ewl Rechenzentrum AG relies on FASTCOM's SMACS solutions for the security
of its datacenter’s material mantrap

  • ewl Rechenzentrum AG builds a new climate-friendly datacenter, which is to be highly secure and sustainable.

  • In accordance with DATASIGN's design, a high level of security must be implemented.

  • ewl Rechenzentrum AG has chosen FASTCOM's SMACS Mat system to secure access to the datacenter.


Lausanne, Switzerland – 1st February 2023

FASTCOM Technology SA announces the completion of the project with ewl Rechenzentrum AG for its new and energy efficient datacenter. DATASIGN has developed the design of the datacenter and has provided the overall project management. For optimal security of the data center, FASTCOM's SMACS Mat solution has been installed in the material mantrap to ensure that only material passes through the mantrap.

The challenge: ewl Rechenzentrum AG is building a new colocation datacenter in Luzern. The datacenter is to be energy efficient, modular and very modern. Based on many years of experience with such projects, DATASIGN has designed the datacenter. An important point in the design is the security of the flow of people and/or materials. In particular, there is a material mantrap in the datacenter, through which only material should pass. The control must be automatic and special passage processes, such as the emergency exit mode, must be implemented. In addition, the mantrap must be comfortable to use and be optimally adapted to the architecture of the building.


The solution: The SMACS Mat is the solution that meets the needs of securing the material flow through the mantrap. The SMACS system integrates seamlessly into the existing infrastructure. Special modes, including emergency exit mode and specific passage processes are available.

«Fastcom's solution helps us to manage the flow of materials in a simple, secure and auditable way,
both in and out of the data center. Our customers really appreciate it»
