3Com Corp., a converged network infrastructure supplier, has won a contract to provide Zamil Industrial Investment Company, a Saudi Arabia-based manufacturing and fabrication group, with a complete core-to-edge network infrastructure that will cost-effectively support its growing business.
The 3Com system replaces the existing network in Zamil’s Saudi Arabian headquarters. 3Com claims that its core-to-edge network will provide increased reliability, centralized manageability and price/performance. Based on high-performance multi-layer 10Gb 3Com Switch S7900Es at the core, the network has an access layer of stackable 3Com Switch 5500s, and 3Com Switch 4800s at the edge.
The whole infrastructure is managed by 3Com Intelligent Management Center (IMC), which centralizes and simplifies network management, reducing administration costs and increasing business efficiency.
Mahmoud El-Ali, Middle East general manager of 3Com, said: 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.
