Project Atrium Enterprise is Atrium’s Enterprise distribution that tackles SDN adoption in a segment most underserved – the Enterprise. In concert with Microsoft IT it brings SDN to address some fundamental challenges that Enterprise IT organizations face today with a shift in the digital behavior of a changing global digital workforce. Round- the-globe, round-the-clock digital collaboration is a given for the increasingly mobile worker whose life is defined by social on or off campus experiences. How does Enterprise IT provide them the right best-in-class campus experience within budget? Atrium Enterprise addresses these challenges in a multi-phase development effort. In this first phase it addresses the Enterprise Collaboration experience by developing to IMTC specifications - a QoE (Quality of Experience) service and an Automated Diagnostics and Reporting service for real-time sensitive Enterprise Productivity Applications. The solution provides integrated wired-wireless support, a choice of Openflow 1.3 data planes and seamless brownfield migration. To maintain the social experience on campus within budget it brings internet-first connectivity to the Enterprise. At each campus connected by the Enterprise WAN, it drops non time sensitive internet traffic off the high-cost managed WAN on to low-cost local internet connections. This reduces the demand on WAN resources giving IT the opportunity to invest the ensuing WAN cost savings in best-in-class on-premise Collaboration experience.
