Zyxel Connects Belgian Brewery IT Network with Bottling Plant

When the centuries-old De Halve Maan brewing company was looking to improve overall efficiency for its operations in the famed Belgian brewing city of Bruges, they left no stone unturned. While installing a pipeline to transport the company’s products from their brewery to bottling plant, they realized the same tunnel could be used to move more than beer. The pipe provided a means to connect the two facilities’ outdated legacy networks via fiber-optic cable. The brewer didn’t stop there, overhauling both outdated networks with a comprehensive Nebula Solution from Zyxel. Now, both beer and data flow smoothly beneath the ancient streets of Bruges.

The central IT network leads to more productivity and more efficient work: “Given the excavation work for the beer pipeline, it was a logical step to also build a fiber optic network. The big change this entailed was that both the brewery employees and the bottling plant employees can now work on one network.”
