Morson Group PLC

Background

South Manchester based company Communicate Better recently completed work on the first phase of a major communications consultancy project carried out for Morson Projects, part of the globally renowned Morson Group. Morson Projects provide multi-disciplined engineering, project management and design services to clients within the Aerospace, Nuclear and Process, and General Engineering Industries. The services provided range from Computer Aided Engineering through to complete ‘turn-key’ project management services.

Task

Morson identified the need to upgrade their network to support their growing data requirements and to be able to integrate an IP voice strategy in the future.

Strategy

Communicate Better carried out a full WAN redesign at Morson Projects’ offices in Belfast, Birmingham, Greengarth, Sellafield and the main data centre head office in Manchester. The new WAN connectivity utilizes MPLS IPVN technology, which improves the functionality, performance and resilience required for business communications operations. Communicate Better redesigned the full LAN architecture and the main data centre to improve the efficiency, performance and diversity of the LAN infrastructure. This was a specific requirement by the client as all services for both suppliers and customers are hosted from this site.

Results

Communicate Better engaged with Morson Project’s IT team to provide:

  • A full audit on their current network infrastructure
  • A full scope of requirements in order to roll out the MPLS framework
  • A full LAN/WAN MPLS design and preparation of the ITT on Morson’s behalf

Following on from a successful upgrade of MorsonProjects network, Communicate Better has been selected to plan and manage the implementation of a new data centre for Morson Group. The new data centre will feature state of the art Cisco switching and routing equipment that will ensure Morson stays ahead of their competitors with leading edge technology.

Although our LAN/WAN was originally robust and fit for purpose, the business requirements were about to change. In turn, we needed a flexible network environment which MPLS IP-VPN gave us. The design was to primarily underpin our data network requirements for our 700 personnel and also have scope to integrate our IP Voice strategy.
