The company started a new plant at Dharwad. In this new site, the IT department undertook to install and implement state-of-the-art technology to cater to the company’s growth path in the coming years. The IT team worked on a migration plan to transition its legacy cabling network and consequently charted out superior network requirements to provide for a reliable and high-speed network environment in the factory which would connect and run the main office, design studio, manufacturing units, shops etc.
Admin Building, TCF Shop, BIW Shop, Engine Shop, Paint Shop, Oil & Paint Store, LCV Shop, and Frame Line are the main constructions in the campus; apart from these more than 20 small individual buildings.
A server room was planned in the TCF Shop, which was directly connect to all the main locations through fiber backbone. The small buildings were also connected through fiber either from the Admin Building or from the Oil & Paint Stores. Accordingly, they designed the location of Hub Rooms calculating the maximum work area utilization as per telecommunication standards.
The IT team decided that to design a network on this scale they had to meet the following criteria:
In short, a redundant, fail-proof system had to be developed, along with a cabling system that would enable future upgrades. This seemed to be a challenge, as the campus infrastructure was already established and functioning on its full strength. Full-scale production was on and many hurdles seemed imminent. It was very important that this task be carried out in a very short time frame without affecting the normal functioning of the production processes.
Galaxy was chosen after careful assessment of its product portfolio. Galaxy worked with the company and the installation company to ensure a seamless execution of the project, throughout which they were able to achieve 100% network uptime. This consultative approach is a good example of how the company prefers to work with its customers.
A detailed project schedule had been prepared in coordination with the company’s IT Team including deliveries, implementation, testing, commissioning, and handover of the project. The first phase was scheduled for 6 months, which included Admin office, TCF Shop, Engine Shop, BIW Shop, and Entry/Exit gates. Full project was completed in one and a half years.
