Photo 3 | Industrial style combined with color design accents that shape the space - in Axians' Hamburg office, the two business units "IT Security" and "Networks & Solutions" work closely together.
Photo 4 | A look at the former control station of the NOC team makes it quite clear: There was a need for optimization here!
Photo 5 | JST control room: A lot has changed in the Network Operations Center, and not just visually. In particular, the functionality and flexibility of modern control station technology impress both employees and visitors from the ICT specialists' customer base.
Photo 6 | JST control room tables: Whether viewed from the front or the rear: The Stratos X11® operator console conveys a clean, uncluttered image. The access panels conceal generously sized, illuminated supply compartments. These offer sufficient space for technology and large quantities of cables, thus creating a perfect visual appearance in the control station.
Photo 7 | JST data visualization wall: The video wall in the Axians NOC is the focal point for the operator team's work. Thanks to control via MultiConsoling® technology, applications can be switched from the workstation to the video wall as needed, making them visible to all employees there.
Photo 8 | JST myLogin®: Automated login and logout process via smart card. Centrally, securely and quickly, operators can log in at any workstation according to their approvals. All they need is the access card that each employee already holds.
Photo 9 | JST MultiConsoling®: The intuitive myGUI® user interface shows each operator the available sources of the control station. With one click, computers, cameras, etc. can be displayed in real time on the workstation monitors, on single displays of the video wall or as BigPicture across several screens. The system control with MultiConsoling® makes it possible. Another special feature: Only one mouse and keyboard are required per workstation to operate everything in real time.

ICT experts use JST know-how for Network Operations Center
An international network, in-depth ICT (Information and Communication Technology) know-how and IT specialists who, with their practical solutions, have an eye on a market that is constantly changing – in the sign of the digital transition, Axians supports their customers in complex transformation processes. In order to fulfill this requirement even more efficiently, Axians has moved into a new domicile in Hamburg. With the support of the control room professionals from JST – Jungmann Systemtechnik, a NOC (Network Operations Center) was implemented there.
As the saying goes, “In life, you always see each other twice” – or even a third time. At any rate, this is true for Oliver Schnau, who has already realized the third control room in cooperation with the JST team. “When the name JST came up in the context of plans for the new NOC, it immediately “clicked” with me,” recalls the Axians Head of Service.
"Two projects, twice very good experiences"
The first meeting with the control room experts was more than 20 years ago, but Oliver Schnau has not forgotten: “Two projects, twice very good experiences! There were no reservations on my part.” So he was particularly interested in what has happened on the market? How has Jungmann Systemtechnik developed over the past decades?
Convincing workshop - helpful and smart
The workshop in JST’s control room simulator was a really positive surprise for the experienced IT specialist: “We looked at all the options available for our Network Operations Center there. During the workshop, we were able to try everything out and determine: What makes sense? In this way, many good approaches developed, which eventually became a convincing concept.” Oliver Schnau: “That was both helpful and very smart.”
Video Wall as a new team player for the NOC
Among other things, the ICT experts opted for a new team player in their control center: the video wall. The lcd displays provide information for the entire team, offer event-controlled alerting options and can be operated intuitively in real time thanks to innovative control technology via JST MultiConsoling®.

VM access: convenient and scalable
Oliver Schnau also mentions another advantage of using MultiConsoling®: In combination with the system, the JST GrabberVM® were installed at the same time. “This allows us to access our virtual applications very conveniently. In addition, supplements and changes that we are constantly confronted with here can be adapted very easily. A real advantage that makes the whole thing fast, convenient and particularly efficient.
"Head of Service: I think that's great!"
Looking back on the third project he realized together with JST, Oliver Schnau also draws an all-around positive balance: “At JST, it’s plain and simple “where we are is up front and let’s go” – I think that’s great! We were really taken by the hand and guided through the project.” The Head of Service in the Axians NOC has an apt explanation for the smooth process: “There were clear requirements placed on us to be able to use the advantages and benefits. When you get into it, you realize that it makes the project run very straight and time-optimized, with no stumbling blocks.”
