10 GB/s connections are standard in backbone systems today, 40 GB/s and 100 GB/s will not be long in the waiting. With the enhancement of network performance, the number of devices and cables in the IT infrastructure also increases. In order to prevent a tangled mess of cables, space-saving and clever solutions are required. This of course also applies to the Swiss Post.
The largest postal company in Switzerland links some 58,000 employees with one another internally via its network. It is absolutely essential that the systems operate reliably. HUBER+SUHNER was commissioned by Swiss Post to develop a backbone system that is compatible with the existing infrastructure. The challenge was met with great efficiency, without having to reinvent the wheel: «Through minor creative modifications and adaptations of our existing LiSA cabinet, LiSA Spezial was created. This solution which is modular and space-saving in design, tidies up the cables and saves a great deal of time during installation,» explains Hausi Grossenbacher, Sales Manager Communications Switzerland. The responsible IT personnel at Swiss Post were delighted with the customised system.
