F5 and Cisco ACI Case Study

Need more? Check out our recently published case study featuring West Corporation – a joint customer – highlighting the improvements in data throughput that the communications services firm received with an integrated F5 and Cisco ACI solution.

West Corporation’s Jeremy Brown, Enterprise Architect, shared his thoughts about his decision to go with F5 with Cisco, “We need software-defined networking, an application-centric infrastructure, and the ability to intelligently manage the traffic of these services essentially at a moment’s notice. Combining F5 and ACI meets those needs, and we’re using the BIG-IQ platform to make the integration work best. We know what we’re getting with the F5/ACI fabric combination—it’s tangible and reliable, not guesswork.”
