Cassidian supplies IT infrastructure to NATO sites
Jan 30, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Cassidian, a provider of security solutions and systems, has delivered and installed the turnkey IT infrastructure to the NATO sites in Brunssum, Heidelberg, Ramstein and Wesel, for use by a total of 3,000 users.
The customer was the Federal Republic of Germany, which acted as the procurement agency on behalf of NATO. The key objective of the project was to expand and modernise the computer centres, the LAN and WAN networks and the entire end-user domain.
After carrying out site integration tests at each of the sites, NATO was directly able to put the new infrastructure into operation. The final system acceptance was concluded by the German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw), after all documentation had been delivered, said Cassidian.
As part of the project, the existing network infrastructure was completely re- designed and its capacity and bandwidth were increased simultaneously. The computer centres were modernised and expanded with a new server infrastructure based on blade technology and next-generation storage and back-up systems. During this process, technology such as virtualisation was used, added Cassidian.
System components such as workstations, laptops and printers were also provided, and a secure printing system was set up. Out-of-band management enables the infrastructure to be managed fully, without influencing its operation. Migrating data and transferring all the existing applications to the new system constituted another essential component of the contract.
