Reliance Globalcom signs agreement with Sud-Chemie


Reliance Globalcom has signed a five-year agreement with Süd-Chemie, which will see it designing, implementing and managing a new global Wide-Area Network for the German specialty chemicals manufacturer.

Süd-Chemie – the listed, Munich headquartered, innovative international producer of specialty chemicals – required an IP VPN and MPLS solution, including Managed Internet Access and Remote Access Services, connecting 74 office and manufacturing sites across 20 countries worldwide. These included challenging emerging market locations in Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Thailand and China, as well as more established markets across Europe, US, South Africa, Australia, and Singapore.

In September 2008, Süd-Chemie, approached Reliance Globalcom to investigate the cost and network management efficiencies that could be achieved by creating a globally outsourced network that would have the flexibility to provide best-of-breed in-country solutions, whilst also creating a consistent set of service level agreements (SLAs) and management processes.

Reliance Globalcom completed a fully vendor-independent consultation of all the markets in which Süd-Chemie needed to operate, and presented a network design which incorporated significant increases in bandwidth to most of the sites, including the Munich headquarters and the hosting centre, to enable increased redundancy and allow new high bandwidth IP applications to be shared internationally.
