Interoute to cut costs, increase bandwidth and bolster security compliance with Edge SD-WAN solution.
Interoute, the global cloud and network provider, has been selected by Thule Group, a world-leading sports and outdoor goods company, to deliver Interoute Edge SD-WAN, a software-defined wide area network solution. Interoute will connect 30 of Thule Group’s sites in 14 countries to its enterprise digital platform supporting the group’s growth and digital evolution.
“As we’ve moved to use more cloud and SaaS based applications, we’ve seen increased bandwidth demand and heavy over-utilisation of our network. We needed an underlying network that would allow us to achieve greater flexibility, scalability and control over our IT estate,” said Anders Olsson, director of IT at Thule Group. “Interoute owns an advanced world-class network that offers us a platform unlike any other. With Interoute, we now have a software defined network foundation that offers us the flexibility we need to expand our business, enabling us to grow and evolve without technology limitations.”
“As Thule Group is a world leader in premium products that simplify an active lifestyle, it needs a digital platform that can support its rapid growth into new product categories,” explained Mark Lewis, EVP products & development at Interoute. “Using Interoute Edge, Thule Group can leverage our low-latency global cloud fabric, which will enable Thule Group to benefit from high bandwidth, WAN optimised access to their applications in the data centre and various clouds, all securely meshed to their locations.”
