Suhail Bahwan Automobiles has overhauled its IT platform with a 3Com solution. The company, which is one of the Sultanate of Oman’s largest companies and the country’s leading automotive business, implemented the solution in order to connect its nationwide chain of branch offices with its headquarters in Muscat. The group boasts 7,000 employees and the network includes 15 locations. Each of these comprises service centres, showrooms and warehouses. Suhail Bhawan Automobiles has designated several service centers for round-the-clock operations and deploys a centralised enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. The WAN/LAN solution enables the company to relay information between servers in Muscat and the company’s branch offices. “Our business depends on having reliable connections between our numerous locations,” explains Dileep Somani, general manager of IT with the company. “This network is mission-critical; all business transactions must traverse this system and therefore any solution that we deploy must be extremely reliable and deliver high-performance,” he adds. The 3Com implementation consists several routers and switches, as well as 3Com’s guardian service for constant support. Located at the company’s headquarters, the solution delivers high-performance WAN access routing across the network and its flexibility offers a series of expansion benefits. Redundancy features are also configured to guarantee a constant connection between branches. “Our goal is to assist the development of businesses throughout the Middle East territory,” says Wael Fakharany, regional manager at 3Com Middle East. “Suhail Bahwan Automobiles had specific business aims that required an immediate answer. Our scalable solution will enable the company to not only keep pace with its rapid growth, but also exceed that growth over the coming months and years.”
