Challenges for the building industry
Firms must transmit large files such as CAD drawings between offices, no matter where on earth they are located. Lack of efficient bandwidth limits productivity.
Pop-up and temporary sites
Construction sites or pop-up offices may be geographically remote and require fast, cost effective onboarding, with reliable connectivity.
Support for real-time applications
A network that can deliver secure 24/7 real-time communications is critical when it comes to collaborating and managing cost for remote projects.
Expensive WAN links
Traditional MPLS and private line connections are inflexible and expensive for an industry that needs flexibility and low costs.
Building Information Models, green buildings, and managing prefab construction components require intelligent networks to handle increasing IoT data.
As more data lives in the cloud, organizations need a simple, secure on-ramp for optimal user experience and productivity, especially for remote projects.
Simplify WAN deployment with cloud
Deploy new, temporary or pop-up branches in minutes with zero-touch Edge with cloud activation and management. Automatic selection of cloud gateways for optimal connectivity to cloud and SaaS applications like Office 365, Building Information Modeling, etc. eliminates expensive backhauling of WAN traffic and poor application performance. Subscription based Network-as-a-Service eliminates upfront CAPEX costs.
Aggregate broadband, LTE links for remote sites
Increase bandwidth usage by aggregating multiple inexpensive broadband links including LTE 4G/5G and leased lines into a virtual, high bandwidth WAN to support critical applications, design and media data files access and collaboration like voice/video and virtual desktops. Enterprise-grade WAN provides dynamic application multi-path steering and on-demand link remediation for redundancy and application performance protection.
Centralized management, control, policy enforcement
Automatic, single click site-to-site VPN for secure branch-to-headquarters and direct branch-to-branch traffic. Monitor real-time status and health from the cloud console. Easy plug-and-play device installation and teardown at remote construction sites based on the job requirement.
Reliable VoIP and access to modeling applications is a huge win. We cut operational costs by 50% by avoiding trips to remote locations for IT reasons.
