Challenge

In mid-2014, Frontex faced the challenge to change the location of the headquarters. The existing office, located in the Rondo 1 building was to be transferred to the emerging building in Warsaw, Wola Warsaw Spire.

In connection with the move there was a need for the migration of enormous amount of valuable data located in the Agency server room. To fully protect them against loss of data, the customer requirement was to design and execute two independent fiber optic routes, inside both of the buildings and in the city Teletech ducts and to launch the data transfer between the above mentioned sites at the capacity of 10 Gbps.

Solution

The Frontex agency entrusted a project with the Warsaw integrator of ICT services – Omnitec Sp. z o. o.. It, in accordance with the requirements, designed and built a fully redundant infrastructure running on the data service providing all of the necessary edge devices, optical inserts and patch cords. In addition, in accordance with the guidelines enshrined in the contract, a very high availability of services at the level of 99.95%has been assured, and the quality of the transmission was supervised Dby dedicated coordinators available 24 hours a day.

Benefits

Thanks to the timely implementation of all the objectives of the contract, such a sensitive area of the Agency as the IT environment has been without any problems moved to new premises. The resulting reference letter is a reflection of customer satisfaction.

It is worth mentioning that the area of cooperation between Omnitec and Frontex is wider. The Agency shall use the service of Internet access since January 2014, using a symmetrical 100/100 Mbps link with our BGP service.
