Case Study: Mascot adopts CAT 6 for multi-service networks

Ranked 11th on the Nasscom list of top Indian software service companies, Mascot Systems has a global presence in nine countries including the US, UK, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Japan, China and Singapore. The company has five development centres, which include four offshore development centers in India including one each in Hyderabad, and Chennai and two in Bangalore along with an offsite development center in Toronto, Canada. It has over 80 customers, across verticals, worldwide.

Mascot adopted CAT 6 cabling at its Bangalore facilities for two reasons:

  • Mascot's servers and application requirements are bandwidth intensive. These requirements increase as technologies mature. Being a technology company, it deals with the latest hardware and software which need a high-speed network.
  • Multiple services including voice, data and images are transmitted on the same network.

The deployment
Mascot is using the CAT 6 network for various applications including data (Web-based and client-server), voice (Unified Voice Mailing system, analog and digital voice) and images (Fax, Videoconferencing).

The network was designed using local expertise. Around 120 kilometres of CAT 6 cabling have been laid. In addition, armoured fiber cable has been used for 1.3 kilometres. Mascot has invested US$ 125,000 for deploying CAT 6. It took approximately four months to complete the installation.
