Smart SD-WAN from Deutsche Telekom Global Business provides network performance improvement for Vanderlande
Vanderlande is making a strategic transition from their current MPLS and VPN based WAN infrastructure to a Smart SD-WAN solution, which connects and accelerates network access and performance worldwide. The global market leader for future-proof logistics process automation at airports and in the parcel market with offices in 30 countries and 6,500 employees, was looking for a future-proof solution including a real-time dashboard enabling the transition to a business-driven IT organization.
Providing flexibility to locations to shorten lead times and lower the total cost of ownership was crucial. In their request Vanderlande emphasized the importance of agility. Vanderlande tested the DT Smart SD-WAN solution powered by Aryaka, and started a Proof-of-Value for their offices in Australia, China, Canada and the data center in the Netherlands to evaluate the solution.
The Proof-of-Value validated the following advantages:
- Up to 25% of bandwidth savings
- Deployment and installation of sites in days, not months
- Real-time visibility of network and applications
- Fully managed service with 24 × 7 deep technical support (CCIE level)
- Flexible use of Local Internet Circuits connected to a guaranteed global private layer 2 backbone leading to high availability and lower latency of the network
“We approached Deutsche Telekom Global Business to address the application performance issues between and within regions in Asia Pacific and North America, which we experienced. The Proof-of-Value was a success and confirmed our requirements. The Smart SD-WAN solution is flexible, scalable, cost-effective and enables our IT organization to support the productivity needs of our workforce.”, says René van Sandijk, CIO Vanderlande.
Vikash Ramnewash, Managing Director of Deutsche Telekom Global Business in the Netherlands: "The Internet opens new options to unlock customer sites. However, unmanaged internet access is often the performance killer when international companies centralize their business-critical applications and/or migrate to the cloud. Our Smart SD-WAN solution powered by Aryaka delivers private network connectivity with End-to-end WAN optimization, so that applications migrated to a central environment or to the cloud perform optimally."
