Case Study: Creating a New Network From Existing Infrastructure

Experienced Fiber Optics Systems Team Builds Out Large-Scale Optical Network

A major municipal energy corporation in Texas, providing service to over 352,000 natural gas customers and over 840,000 electricity customers, needed an experienced technology partner to help develop a secure and sustainable Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network using an existing fiber-optic infrastructure.

Specialized Team Blends New and Legacy Technology

To accomplish this, the energy company needed to enlist the expertise of a specialized team who knew how to best blend the capacity of the existing technology with the capabilities of the new technology; reliably repurposing the legacy foundation while simultaneously building out the new optical features and functionality.

Several factors were considered. Several experienced solution providers were consulted. In the end, one team led the pack.

Of the all the network architects at the table, Netsync was the only technology partner with a dedicated fiber-optic systems team that had proven, in-depth experience building out large scale optical networks.

In addition, Netsync earned the organization’s trust with their wealth of knowledge around MPLS networking, optical solutions, and other Cisco technologies integral to the project. They were able to provide qualified pre-sales design resources, as well as invaluable insight into the design and implementation of a MPLS network that was secure, reliable, sustainable and expandable. Equally important, Netsync was able to do all of this quickly and within budget.

Other Municipal Agencies Experience Cost Savings

By expertly executing on the customer’s request to adapt an existing network to build out a new network, Netsync made it possible for other municipal services organizations already using the established network to benefit from significant cost savings. This approach also supported the ability to include additional city organizations as tenants, and created future opportunities to expand the services footprint to other nearby organizations outside the city.
