The Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) protects the skies over the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Their challenges are to maintain critical communications links, reduce organizational complexity and cost and deliver new support services. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They have implemented service oriented architecture featuring private self-managed MPLS intelligent infrastructure based on Cisco IP NGN and borderless network design and Cisco network strategy and architecture services for workshops and network design services. The results of implementing Cisco were service provisioning times cut from months to minutes, downtime reduced from days to seconds, new network has near permanent stability due to almost zero routing updates and trouble tickets down by 80 percent and power consumption lowered by 40 percent.
