HYDERABAD, INDIA: Dimension Data announced that it is working with a global professional services firm to modernize the IT infrastructure for their new Smart Campus in Hyderabad, which will be IoT-enabled with smart lighting and smart parking. The details are not disclosed.


Dimension Data has upgraded the firm’s IT infrastructure with Software Defined Access (SD-access), which enables automated end-to-end segmentation to separate user, device, and application without redesigning the network. It allows creating policy compliance to create an agile IT infrastructure to support the faster launch of business services, and consistency to a large disparate network, improving resolution times. This has enabled the firm to have seamless user mobility within the campus and between campuses. 

The upgraded system also provides higher Power over Ethernet (PoE) to enable smart sensors.

Increasing need among organizations for agile and efficient networking infrastructure, which can be monitored and managed centrally is driving demands for software-defined networking. The current network infrastructure needs to support myriad digital initiatives that can include expanded enterprise mobility programs, IoT, and increased internal application development, all at scale, while taking care of the explosive data growth and an increasingly sophisticated security threats.

“There was a pressing need for the firm to move away from traditional network architecture that demanded higher manual intervention and does not support automation. Implementation of SD-access has ensured the seamless convergence of people, technology, and workplace to improve agility, productivity, and engagement for the firm. The solution will provide a secure and seamless mobile experience to the user, thereby increasing productivity and flexibility, the core of a Digital Workplace,” said KN Murali, Solutions Head, Dimension Data India.
