Shorter response times and proactive actions improve service

VGF wanted to replace its IT infrastructure management systems with a unified, scalable solution. Following the implementation of CA Spectrum (now DX NetOps Spectrum) by DICOS, a certified partner of Broadcom, the team of administrators now benefited from a convenient management system.




Switches throughout the city area

Maximizing the Potential of the network

Automated administration processes
Faster response times for queries
Better utilization of existing resources
Improved fault detection

Thanks to the introduction of DX NetOps, VGF now has a transparent and comprehensive overview of the entire network infrastructure at a central point. Furthermore, numerous administration processes have been automated and the work of the IT team has been optimized. Internal customer service for the specialist departments has also improved considerably, as response times for queries have been drastically reduced. The clear representation of the network topology and its components also led to better utilization of existing resources. Based on the data provided by DX NetOps, load distribution can be more clearly visualized and allocated accordingly. In addition, fault detection has been improved because DX NetOps visualizes potential problems before they can affect the network and its performance.


Thanks to DX NetOps, our service runs more smoothly, which has significantly reduced the number of complaints.

Unified tools and automation create transparency

VGF is responsible for public transport in the Main metropolis. Nine subway and ten streetcar lines with over 400 rail vehicles ensure comprehensive mobility. IT is essential for operations, because the availability of the network and its components stands and falls with it.

VGF’s network is connected by miles of fiber optic cables and distributed across the entire urban area of the Main metropolis. It comprises many components, including 250 switches, which are important for customer service at stops. Until now, VGF used two different solutions to monitor the complex network infrastructure. “However, these no longer offered the range of functions required in a modern IT environment with its constantly growing data volumes and real-time applications,” explains Nico Stübinger.

The cooperation with DICOS

For the introduction of DX NetOps, VGF has brought on board the long-standing Broadcom partner DICOS. DICOS has the necessary experience with complex network structures and knows the solution inside out. Based on a proof of concept, the DICOS specialists installed a unified platform for network management that covers VGF’s entire catalog of requirements.


The solution offers us an incredible range of functions, with which we can handle all administration procedures and automate numerous routine processes. Today, we have the ability to monitor the entire network infrastructure in a uniform manner, capturing all devices as well as components.

Thanks to DX NetOps from Broadcom, the network is now completely covered with a single tool. The use of auto discovery makes it easier to locate and identify the causes of errors. This enables proactive action and significantly simplifies fault resolution.
