Swiss City’s New Network a Success – Thanks to Cisco!

It’s hard enough being a department of two. Now imagine managing an out-of-date network infrastructure in an old, three-story building. And add two other older buildings running the same decrepit network and you have the scenario that was facing the two-man IT department of the City of Biel, Switzerland.

The city’s network engineers turned to Cisco to help solve the difficult task of trying to fix their current situation while attempting to address the network’s future needs.

Cisco suggested utilizing a central point of management that can rapidly configure and deploy switches with a central switch. The following products were used:

  • Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders
  • Cisco 5508 Wireless Controllers
