A few months ago “Machineseeker Group” from Essen (Germany) approached us with a request to optimize their existing infrastructure and add new, smart solutions to their headquarter.

Machineseeker Group is known through the portal “machineseeker.com” in Germany and is “the leading online marketplace for used machinery. More than 8,100 dealers advertise in excess of 200,000 machines on our platform. (…) Machineseeker is available worldwide in over 60 country versions. Since 1999, Machineseeker has been growing profitably every year and is continuously reinforcing its team at the Essen headquarters.” (Source: https://company.maschinensucher.de/, status 11/2020). The company currently has around 50 employees in Essen.

It quickly became clear to us that we would be happy to advise this young, ambitious company from the Ruhr area on the appropriate hardware and software to provide a fast network (including reliable VoiP). Machineseeker now has a fast managed LAN that is equipped with the highest quality components from the JUNIPER EX series: The EX series is characterized by excellent performance at the access layer. It is known for high availability for business-critical applications. With multi-gigabit ports it is also future-proof. The EX series impresses with its efficient operation with low power consumption and high performance. In course of the new setup, the company’s Sophos-based WiFi was taken over, which will be managed by us in future. The same applies to the Sophos firewalls.

We wish Machineseeker Group all the best with their successfull business and look forward to continued good cooperation!
