Calsonic Kansei (China) Holding Company is a subsidiary of Calsonic Kansei Corporation of Japan, a global company involved in the design and manufacturing of automotive parts. Calsonic Kansei China has experienced rapid growth since it was established in 2002, and has more than 4,000 employees across 14 locations in nine Chinese cities.

When Calsonic Kansei China, a leading manufacturer of automotive components, sought to manage its rapid growth by employing a cloud-first strategy, the introduction of bandwidth-intensive applications and services to the network resulted in a sharp rise in IT spending; and poor application performance impacted end-user experience, productivity, and collaboration. Calsonic Kansei China deployed Riverbed® SteelHead™ in order to accelerate the performance of business-critical SaaS applications like Microsoft Office 365, curbing rising IT costs and paving the way for future digital transformation initiatives.




We saw every connection accelerate during both the proof of concept and deployment,” Huang explains. “Email traffic was optimized by more than 50 percent, ERP and file sharing traffic by more than 70 percent. Users in our Shanghai head office were blown away by 2x faster email delivery speeds and overall improvements to system response.

SteelHead appliances were easy to install and manage, with a simple, intuitive user interface that worked within our existing network environment,” Huang explains. Riverbed spared no efforts to support us on the project implementation. Their team was deeply engaged from the project design stage to ensure success.
