Our Hydro Projects and O&M sites are situated in a very difficult location where connectivity is always a bigger challenge. Due to connectivity issues managing following activities becomes really difficult –


1. Preparing new client computer from
   central SCCM server in case machine
      needs to rebuilt.
2.   Patching of computers
3.   AV update
4.   Access to Design Apps
5 .   Access to Enterprise App
6.    Data exchange
7.  Access to other entries solutions which
      are hosted either in cloud or in India DC
       or globally.
8.    Access LMS etc.

 

 Apart from conventional connectivity like ILL, we are heavily dependent on Mobile connectivity. In future, 5G will definitely play an important role for us and businesses similar to us. In order to get rid of above problems, we tried a couple of solutions and finalized / deployed following solutions.

 

A. Adaptiva
The Adaptiva OneSite content distribution engine securely speeds enterprise-wide software deployments with its breakthrough peer-to-peer technology. Now we can reliably distribute any software at unparalleled speed and massive scale without the need for costly server investments, bandwidth throttling, or time-consuming manual efforts. It has helped us a lot in content delivery for all our difficult location.

 

Adaptiva’s Windows 10 Accelerator Program provides a stress-free, cost-effective way for enterprise IT professionals to plan, test, deploy and maintain Windows 10. The program delivers an end-to-end ecosystem of all the products, tools, and training our need to speed zero-touch Windows 10 deployments at scale. Windows 10 is a very high priority project for us globally as we have to upgrade numerous computers by Dec 2019.   

 

B. Deploying SD-WAN  
CloudGenix software defined WAN (SD-WAN) with AppFabric connects our sites securely with application awareness to seamlessly integrate cloud, take advantage of Internet connectivity, align WAN management with business priority, and it has reduced our remote office hardware and operational costs. With these two solutions we have been able to resolve our IT Operational issues and achieve better performance for remote / project locations.
