This global manufacturer of high-end automotive components and subassemblies needed to rapidly reach distant countries from its European headquarters. Its global WAN was shared by two service providers. Both had problems providing connectivity to far-flung sites.
A hybrid WAN was the preferred alternative. The company chose Tata Communications’ Global VPN and IZO™ Internet WAN services in combination with secure worldwide Internet access. A careful 12-month transition mitigated the risk of a big bang changeover.
As well as escaping the expense and complexity of two separate service providers, the solution has made the organisation more agile. The ability to connect new sites in days rather than months is complemented by security and resilience better than the best offered before.
