Challenges

  • Energy One undertook a review of their network infrastructure in preparation for an upcoming Unified Communications (UC) rollout in its Sydney and Melbourne offices. The review highlighted connectivity issues that could impact the performance of the new voice and video functionalities.

  • The organization also identified user authentication, WiFi guest access, and a lack of consistency for users across sites as areas for improvement. 

  • Looking to the future, Energy One also wanted a scalable and centrally managed network solution that could grow along with the company.
