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The City of Elgin, Illinois, needed to replace its network of more than 65 outdated Cisco switches, and upgrade its core from 1 Gigabit to 10 Gigabit.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
