SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 21, 2024 – IP Infusion, the market leader in carrier-grade networking software systems, announced today that Citynet, the IT Brand of Hall AG has upgraded its Cisco backbone network with IP Infusion OcNOS. This upgrade was deployed on Edgecore Networks hardware, and serviced by STORDIS Gmbh, the open networking expert.

Under their brand Citynet, they currently serve 5,000 customers and provide a variety of reliable networking and connectivity solutions for regional and international businesses.

Facing growing bandwidth demand, Citynet evaluated its existing options; pandemic market shortages of hardware, overall growing bandwidth demand and other factors created a challenging upgrade environment.

“IP Infusion’s industry-standard CLI aided the transition immensely,” said Matthias Feistmantl, Senior Network Operations Engineer and Architect for Citynet. “The OcNOS feature set is extensive, and the product roadmap is compelling and timely. Their great after-sales support was appreciated in aiding the upgrade process.”
