Brussels Metro Glides into The Future with Extreme Networks' Automated Solutions
To deliver on STIB's vision – the "Mission Critical Network" –
- Real Automated Control of Network Traffic
Extreme Management Center software provides a path to real-time automated control of the network, end-to-end. By utilising automation to offload routine tasks traditionally carried out manually, STIB is empowered to unlock efficiencies in the organisation's day-to-day operations, increasing current and future capacity across the
- Extensive IP-based Video Surveillance Network
Nearly 15,000 high-definition, IP-based video surveillance cameras are now supported by the network, keeping passengers and staff on the transit system safe and secure. Making use of Extreme's Fabric Connect network virtualisation technology, STIB now has the flexibility to quickly and easily provision additional services where needed for optimal efficiency.
- Manual and Automated Management of the Transit System
Integrating manual and automated management of the transit system was key to achieving increased passenger capacity. Optimising system availability, incorporating system and service resilience, and enhancing network visibility enables STIB to maintain critical human oversight and minimise the potential for human error. With a sub-second failover of links and/or associated switching systems, Extreme Fabric Connect also gives
- Unrivalled Networking Simplicity
By eliminating traditional PIM layered protocol stacks and replacing them with a simplified ISIS routing / IGMP snooping combination, Extreme Fabric Connect Multicast is simple to implement and operate, less error prone and fast to converge when adverse network conditions occur. With it, STIB benefits from the optimum blend of network reliability, efficiency and ease of use.
Throughout the entire process of installation, implementation and testing, Extreme worked in close partnership with ProData Systems to ensure that the solution put in place would meet specific requirements of their business today – and position STIB advantageously for the challenges and initiatives of tomorrow.
"A flexible, resilient and self-driving network is the foundation upon which the smart city of the future will be built on. We have worked with
