Customer use case
 

Customer challenge
Fuji Television's network infrastructure lacked the bandwidth to handle growing communications volumes, didn’t allow employees to work from multiple studio locations, and restricted their overall productivity. They needed a modern, flexible network infrastructure to provide superior content for viewers.

 

How Kyndryl helped
Kyndryl helped design, deploy, and migrate network solutions based on Cisco technology. This new network allowed their employees to effectively work from anywhere, reduced operational workloads, and supported bandwidth expansion for highly available networks. To minimize downtime, we carefully constructed a phased approach to server migrations and accomplished all tasks within six months. The secure, flexible network infrastructure accommodated employee work styles while producing and delivering high-quality content to viewers

 

Outcomes achieved

  • Modern secure networks allow employees to work from anywhere
  • Power and space requirements reduced by 30%
  • Increased efficiency and reduced administrative workload
  • Refreshed networks improved content quality with new high-capacity content production and collaboration workflows
