3Com to provide new core to edge infrastructure for Saudi congolomerate
Manufacturing and fabrication conglomerate Zamil Industrial Investment Company (Zamil Industrial), has selected 3Com for its new core-to-edge network.
The network, which will replace the existing infrastructure at the company’s Damman head quarters, will provide a more powerful network to support company growth, at the same time as reducing the cost of network administration.
Zaki Sabbagh, CIO, Zamil Industrial said: “We were impressed, not only by the industry-leading price/performance of 3Com’s solution, but by 3Com’s responsiveness during the tendering process, as well as their ability to demonstrate the superiority of their products and services compared to the competition.
“In today’s global economic environment, we felt the need to re-evaluate our supplier relationship with an eye toward lowering our total cost of ownership and increasing our network performance and reliability. The 3Com solution proved that they really could help us reach that goal,” he added.
The network consists of 3Com multi-layer 10Gb 3Com Switch S7900Es at the core, with an access layer of stackable 3Com Switch 5500s and 3Com Switch 4800s at the edge. 3Com’s Intelligent Management Centre (IMC), provides easy to use management of the whole infrastructure.
Mahmoud El-Ali, 3Com Middle East General Manager commented: “Once again, 3Com has shown that our comprehensive portfolio of fresh new networking solutions delivers added value for our customers. With one common operating system and a single unified management platform in IMC, we help our customers reduce their total costs and increase the efficiency of their IT team so they can concentrate on what’s most important, enabling their business.”
