The Solution

CBRE’s Network Advisory Services team was engaged to perform a Network / IT Needs Assessment, Baseline Audit and devise a plan to optimize the organization’s network infrastructure moving forward. The initial assessment revealed that the company was utilizing MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) network infrastructure that was both underpowered from a bandwidth perspective and more expensive than newer technologies available on the market.

CBRE worked to create a detailed request for proposal (RFP) structured around the client’s specific criteria and geographic requirements, which ultimately helped the hospitality organization identify the most economically competitive approach.

To improve the end-user experience and consolidate vendors across the portfolio, the Network Advisory Services team recommended the company upgrade to TPx’s SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) technology. With the proposed SD-WAN technology, the hotel brand could benefit from guaranteed performance delivered over the cloud that creates seamless enterprise connectedness.

The Results

The international hospitality company implemented TPx’s SD-WAN technology and streamlined their telecommunications across their global footprint. By partnering with CBRE and TPx, the global hotel brand benefited from: n Increased operational efficiency at a lower cost.

  • Combined total annual savings of more than $300,000

Business Internet + SD-WAN: The Network of the Future

In a cloud-based world, network connectivity is essential for your business operations. Segmenting, compressing, transmitting, and reassembling data in huge amounts is the backbone of our ever-growing internet-enabled economy.

Three Ways SD-WAN Simplifies Network Operations

The modern network needs to handle enormous workloads without compromising the end user’s experience. With users accessing and using resources from all over the world, it can be hard to ensure data flows efficiently, especially if you have limited time, physical resources, and staff to monitor network operations. This is where SD-WAN comes in.
