A Large-Scale Exhibition Center Achieves Seamless Collaboration Upgrade with FS Solution
Our client (hereinafter called "The Client"), a large-scale international convention and exhibition center, specializes in providing venues and related services for conferences, exhibitions, and events of various sizes, including conference equipment rental, exhibition booth layout, catering services, security services, etc. Their current access layer equipment needs to be updated and iterated. The existing network environment that needs to be deployed has about 40+ rooms, each room has 12 to 24 pairs of single-mode optical fibers, and a total of 200-500 ports need to be connected to the network, and The Client uses Cisco DNA Center unified management software.
Customer Needs & Challenges
With the rapid development of science and technology and the continuous updating of technology, exhibitions, and activities are also constantly changing and updating. Exhibition companies must continuously improve service quality and customer satisfaction by updating and iterating equipment and technology, so as to win more customer trust and business opportunities. However, The Client faces three major challenges:
Cost issue: It is necessary to consider balancing the relationship between equipment cost and performance, and choose affordable equipment that meets the needs.
Learning cost problem: The command line style of the replacement device is not the same/similar to the original device, which will increase new learning costs and make device function configuration and management difficult.
Management software problem: It is necessary to select an upgraded device compatible with the original device management software to ensure unified management of the entire network system.
When updating and iterating equipment and technology, the cost and benefit must be carefully weighed to ensure that the final decision is in line with the company's strategy and business needs.
In order to balance the relationship between the cost and performance of customer equipment, FS selected S3410-24TS-P and S3910-48TS switches that meet The Client's needs and upgraded the original equipment. The price is more advantageous than Cisco series equipment; and FS equipment commands operation style is similar to the command line of Cisco equipment, and does not require customers to invest in manpower to relearn, which is convenient for customers to configure and manage in a unified way. More importantly, FS equipment is compatible with Cisco DNAC management software and can be monitored and managed in a unified manner with Cisco equipment.
High-performance and easy-to-maintain networks are at your fingertips
In the early stage of project construction, The Client conducted a large number of market research, aiming to find an iterative solution for Cisco network equipment that reduces costs and improves efficiency, and invited professionals to conduct strict reviews on it. Among many choices, FS equipment won the victory because of its convenient configuration, favorable price, and compatibility with Cisco DNAC management software to realize unified management of the entire network.
The Client's requirement is to iterate on Cisco access layer equipment to cover the existing network environment of about 40 rooms, each room has 12 to 24 pairs of single-mode optical fibers, and a total of 200-500 ports need to be connected. Therefore, network equipment needs to have the characteristics of a high port number, high bandwidth, good security and stability, easy management and monitoring of the network, and good cost performance.
In this regard, FS provides 24-port S3410-24TS-P switches and 48-port S3910-48TS switches, which can upgrade the Cisco uplink Gigabit ports, support the access and aggregation of a large number of network devices, and provide uplink 10G bandwidth to achieve High-speed data transfer and fast response time. In addition, FS switches have multiple security functions, such as 802.1x authentication, port security, and access control, which can protect networks and data from unauthorized access and attacks. Moreover, the web-based management interface of FS switches is easy to use, which simplifies network management tasks, and supports management protocols, such as SNMPv1/v2c/v3, Telnet, SSH, HTTP/HTTPS, etc., to facilitate network management and monitoring.
FS switches are compatible with Cisco DNAC management software
The command line style of FS switches is similar to that of Cisco devices, enabling customers to quickly configure and manage the functions of the devices. In order to better support customers, our pre-sales team provides corresponding demo network management software and configuration guidance documents to help customers get familiar with our device management commands faster and use our products better.
In addition, FS switches are compatible with Cisco DNAC management software used by customers, which can meet the unified monitoring and management of FS switches and Cisco devices, greatly reducing the management burden of customers and providing a more convenient network management experience.
Through the scenario-based wired deployment of FS high-performance switches, we successfully upgraded The Client's old Cisco equipment, meeting the needs of The Client for network stability, unified management, and cost reduction and efficiency increase.
Our expert team responds to The Client's needs in a timely manner and provides comprehensive solutions in the shortest possible time. At the same time, after the project is delivered, we will continue to provide valuable services and high-quality experience to ensure the smooth execution of the project and achieve the expected goals. We are committed to establishing long-term partnerships to jointly promote business growth and achieve win-win results.
It is FS's commitment to customers to tailor-made network upgrade solutions for customers and to incorporate customer needs and suggestions into design considerations in real time. Customer-centric is the service tenet of FS.
As a technical leader of The Client, Radek has been thinking for a long time about how to balance the relationship between equipment cost and performance. However, the inconsistency of management software and style commands caused Radek a lot of headaches. After using FS upgrade solution, network stability, unified management, and cost reduction and efficiency increase have all been realized one by one.
