"We need a future-oriented network for our new solar-technology location. We want to consciously invest in state-of-the-art technologies, while constantly focusing on the needs of our industrial company. We are used to a stable, fluid and high-performing network, and expect that from the new solution, too."
These were the words with which Meyer Burger AG, market and technology leader among suppliers of machines and system solutions for the solar and semiconductor industries, set out the conditions for the contract. What was needed, therefore, was a well-thought-out IT solution for the new location in Thun. Alpiq InTec Ost AG was open and willing to participate in the invitation to tender with a state-of-the-art data-centre solution. With success!
Cost-effective and perfectly tailored data-centre solution
Alpiq’s IT & TelCom professionals presented Meyer Burger AG with a concept that met the highest requirements in terms of performance, scalability and cost-effectiveness. At the same time, it took into account systematically the specific demands of the company, which is active in three continents and has 2000 employees. The undertaking was supported by Alpiq’s tried and tested project management methods and processes and the high-quality components provided by the manufacturer Alcatel-Lucent.
Head of IT takes stock: budget and schedule observed
Meyer Burger AG particularly valued the close collaboration. "With the team from Alpiq, we had the perfect support at our side," says Jonas Reusser, head of IT Operations. "As a result of having the right partner and the right technology, the project could be implemented to budget and schedule," he concludes.
