|Swisscom Innovations is the R&D department of the Swisscom group. Due to its vocation, it features a highly dynamic and heterogeneous environment. Despite its small size and only 160 employees, more than 1000 systems are authorized to access one its 35 networks. This system has been in production since 2004.
FreeNAC, aside from increased security due to LAN access control provided unexpected benefits in productivity for network administrators (less cable patching, easier switch configuration), IT (live inventory) as well as end users (all networks available on all sockets in all rooms).
|Bluewin is the leading ISP in Switzerland, serving more than 1 Mio customers. Its headquarters in Zürich are arranged in an open space fashion. FreeNAC enabled significants savings during reorganisations (since switch ports are dynamic), and has allowed identification and removal of unauthorised devices.
As people are often moving in and out, FreeNAC is authenticating about 2000 systems each day.
|Accarda originally implemented 'port security' by configuring the allowed MAC addresses per switch port. FreeNAC has drastically improved the ease of LAN access management, especially during reorganisations.|
