Zentek (formerly Provideo Management, Inc.) successfully modernized a Civilian Agency’s Headquarters core network and security infrastructure. This modernization spanned the perimeter security to the client access layer. We provided engineering resources to design, implement, and test the new Cisco Route / Switch and Security solution that we deployed in parallel to the existing production network.
Zentek redesigned the Core, Campus, DC, Internet Edge, and DMZ Layer networks, which involved re-engineering the network using a Virtualized Multi-tenant DC (VMDC) architecture to provide a repeatable and scalable POD design and to introduce additional DC technology.
We also provided engineering services to implement Cisco’s Identity Services Engine (ISE), an identity and access control policy platform, which enabled our customer to enforce compliance, enhance infrastructure security and streamline their service operations at the enterprise level. The ISE environment facilitates the authentication and authorization of employees and guests accessing their wired and wireless network.
We performed the following high-level tasks over the course of this project:
The network infrastructure that Zentek was responsible for designing and implementing is depicted below:
