Every business is marching towards digitization. To keep up with Beckman Coulter’s rapid growth, it needed new network equipment and the IT Infrastructure to re-design and maintain its ecosystem.
Their specific requirements were:
- Network and Security 24x7 (Global Network Operations) for its IT network which included In-house and co-located site globally.
- Support for Beckman’s Network engineering team, that is responsible for building and maintaining the day-to-day operation of computer networks that companies and organizations rely on. These networks typically include an intranet, extranet, local area network (LAN), and wide area network (WAN).
Each network was complex and made up of multiple protocols, platforms, applications, and technologies and was becoming extremely difficult to manage internally.
One of the main challenges Beckman was facing was unstable support services for its complex network infrastructure and growing needs of its Global Network operations.
Supporting Beckman’s IT, so the leader can continue making a difference uninterrupted:
