UAE Ministry of Justice Upgrades Network Infrastructure with Brocade to Increase Performance and Reliability, and Support Smart Go...
The Sharjah Court was built in 2006, and since that time there has been a huge increase in the volume of transactions every day. With over 1000 people accessing legal services, 1045 notary service transactions, and 66 cases being filed per day, bottlenecks were beginning to develop in the network before the upgrade. MoJ’s system had experienced downtime and the applications running on it had become sluggish. Additionally, most of MoJ’s network traffic was being routed through a data center in Abu Dhabi which, from a networking point of view, was important to offload part of this traffic to the Sharjah site. All of this necessitated an overhaul of the data center.

"We wanted to increase capacity for students to be able to use their own mobile devices -- in addition to nearly 900 desktop and tablet devices the school operates for staff and students -- which meant we needed to upgrade our core and edge switches."
Federal Forum Changes the Network Conversation for Federal Government
The federal government relies on one of the largest and most complex network environments in the world. Today, agencies are dealing with massive quantities of data on an infrastructure that is over 15 years old. Systems implemented before the full impact of the Internet, smart phones, and social media cannot support today's government needs. Network modernization, if implemented and managed effectively, can be a springboard for optimization of resources, smart decision-making, and technological innovation without adding cost to the taxpayer.
