Case Study: Municipality of Kungsbacka

Preparing for the IoT future

Summary

Challenges

  • Create a user-friendly, IoT-ready network for the Municipality of Kungsbacka’s 8,000 employees.
  • Ensure device security at scale.
  • Keep software up-to-date and avoid service interruptions.

Results

What they’re saying

"Time is usually a detriment when it comes to large-scale projects. But thanks to Cisco, Cygate, and my team's diligent work, we've moved at an incredibly fast pace. A project that should have taken five years or more is scheduled for completion in less than 24 months. This is good news for those designing the new network and those waiting for its [autumn] 2018 implementation."
