Quantifiable cable reduction

Quantifiable cable reduction

"You can save up to 75 percent on cabling. Furthermore, we have much less hardware and it’s simpler and easier to manage. Without UCS, we would never be able to manage our current customer base with our company size. Coping with those numbers would simply be impossible."

Marco Duschletta, CTO, Member of the Board, i-Community
