Skullcandy Deploys Level 3's MPLS-based VPN Solutions to Improve Communication
Level 3 Communications (News - Alert), a provider of multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) and virtual private network (VPN) solutions, has just revealed that Skullcandy, a global manufacturer of headphones, earbuds and headsets, has implemented its VPN and SIP solutions.
The development is part of that company’s efforts to improve communication among key corporate locations in North America and China.
Skullcandy products are sold in more than 70 countries around the world. The rapid growth of the business has placed a strain on their existing network. To address this challenge, Skullcandy turned to Level 3.
"We are delighted to help Skullcandy improve the efficiency and quality of their communications," said Andrew Crouch, Level 3 regional president of North America Sales, in a statement. "Our VPN and SIP solutions give them the flexibility, reliability and quality they need to support the demands of their business today and as they continue to grow in the future."
The MPLS provider will assist Skullcandy in building a global IP virtual private network (VPN) that enables the company to share massive digital image files with its manufacturer in China, as well as support customer service, employee communications and the day-to-day communications within operations.
Skullcandy will benefit from Level 3's IP VPN solution as it provides enterprise-class metro and wide area network services over a private, dedicated MPLS infrastructure.
Further, the headset maker is also relying on Level 3's Enterprise SIP solution as part of its efforts to consolidate voice services and support its customer service operations. With Level 3’s SIP-based services in place, enterprises can seamlessly integrate voice and data on a single network, creating tangible network and operational expense savings.
Brent Allen, Skullcandy's senior technology manager added, "Level 3's network and SIP solutions have improved the consistency and reliability of our communications. We now have the peace of mind of knowing that our communications network and our SIP-based phone systems are high quality, cost-efficient and dependable."
