Australia protects borders – and network integrity – with M-Series

Several years ago, the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection outsourced the operation and management of their secure gateway. Recently, they decided to move to a dual-site active/active gateway, which brought the technology back in-house. This required them to establish high-speed connections between data centers located within the head office Canberra region.

But there was one major problem: Acquiring the fiber would take too long—up to six months. The Department’s mission to ensure secure passage through the country couldn’t wait for its technology infrastructure to play catch-up. And the IT department had only six weeks to allocate budgets for upgrading their systems before the fiscal year ran out. They turned to Smartoptics for a simple, low-cost way of optimizing their network.
