Innovative Retirement Group Uses Policy to Segment Mobility Network
Erickson Living, an industry leader in senior housing, is known for its innovative approach to supporting the needs of its 22,000 residents in 10 U.S. states. Their challenges are to provide secure, segmented mobile network services to residents without managing 32,000 Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), which would require five-fold increase in networking staff to manage. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They have implemented Leverage TrustSec, identity services engine to manage secure access on high-performance 802.11ac network and provide instant phone service through Cisco call center technologies. The results of implementing Cisco were simplifies network access needs into one secure, segmented infrastructure, reduces IT costs and provides users high-performance mobile network access from anywhere on campus.
