The Challenge

With annual visitors circa 2,000, the challenge for Focus Group was to implement an IT infrastructure that could support its multiple sites, linking all operations seamlessly and efficiently, including remote working users. Cyber security was key as was minimising the management complexity.

Focus rapidly became a partner we could reply upon and trust as our business grew and invested more in complex technology.

The Solution

Yeo Valley HQ now boasts a Cisco IT infrastructure, which incorporates SD-WAN, Data Centre and Access Switching from Catalyst 3k to 9k, WLAN (made up of 160 Access Points across the estate), Threat Defence Firewalling, Telephony solutions, Cisco Identity Service Engine and Umbrella, and IoT within the manufacturing environments.

The Results

Yeo Valley can now be confident that their IT infrastructure is at the top of its game, having achieved digital transformation through Cisco End-to-End network that is future-proof. The business is fully supported with a secure, scalable platform which, importantly, is simple to manage. Focus Group also provides 24/7 managed services.
