Nortel Networks Case Study: Hertfordshire County Council
Source: Nortel Networks
Hertfordshire County Council is one local authority that most definitely thinks 'Business'. Its 'The way we work' initiative is designed to enable more than 4,000 staff at the Council to operate like a cutting-edge enterprise, with greater flexibility and enhanced collaboration in order to meet the needs of its constituents more effectively. The council deployed a county-wide Metro Ethernet backbone network consisting of the Nortel Metro Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 at key locations and the Nortel Optical Metro 1400 at smaller locations. The Nortel Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 delivers data services within the building, whilst the Nortel Communication Server 1000 supports IP telephony. The Nortel VPN Gateway 3050 allows staff and partners to access the county network remotely.
