesigning the network.
Through Software Defined Access, Dimension Data has enabled the firm to have seamless user mobility within the campus and between campuses. SD-access allows to create policy compliance to create an agile IT infrastructure to support faster launch of business services, and consistency to a large disparate network, improving resolution times. The upgraded system also provides higher Power over Ethernet (PoE) to enable smart sensors.
The India software defined networking market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 36% during 2017 – 2022, according to Research and Markets. Increasing need among organisations for agile and efficient networking infrastructure, which can be monitored and managed centrally is driving this growth. The current network infrastructure needs to support myriad digital initiatives that can include expanded enterprise mobility programs, Internet of Things (IoT), and increased internal application development, all at scale. These efforts are taking place against a backdrop of explosive data growth and a growing, more sophisticated security threat landscape.
“There was an impending need for the firm to move away from traditional network architecture that demanded higher manual intervention and does not support automation. Dimension Data’s implementation of SD-access has ensured the seamless convergence of people, technology and workplace to improve agility, productivity and engagement for the firm. The solution will provide a secure and seamless mobile experience to the user, thereby increasing productivity and flexibility, the core of a Digital Workplace,” said KN Murali, Solutions Head, Dimension Data India.
