K-Electric refreshes and modernizes its Data center with State-of-the-art Cisco Nexus 9K and NGFW Technology

K-Electric is at present the only vertically-integrated power utility in Pakistan that manages the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity to the city. K-Electric planned to upgrade their core switching infrastructure to introduce redundancy while securing this highly critical network with industries best available security solution. Keeping in view the criticality of the business nature, Arwen Tech proposed the next generation of data center switching solution which is based on Cisco Nexus 9000 series line of switches. In Cisco® NX-OS Software mode, the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series addresses the new challenges of current infrastructure designs, while building on first-generation software-defined networking (SDN) solutions and providing a path to Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). These Nexus 9500 switches are not only intelligent enough to smartly manage the intense load of such a huge organization but also enables K-Electric to be 40G – 100G infrastructure ready.
