Published 22 Jan 2019

ArcelorMittal Ostrava is the largest steelmaker in the Czech Republic, and their local factory is a part of the ArcelorMittal steel and mining group. ArcelorMittal Ostrava‘s network environment has been running for twenty years, uniquely combining old and new technologies while maintaining efficiency and investing in cutting-edge IT solutions. Due to the legacy network and the challenge of managing a multi-vendor environment, ArcelorMittal decided to search for a new network management tool to begin upgrading their network. After an exhaustive search for the right fit, the IT infrastructure department decided to purchase the all-in-one solution from Extreme Networks.
