A reliable, high-performance IT infrastructure along with stable finances and a strong brand are required to maintain successful business and ensure efficient business processes. Fischer’s top management has thus defined cabling network modernization and reconstruction as one of the company’s top priorities. R&M’s solutions had been used by Fischer before this project implementation so the customer was fully aware of the advantages of the brand.

«The R&Mfreenet solution was chosen because it shows the best correlation with complicated project targets and requirements. More than half of the new solution was going to be implemented in the production area so we needed an excellent system with stable characteristics and a significant reserve even in extreme and limited infrastructure conditions, also in harsh environments. A further advantage of using R&M components is getting unified cabling systems from the same brand,» says Yosyp Sich, Head of the Computer Service and Communications Department, Fischer-Mukachevo Ltd.

The project was accomplished in just six months. The total capacity comprises more than 500 copper ports; the standard cable length is about 22 km. The complete cable network features 14 distribution points. «Both office and industrial zones were to be modernized. There were three stages of project realization to gradually upgrade the common network and thus not interrupt the production process. The most difficult aspect was to implement the network reconstruction concept without causing any production breaks and delays,» comments Vadim Popovich, Director of Zakarpatpolyteh, system integrator for Fischer-Mukachevo Ltd.
