VODAFONE EGYPT TO IMPROVE ITS BACKBONE
Vodafone Egypt is to start rebuilding its corporate communication infrastructure using 3Com eXpandable Resilient Networking (XRN) technology and Gigabit Ethernet switches. 3Com secured the contract following a competitive tender that involved a number of well-known networking vendors. Vodafone Egypt’s new infrastructure features an entirely new design based on the 3Com Switch 4007, 3Com SuperStack 3 Switch 4924 and SuperStack 3 Switch 4400. Vodafone Egypt will use the XRN Interconnect Kit in conjunction with its two 3Com SuperStack 3 Switch 4924s to interconnect the two switches and create a distributed fabric core which will improve network performance and availability while, crucially, enhancing network redundancy. Vodafone Egypt will also use 3Com Network Supervisor to manage the network. 3Com will continue to work closely with local channel partners Tritech and Perma technology in delivering and supporting the solution.
