Ceridian Communications Backbone
Major human resource benefits and payroll provider with multiple offices and datacenters operated with a mix of network toplogies, network component vendors and telco carriers. Telco operating budget was $8 million per year with a network support staff of twelve. Network availability was poor and capability, with no VoIP or video content capability. Finally, the company's security posture was not optimal.
We started with an assessment of network topology, carrier contracts for services, skillset of personnel, facilities/offices, maintenance and capital plans for network elements. We then developed and implemented a plan for converting from frame relay to TCIP/IP.
Savings of $3 million per year and a reduction in the suppport staff to five administrators. Network availability attained 99.999% or Six Sigma. Also implemented services for VoIP and video broadcasts to the user community. Improved security posture to meet SAS70 and SOX compliance.
