City Requires Around-the-Clock Network Resiliency, Uptime, and Performance Demands


New solution had to be reliable, available, and self-healing.

The City of Elgin, Illinois, needed to replace its network of more than 65 outdated Cisco switches and upgrade its core from 1 Gigabit to 10 Gigabit. The City needed a solution that would provide redundancy, resiliency, uptime, and speed.

An infrastructure was developed that delivers:

  • Dynamic applications, converged communications, and services required by staff and constituents
  • Support for storage area network technologies (iSCSI), providing redundant access to all city data
  • A simple and efficient architecture with critical features, automation capabilities, and management stacking performed across all switches
