The service delivered by Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise also improved infrastructure security, thanks to the new spatial redundancy function. In case of issues, the management of the affected exchange is transferred to an exchange at another company building, thus providing communication continuity, as well preserving the investments we made.

Claudio Valota, CIO, ASL MILANO


  • ASL Milano 2 needed to update its telephony system to comply with new government regulations.
  • It also wanted to centralize the management of its 27 telephone exchanges while reducing operating and maintenance costs.
  • In addition, it was important for the health center to ensure better service continuity and implement a more efficient backup system.
