All the connections and traffic transmissions among the headquarter and different shops are under private MPLS ring and secure firewall network.
When Telekom is upgrading the existing DSL lines to super-vectoring 35b in offering 300Mbps speed, the stores want to benefit from the high speeds but still compliant with the existing network infrastructure.
The retail shops want to adopt two modems in each store, which is planning to deploy over the selected region‘s 1,500 locations. With the complexity of their existing network structure and across the 3,000+ CPEs management, it is a huge task to the client to well manage, monitor, and maintain their connection network and its daily operation. Such as higher capacity server requires, advance central management system, with agile networking devices for backup and redundancy, are highly needed.
Also, budget and time-saving is mandatorily required to the customer. The device rollout should be fast.
