Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) is modernising its wireless networks to support 4,000 employees daily, as part of active digital transformational efforts.
“We are moving into the new digital future, not only through the way we deliver news, but through constant innovation to build the workplace of the future” said Glen Francis, chief technology officer at SPH. “The pandemic accelerated the agenda to strengthen our technological foundations, so we can improve work quality and streamline processes with an enhanced network infrastructure. Mobility and agility will be key driving forces in the evolving ‘anywhere’ office.”
The network modernisation will create operational efficiencies and bolster security across thousands of users and devices from a single management pane, providing full visibility into the network.
Given the need for robust network management, Aruba was selected to help SPH create a better-connected and futureproof workplace that provides connectivity, speed and security at scale for its employees.
Aruba WLAN solutions will provide comprehensive and flexible Wi-Fi coverage for the expansive SPH campus spanning over 150,000 square metres across both Print and News Centres.
“This year, IT teams will begin the next step of their transformational journey, which is creating the necessary infrastructure for the intelligent edge,” said Justin Chiah, senior director, South East Asia, Taiwan and Hong Kong (SEATH) at Aruba. “Beyond simply connecting remote workers to the cloud, how users and the Internet of Things are connected will be a key area of focus to improve business outcomes, while enriching employee experiences.”
In commenting on its choice of Aruba solution, SPH's Francis commented that “It builds a solid foundation for SPH to continue delivering better products for customers, simplifying technology for business users, and developing new capabilities. We have never been more confident and well-prepared to move into the new digital future.”
