ČEZ ENERGO - Supply of ICT services

The subject of delivery is the Outsourcing of IT services - support in the field of technological network services.

At the beginning of this collaboration, our company is going to take care of the reconfiguration of about 150 Mikrotik routers with regard to security rules, treatment of ports and accesses. All security settings were done within the framework of IKB's cyber security, which is given a lot of attention.

With the cooperation of the TEDOM company, access to the Mikrotik network will be prepared by setting up a VPN tunnel, so that we can set up all end devices individually according to individual locations and relevant devices. Implementation and configuration will take place on-site (Backup, firmware upgrade and reconfiguration, or deployment of security rules).

Following the initial setup, we then have to manage these 150 active terminal elements, continuous supervision and firmware updates, including the resolution of error states and cooperation in the resolution of events and incidents. We will also prepare Mikrotik routers for new installations and take care of subsequent service.

RouterOS Mikrotik DUDE is used for online monitoring of Mikrotik endpoints.

In connection with the mentioned activities, passportization (updating existing documentation) will be carried out at the same time.

This solution has several advantages:

  • SLA fulfillment at 98% - approx. 7.3 days/year, i.e. approx. 0.61 days/month.
  • As a follow-up to the SVR project, a substantial part of transport costs can be saved by using the coordination of the aforementioned services. Planned trips to the site can be combined with SVR switchboard prophylactics, including increasing the operational safety of the KGJ control system.
  • Mikrotik is the standard technology used by Domat Control System.
  • Full use of EDGE BOX technology (dual connectivity to the Internet, use of both channels).
  • Due to our expertise and many years of experience in the field of measurement and regulation, we will also provide support for the management of other technologies in this area.
  • The Outsourcing of IT services project will bring greater security of transmitted data and optimization of connectivity, including IKB.
