The Manufax IT network infrastructure was due for a refresh and there were some major ongoing issues that were seriously impacting on operations:
A thorough audit of the existing IT infrastructure was followed by a project to maintain and re-configure systems including the replacement of several existing switches with Cisco SG220’s to improve their network operating speeds.
Replacement of the slow existing broadband with a wireless broadband link from Metronet supported by corporate grade SLA. It has the flexibility to increase/decrease speeds dependent on demand which produces cost savings during low demand periods.
