With continued airport expansion and high levels of customer traffic expected at South Africa's airports during 2010 and beyond, Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) has focused on providing critical IT network services 24/7 for all its airports to ensure services run efficiently.
Working closely with NetSpeed Technologies, ACSA has selected Entuity's Eye of the Storm (EYE) to manage its expanding IT network.
"EYE has assisted ACSA IT to have insight into network performance and availability to a level that has never been possible for us. Proactive problem resolution is now greatly enhanced due to this insight as well as using the excellent features within EYE", says Werick Venter, IT infrastructure manager at ACSA.
"ACSA is tasked with managing the aviation infrastructure of South Africa and with Eye of the Storm monitoring our IT infrastructure, we can continue developing world-class, secure and safe airport experiences for our customers," Venter explains.
"The complex services that operate our airports demand 24/7 network access. Because of the initial success on the LAN infrastructure, EYE will be expanded to include other infrastructure components such as servers monitoring, Firewall, VMware, etc.
"Our local Entuity partner, NetSpeed Technologies has helped us maximize our EYE deployment with their professionalism and outstanding technical expertise. We look forward to the future with our network foundation solidly in place to support ACSA's entire business."
