Hi3G Access AB is one of Scandinavia's fastest-growing and most innovative mobile companies. Their challenges are to lower costs and simplify data center management and improve scalability, resilience, and application performance. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They deployed to virtualized cloud environment based on Cisco Unified Data Center Architecture and Cisco Nexus Switches for highly-available 10Gbps networking. The results of deploying Cisco were number of servers reduced from 400 to 75, and floor space cut by 75 percent, dramatic application performance improvements, with billing system running 300 percent faster and improved security and record levels of uptime, while server deployment has been reduced from weeks to minutes.
