ALE has served many companies to overcome their difficulties regarding network management. SMC Electric supply is one of them. SMC Electric Supply provides its customers with products from over 250 manufacturers, ranging from automation, data communications and electronics to pneumatics, safety, and security products. Each of SMC’s locations had its separate phone system from different service providers. Since staff always needed to make calls between sites, implementing several systems was expensive and inefficient for daily operations and maintenance. SMC staff found it difficult to consistently answer customers’ incoming calls, especially when out of the office. They needed phones they could carry around on site, and a call forwarding system to avoid losing calls from potential revenue-generating customers. All these problems got swiped away by leveraging ALE’s services. After that, SMC employees connect their phone to WiFi which allows greater flexibility to run meetings, call customers and invite guests from any location, and customer drop-off rate is significantly lower now as all calls are answered, helping to generate more revenue.

According to ALE, these aging infrastructures may not support the new wave of multimedia applications because they were never designed to provide the capacity needed to meet the instant-on, multi-device load generated by today’s business. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise aim is to continue to revolutionize the networking landscape while reducing costs, improving performance and security, and supporting new devices, technologies, and business use cases.
