Through a GATT/WTO tender, the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) was looking for a complete SD-WAN solution provider for up to 10,000 mobile routers, central VPN concentrators and a management system for easy administration. The mobile routers serve as secure network access points via any technology (mobile radio, WLAN, WAN) for the increasingly digitalised SBB infrastructure. To this end, the SBB’s different internal networks (e.g. office/infrastructure) must be connected to a central network via the same VPN tunnel and securely separated using multi-VRF separation.

Thanks to our flexible and customisable SD-WAN architecture, we were able to beat the leaders in the Gartner Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure. onway will also be responsible for all maintenance and support covering the entire infrastructure for an initial period of nine years with an option to extend.
