Extending the life of network equipment

The client is a New Zealand based public health organisation with >6000 employees, operating three hospitals, providing a variety of specialist care services to a population of around 1.000.000 people. They ran a fleet of legacy network equipment with little support of the OEM, when they needed to refresh their network with limited budget.

The challenge

As is the case for most healthcare organizations in the public sector, they were asked to do more with less – resulting in a limited budget to do a network refresh.
They were considering doing a network refresh with a fleet of new products of Cisco equipment, until they came in contact with Aliter Networks Asia on LinkedIn and were impressed by Aliter’s track record and customer testimonials.

The solution

Sold on the knowledge that Aliter has 10+ years of experience, and a thorough testing process, the organization was comfortable moving forward with Aliter as a vendor and partner. Working with refurbished networking equipment enabled them to maintain their switching infrastructure, while staying within a tighter budget which ultimately led to them offering better services to the hospitals.
