Agricultural enterprise in Penza


Summary
Constrained by home routers and unmanaged home switches, this agricultural enterprise needed a single, centralized network connecting every one of its sites. Criteria for vendors and their equipment included ease of configuration and manageability, ability to combine all branches into a single network controlled via a single administration console, anti-virus protection, content filtering, and geolocation. But the real crux was being able to overcome the huge distances between the sites, which included vegetable and livestock farms as well as offices. And that’s why Zyxel’s cloud-based Nebula system was chosen. It allows the centralized and remote configuration of all components as well as provides a convenient way to centrally manage the distributed network – all while offering the most competitive price-performance ratio. Given the large distances involved, the project was scheduled over six months, with 10 staff installing the equipment and three more working from the main office to set it up. With Nebula in place through powerful Zyxel gateways and switches, the customer now has a unified network, centralized configuration, cyberthreat protection, and hyperfast WiFi. Staff are happier and farm operations are more efficient to the point that the customer plans to purchase additional Nebula equipment as it expands.
