Sahara Computers has extensive network of branches and dealers and we needed a partner who can provide us hassle free connectivity, Alcatel-Lucent network system provided us the customized solution which didn’t need too many people to manage. We are now availing their services for our group companies too.

Challenges

  • Sahara needed to upgrade their old, disparate nationwide voice and data offering.
  • Nothing was linked or converged, creating a sea of separate systems, high interbranch call costs and limited view of easy access
  • Old system was unstable without an software integration or advanced features. All communications were problematic offering no single management view
