Additionally in 2011, Nabarro extended its private Network to its Singapore office. As an existing supplier, Exponential-e was chosen for its 100GigE Ethernet Layer 2 fibre Network, which supports multiple services over one connection. The improved Connectivity between the sites provided end-users with a faster, more reliable and responsive service with easy access to data maintained in the UK, enabling staff to work more collaboratively across their global offices.
Nabarro embarked on a major IT refresh in 2013 due to a number of business challenges including the relocation of their London headquarters, server and storage hardware reaching end of life, and the desire to move their Data Centre off site. The firm’s management team were forward thinking and were looking for an innovative approach to resolve their IT challenges. The firm decided it should move away from the investment spikes of a CAPEX model and move to an OPEX solution that was more scalable, responsive, cost efficient and reliable. By moving to a hybrid Cloud model Nabarro was able to reduce risk to the firm and its clients.
Exponential-e’s support team monitor Nabarro’s infrastructure in the form of 24 / 7 x 365 around the clock support. As well as Cloud and Connectivity services, the high bandwidth Network supports additional services that include IP Telephony, Video Conferencing and Server Replication. By centralising its internal applications, Nabarro was able to move its servers and applications off site to two purpose built facilities. They also switched their telephone service from traditional ISDN to SIP Trunks, now a key component of the firm’s business continuity strategy as it reduces risk to the organisation and its clients.
All Nabarro’s Voice and system applications can run with either site down, providing peace of mind for employees, clients and the business. The IT transformation has improved Network and service performance, and helped to streamline business processes. Providing flexible IT infrastructure services that could be customised was paramount to Nabarro’s IT strategy. “We weren’t looking for an ‘off the shelf’ solution - we needed our IT infrastructure to be built around our business requirements. Exponential-e’s approach and smooth implementation exceeded all our expectations” explained their IT Director.
