Connecting and Configuring 42 Campuses to a Central Point of Operation

Our client based in Malaysia was faced with the challenge of centralizing their operations from multiple touchpoints spread across the entire country. Their initial system of operating was costly and complicated to manage. They have 42 campuses functioning independently from the headquarters. What our client needed was for each campus to connect back to the headquarters as the central point. The client’s vision was to have centralized operations, where each campus could be easily accessed via an integrated network. They needed a single point of contact to manage everything cross-country.

Our role in this project was to ensure that every single campus was fully equipped to channel data and enhance smooth operations directly from the central point. We supplied, delivered, installed, and tested the ICT solutions and equipment for the client. The first phase was equipping each campus with the necessary equipment so as to ease the connectivity and communication channels back to the headquarters. This phase involved equipping the campus with routers, call switches and firewalls. We then moved on to connect the campuses to the data centre, managed the bandwidth and centralized logs as well as providing network monitoring as an extra layer of precaution. So as to ensure the system was constantly up and running with minimal downtime, we additionally availed resident engineers to our client, which removed the hassle of troubleshooting any problems on their own.
