Belron Inks MPLS Deal with Easynet Global Services
Belron, the world’s largest vehicle glass repair and replacement company, has recently entered into a three-year agreement with Easynet Global Services, worth $7 million.
As per this newly signed contract, Easynet Global Services will be responsible for creating a new MPLS network across the U.K., France and Ireland. An MPLS network is designed to increase reliability and support strong service level agreements.
The multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) infrastructure will help to improve business application performance, support unified communications and power a new cloud strategy.
Belron’s operation spans over 30 countries and is home to over 25,000 employees. The company continues to expand at a rapid pace and has doubled its workload in the past five years alone.
In a press release, Mike Parkington, IT vendor and procurement manager for Belron said, “For us, the network is the driving force for our business. Each day we send out thousands of mobile technicians,” he said. “The technicians need to know where to go, to whom they’re speaking, what glass to use, how to bill customers and to record each job once complete. They are supported by hundreds of back office staff with totally different communication needs.”
He added, “Secure and monitored applications, systems and processes, and the ability to take advantage of cloud computing are at the core of our business, and Easynet has proved the perfect partner.”
Easynet provides a host of products to help businesses achieve their goals. Some of these services include managed networking solutions, hosting partnerships, video conferencing, voice IP-based solution, managed firewall, professional services, and a content management solution.
Last year, TMCnet reported that Easynet Global Services unveiled its Smart MPLS. This solution combines the normal performance orientated approach of packet loss, latency and jitter with a new innovative, application orientated management structure.
