Optimisation and refurbishment of the data network in Teplárny Brno
Teplárny Brno selected ANECT to refurbish and optimise its data network. The RFQ called for the preparation of an implementation project for two separate IT networks and a proposal for their interconnection through the company's IT systems, with subsequent implementation of the proposed solution in the client's environment.
The client's specific requirements:
- Preparation of implementation project and solution concept.
- Replacement of morally, technically, or otherwise outdated active network elements by new ones.
- Division of the technology network used to control primary and secondary heating energy sources from the office network, including design and implementation of a system providing managed communication between these two networks.
- Provision of 5 Wi-Fi Access Points for meeting rooms and other areas.
- Supply and installation of a system enabling efficient centralised management of active network elements, including configuration and security policy management.
- Monitoring and maintenance of the network infrastructure.
Individual implementation phases:
- Detailed project proposal with a conceptual solution.
- Implementation of Cisco advanced network elements.
- Ensuring managed communication between three separate network segments (data network for controlling primary and secondary heating sources, office network, Wi-Fi Access Points).
- The client obtained a detailed project proposal and knew how the project would be implemented.
- The new infrastructure is based on high-quality and reliable network elements, ensuring scalability and enabling future modification.
ANECT defined three types of user access for the Wi-Fi network:
- guest 1 – only Internet access (consultants, auditors)
- guest 2 – access to specified IT infrastructure systems
- employee - complete access to the entire domain and to specified systems
The implementation provided a clear overview of the network infrastructure for the client. ANECT will continue to provide network administration through remote monitoring and a Service Desk. ANECT refurbished the network infrastructure using high-quality elements, which are much more reliable and have longer service life than the existing ones. We defined and implemented security rules which prevent unauthorised access to the company's internal systems.
We can implement a similar solution in your environment. If you are interested in this solution and want to know more, contact your ANECT sales representative and/or fill in our contact form.
