Changhong Group Deploys Avaya Network to Enhance Collaboration and Productivity
08 Apr 2013
The new Avaya network meets employee's needs for efficient collaboration and connectivity
New platform features high-reliability, performance, and security
Avaya Identity Engines solution facilitates BYOD and further enhances efficiency
Beijing, China – Avaya, a global provider of business communications and collaboration solutions and services, announced today that Sichuan Changhong Group (Changhong) has deployed a comprehensive Avaya Networking solution in its Beijing office building to support efficient collaboration and data connectivity. The new solution has also enabled Changhong to support the introduction of Bring Your Own Device ('BYOD') enabling improved efficiency for both employees and visitors.
Changhong's Beijing office building, named Beijing Changhong Technology Building, accommodates a total of 2,000 employees. Changhong wanted to upgrade its old network that included equipment from different vendors and was difficult to monitor and manage. With this upgrade, Changhong plans to better support mobility and multi-media communications in order to enhance collaboration and productivity of the employees.
Changhong has deployed a full Avaya Networking solution in the building, comprised of Ethernet Routing Switch 8800, Ethernet Routing Switch 4800 as well as WLAN 8100 Series Controllers and Access Points. The two ERS 8800 Switches are deployed as a high-availability Switch Cluster pair in the Core to deliver true end-to-end reliability and always-on application access. Forty-eight ERS 4800 Switches are distributed across different floors, delivering high-performance, secure and resilient connectivity. The two WLAN 8180 Controllers, together with 6 WLAN 8120 Wireless Access Points on each floor, ensure highly efficient wireless signal coverage in the whole building.
With this new solution, Beijing Changhong Technology Building has realized a strategic goal of Gigabit Ethernet-to-the-Desktop, which empowers faster access to web and shared resources. The system supports plug-and-play IP Telephony as well as rich, always-on Unified Communications applications, including voice conferencing, web conferencing, and is positioned for the seamless introduction of video conferencing.
With the Avaya Wireless solutions, employees can work efficiently from any location in the building. They may also choose to use any conveniently available IP Phones as their own extensions, and access the same applications and directory as if they are sitting at their own desks. All these capabilities will help improve employees' ability to communicate and collaborate while on the move.
As more and more employees bring their own devices to work, Changhong has deployed the Avaya Identity Engines solution, to provide the central policy decision needed to enforce granular, role-based network access control. Avaya Identity Engines is tightly integrated with the network infrastructure and provides authorization for wired, wireless and VPN network devices for employees and visitors. A universal network identity is deployed, and people can access different resources according to their profiles.
