Hames Sharley SD-WAN Redesign



Hames Sharley specialises in architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, urban design and planning, with offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

NEXION built a new national network to connect Hames Sharley offices, and is underpinned by a Fortinet fabric solution. The upgrade aims to improve services for both clients and internal staff while doing so with a lower footprint.

New Infrastructure

This refresh replaced the existing infrastructure routers and access devices currently deployed in the six Hames Sharley offices as well as providing infrastructure as a service utilizing NEXION OneCloud infrastructure. Inter-site connectivity is provided through the implementation of a Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) managed by Fortinet infrastructure.
