Issues and challenges

Kordsa Global is a world leader in nylon and polyester yarn, cord fabric and single-end cord production, with a focus on serving the tire reinforcement and mechanical rubber markets. From its headquarters in Istanbul, it has around 4,500 employees operating in nine countries: Argentina, Brazil, China, Egypt, Germany, Indonesia, Thailand, Turkey and the USA across five continents.

Over it 37-year history, the company has maintained a market-leading position, has grown steadily and today is a major organization. However, growth has placed pressure on internal communications and on the systems and applications needed to manage this complex, highly distributed organization. It was evident that the voice and data network had to have increased flexibility and capability to match the demands of the business, in particular in ensuring high availability and performance of the business-critical applications upon which it relies.

"In order to ensure business continuity and to support our business-critical applications, we needed a stable, reliable and flexible global network infrastructure. The Orange team developed the optimum solution by defining the technologies and designs that would best achieve our objectives in the long term."

Tekin Gulsen, Global IT Director, Kordsa Global
