Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise won the tender thanks to a joint proposal with long-time business partner Oechsler Controlware GmbH, to come up with a solution.

  • País: Alemania
  • Sector: Fabricación
  • Solución: Autonomous Network, Data Center, Telefonía de empresa

Established in 1864, Oechsler AG is now a major global plastics engineering and manufacturing company.

Headquartered in Ansbach, southern Germany, the company has three German locations, as well as international offices in China, Romania, Mexico and Singapore.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise comes up with solution for a modern network with innovative components and a highly reliable and intelligent network management system, and also to supply the components and deliver training to Oechsler AG's IT team.

We created a completely new, modern foundation for our entire data and voice communications. We designed our infrastructure in a way that makes it innovative and flexible, provides high capacity and speed to the users, but remains reduced to the essential components.

Thomas Ehnes, Head of IT, Oechsler AG


  • Oechsler AG's existing platform was old and out-of-date, with many dedicated servers from different manufacturers, extremely heterogeneous.
  • There was no central management, just individual tools for different tasks, and the bandwidth far exceeded the capacity of the installed network. 
  • Finally, even the most important components of the network were not installed redundantly, so if a network failure occurred, it had a knock-on effect on the entire company.

  • Oeschler's entire global IT is now managed centrally from its headquarters in Anbasch, with a remote view of all the other Germany sites as well as international locations. 
  • This streamlining of processes and systems has resulted in significant savings. 

User experience: 

  • Employees have been particularly satisfied with the high transfer speed - they can now perform a complete backup of the file server in under half the time it took before.
