- Flexible SD-WAN to connect facilities across Europe, Asia and Latin America
- Supports cloud applications through managed solutions and consulting expertise
Weener Plastics, a global supplier of innovative and value-added packaging solutions, has signed a five-year, managed SD-WAN agreement with Orange Business Services to support its global expansion. Rolling out Flexible SD-WAN across 24 sites in Europe, Asia and Latin America, Weener Plastics will increase agility and flexibility in its organization, as well as improve internal communication.
Weener Plastics offers standard, as well as tailor-made and innovative packaging solutions for its multinational customers. The company, which has expanded globally through acquisitions, needed an agile solution to support its rapid growth and access to cloud-based applications, such as Office 365 and ERP software. In addition, Weener Plastics wanted a managed solution to allow its teams to focus on their core manufacturing business.
To keep up with changing customer demands, it is important that Weener Plastics is physically present in its customers’ countries of operation. Weener Plastics chose Orange Business Services because of its extensive experience with SD-WAN, but also for its strong local presence and homogenous portfolio of managed services and applications across all the countries and regions in which it operates.
