Aachen, December 2, 2019—In the “Professional User Rating IT Operations” study published for the first time by analysts techconsult, right from the start it was the German network infrastructure supplier LANCOM Systems who successfully jumped to the front row. More than 1,400 user companies rated their experiences of “Network Management & Monitoring” solutions. The LANCOM Management Cloud secured a place among the “Champions” with an overall rating that was well above average.


Users particularly valued the solution’s capabilities. Respondents gave high marks for the organization, optimization and control of the network architecture as well as the system’s ability to dynamically adapt to changing requirements. The most valued aspect of the LANCOM Management Cloud is its high availability. The LMC also achieved top marks for its user-friendliness: The network management solution received extremely high ratings for its ease of installation, implementation, and the dashboard’s usability. The majority of the user companies claim to be highly satisfied with the solution and would recommend it.


The solution’s consistently above-average ratings are matched by an equally outstanding manufacturer rating. Users particularly appreciate the service and support with hotline, live chat and a support portal. The leading German manufacturer of network and security solutions for business and the public sector also scored highly on transparency and choice. The majority of the companies surveyed would source a solution from LANCOM again.
