On modern construction sites – where data, streaming, IoT and mobility play an important role – Brasfield & Gorrie offers next-generation services that improve building integrity, increase efficiency and improve occupational safety while reducing costs by reducing the wired, wireless, SD-WAN and AI-based management solutions.
“Aruba enables us to continue bringing the latest construction innovations to our customers,” said Brad Hamilton, director of IT operations and infrastructure at Brasfield & Gorrie. “Whether it virtual reality (VR) for an immersive project experience, Drones to automate inspections or Layout robot In order to precisely mark the placement of walls and mechanical systems, our network offers powerful connectivity at every location. “
“Our new SD branch infrastructure provides us with reliable, flexible and scalable connectivity at our branches and construction sites, whether in rural areas with little communication network or in highly developed urban areas with many electrical circuits,” he added.
After using Cisco routing and wired and wireless infrastructures for decades, Brasfield & Gorrie sought to simplify and streamline its networks to save costs and reduce the complexity that creates onerous IT overheads. After piloting Aruba at one of their permanent offices, Brasfield & Gorrie decided to do a full network upgrade.
For its SD branch solution, Brasfield & Gorrie has provided wireless solutions, including Aruba’s WiFi 6 Access points (APs) and powerful branch gateways. On the wired side, the Arubas company has CX series switches for the data center core together with access and aggregation switches.
Brasfield & Gorrie uses for management Aruba Central for uniform and proactive cloud-based AIOps, management of APs, gateways and switches as well as User Experience Insight (UXI) for hardwired or Wi-Fi incident detection using AIOps to pinpoint issues that require immediate attention.
“Aruba’s solution is more advanced in terms of improved throughputs and policy-based management innovations that reduce hardware and IT resource costs,” said Hamilton. “Licensing will also be tightened significantly, which will lead to considerable savings.”
In addition to provisioning and licensing, the Brasfield & Gorrie network has also proven to be more efficient to manage. “With Central and AIOps, we can fix bugs faster,” says Alex Gonzalez, network engineer. “In most cases we saved 75% troubleshooting time.”
In the future, Brasfield & Gorrie looks forward to applying ongoing network innovations that will help make construction processes more automated and intelligent. This also includes considering Arubas NetEdit to optimize switch management and Location services for delivering real-time analytics that enable data-driven initiatives.
“We are excited about our partnership with Aruba and the opportunities for the future,” said Hamilton. “From product innovation to technical support, Aruba solutions are just better all round.”
