China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) has selected Cisco systems for a major upgrade of its network. The solution is based on Cisco 7600 and 3600 series routers. Sinopec will deploy other Cisco services and applications, including H.323 multimedia conferencing, virtual private networking and IP telephony.
The network upgrade will enable the integration of multiple applications and connect hundreds of Sinopec subsidiaries. The broadband network will centralize Sinopec’s ERP systems and automate office administration and data analysis.
Cisco VP Fredy Cheung said, “To help our customers we share our experience gained with their international peers in the oil and chemical industry. Early Cisco involvement can improve an organization’s business model and competitive strength.”
