Powerful communication networks, supported by optical structures

Powerful IT infrastructure for the future

Broadband networks are the central nervous systems of our cities and municipalities. We provide municipalities, public utility companies, energy suppliers and network operators with advice on all issues relating to the design of IT and telecommunication solutions. We work together with them to develop concepts to ensure that you can make the best possible use of broadband expansion for yourselves and the companies and households in your region. Our security experts will of course be on hand to provide you with help in this area and will also ensure that every solution reliably meets the latest security standards and is protected against online attacks. These efforts will ensure that your customers place their trust in you!

Axians also operates as a general contractor and project partner – regardless of the location. We work independently of manufacturers and with our branches throughout Switzerland, which have a flat hierarchical structure and short decision-making processes. You won’t be handing over the control of your broadband business, but rather benefiting from the opportunities that arise for you and the companies and households in your region – with our experts at your side.

Optical networks for growing bandwidths

Carriers and service providers are needing ever-increasing bandwidths for their day-to-day business in order to ensure that they can transport the exponentially growing data volumes quickly and reliably. Optical networks based on the latest xWDM technologies have long been the standard for this, as they offer the capacities required for the most efficient use of the fibre-optic infrastructure. An increasing number of smart solutions are being developed that allow for rapid and secure data transfer and will be even more competitive in the future.

Our solutions:

  • Access, metro and long-haul networks
  • xWDM
  • Data centre interconnect
  • L1 encryption
  • Packet optical transport

Our aspiration: scalable, intelligent networks that grow in sync with dynamic business requirements.

Axians Packet Optical Transport – Intelligent fibre-optic networks of the future

Axians is building highly complex optical networks throughout Switzerland. We can already offer you solutions with transfer rates of 200 Gbps per channel, with up to 128 channels available in a single fibre.

We have in-depth knowledge of the technologies and supply flexible and intelligent networks that respond optimally to dynamic requirements thanks to the integration of ROADMs, packet optical transport technologies, SDN and NFV on a transport level.

Core and metro area networks

Regardless of whether you cater to private or business customers with your services, our experts have the right solution and the optimal network design at the ready to meet your requirements.

We realise highly available access, metro and backbone networks for regional, national and international carriers. Within this work, we attach great importance to easy-to-operate infrastructures with a high level of automation. In our laboratory, we carry out proofs of concept, interoperability and comparative tests, as well as software and system tests, and thus ensure that your production network is of the highest quality and offers maximum availability. Our modular, hands-on training workshops help your employees to quickly get to grips with new technologies.

We incorporate our fundamental expertise into market-driven solutions to your benefit. Longstanding experience working on complex projects, continuous further training, an excellently equipped laboratory and partnerships with the top manufacturers in the industry are all assets with which we support the entire plan-build-run processes of our customers.

Our solutions:

  • Scalable and highly available metro & core networks based on MPLS technologies
  • Carrier Ethernet 2.0 with “point and click” management solutions
  • High-performance BNG solutions (subscriber management)
  • SDN for data centres and WAN solutions
  • MSP solutions based on NFV, vCPE, CloudCPE, and SD-WAN
  • Mobile backhaul (and fronthaul) networks
  • Network management and automation solutions
  • IPv6 integration and transition solutions (DS, DS-Lite, 6PE, 6VPE)
  • PoCs, type approvals, and SW and HW testing
  • Hands-on training workshops

Security for your network and your end customers

Online attacks are carried out around the clock and can bring your network to its knees. Denial of Service attacks have taken on a previously unheard of dimension. To ensure that you can protect your systems against such attacks, we offer special solutions tailored to your individual business models. We provide intelligent, modular and high-performance solutions that take effect where needed to protect your applications. Even carrier networks with high bandwidths are using our solutions to protect against capacity overload. Our security experts ensure that your networks remain secure at all times.

We combine the latest technologies, such as encryption at each level, with organisational security measures for the benefit of your network.

Security by design

The infrastructures we develop include security solutions and services in all network areas, be it for the rollout of a new technology, for software-defined networks with virtualisation or in cloud computing.

Our solutions:

  • Security for your network and your end customers
  • Remote access solutions
  • L2 MacSec and L3 IPSec encryption
  • Advanced threat protection
  • Intrusion detection & prevention systems
  • DDoS protection
  • Security analyses and consulting
