3Com Leads Stadler Rail to a Network for the Future
Founded more than 60 years ago in Zurich, Stadler Rail AG today employees 2,350 employees at seven locations in Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Hungary and, more recently, Algeria. The company's IT infrastructure had expanded gradually and in a more or less uncoordinated manner. A new network infrastructure was needed for the future: modern, high performance and reliable. A second challenge was the integration of an administrative building into the network infrastructure in the main building. The company chose the 3Com Switch 8800 as a backbone with high bandwidth and security. If necessary, this modular switch can be extended almost arbitrarily, and was therefore the right basis for ensuring future expandability.
