Elopak, inventor of the first paperboard carton, has selected Verizon Business to provide a managed private IP network linking 40 offices worldwide.
The company is seeking to increase the cost-efficiency of its network by 25% by consolidating its communications infrastructure onto a single managed platform. It also wants to improve the reliability of the service.
Elopak’s corporate IT director Bjørn Moshuus said, “Elopak has sites in three continents, and communications has been challenging for us due to poor reliability, cost and lack of coverage.
“Verizon Business' global IP reach has given us a reliable and secure connection, which enables us to focus on our business. All our workers can now benefit from the same high-quality connectivity, whether they are remote mobile workers or located within our sites.”
The packaging giant employs more than 2,500 people who rely on applications and communications tools hosted on Elopak’s hubs in Norway and North America.
Verizon has provided Elopak with a variety of access routes to these hubs - with DSL connections to the packaging firm’s smaller sites and high bandwidth Ethernet and fibre for the larger ones - tailoring the network to the varying demand levels and budgets of the different sites.
