City Improves Network Agility and Cuts Complexity
California's economy has placed extra-ordinary pressure on local governments to tighten their budgets, streamline and reduce costs wherever possible, without affecting services. Their challenges are to Update network switching infrastructure to achieve greater scalability, gaining additional value from hardware investments and reducing network infrastructure and administrative costs. They chose Cisco Nexus 5500 and 2200 Series Switches deliver Fiber Channel and Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) with compact form factor. The results of deploying Cisco were reduced in-rack cable counts by more than 70 percent, eliminated complexity, reducing total number of network switches by more than 50 percent and lowered Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
