Virgin Media Business, BT and CISCO were tasked with delivering the infrastructure and upon circuit installation a team of ITPS engineers undertook router installation and testing. Circuit handover followed a further testing and stabilisation period. There then followed a stage where the client undertook final application testing and, supported by ITPS, a migration was completed.
With over 43 sites involved, receiving at least 2 new circuits each, ITPS and our sub-contract suppliers required multiple visits to each site. Planning attention was given to ensure zero negative impact upon the client’s business during a rollout/migration in 2012 and to meet the client’s migration targets.
At the peak of migration activity some 5 sites a week were migrated and all sites reported positively on the painless nature of the migration and enthusiastically comment on the sheer speed of the new WAN. Data that previously took several hours to move between sites now moves in seconds.
