Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) has elected Avaya's next-generation solutions to secure its network infrastructure.

Bapco will deploy Avaya's fabric networking technology to power the corporate network across its locations, allowing the company to securely add services and devices in this Internet of Things (IoT) era. The technology will give Bapco a future-proof infrastructure that automates and simplifies deployment of new services while it reduces the potential for human error, outages and negative impacts on business processes.

The new network infrastructure will provide connectivity for services including, voice, data, CCTV, video and digital signage. Accordingly, Bapco requires a networking platform that is secure, flexible, scalable and robust, and capable of separating applications using the same physical network, as well as taking advantage of emerging trends, such as cloud, mobility and the IoT.

Avaya's SDN Fx fabric networking enables the company to use end-to-end hypersegmentation within their network to create separate or ‘stealth' traffic lanes for select services and applications. This also, provides the elasticity needed to protect the ‘everywhere perimeter' that comes with the increase in mobile devices and connected ‘Things'.

Mohammed Areff, VP, Avaya Middle East and Turkey, Avaya, said: "Avaya's next-generation SDN-Fx technology is continuing to make inroads with some of the most iconic companies in the region, and we are proud to be working with an industry leader and innovator such as Bapco.

"This project symbolises our commitment to Bahrain, and highlights the importance to us of this key growth market. By working closely with Bapco, we can play our part in Bahrain's economic development, while helping Bapco deliver the next-generation solutions that will help it take its business into the future."
