Biotechnology company Chr. Hansen's Australian offices will move to a private IP network as part of their headquarters' decision to link all global sites.
The Danish multinational, which produces food ingredients, will link 47 international sites on five continents, including Australia, with an MPLS-based (multiprotocol label switching) private IP network managed by Verizon Business. Verizon will replace Chr. Hansen's four existing regional network services providers.
The company said in a statement it would better prioritise data traffic with the new network, and centralise some applications such as ERP for use across its business globally.
"We expect that our new MPLS network will make it easier for us to support our users around the world, and we are looking forward to gain the business benefits," said Mikael Ludvigsen, CIO, vice president, global IT, Chr. Hansen.
"We are confident that this new technology will provide us with greater business resilience and flexibility, as well as more opportunities to prioritise data traffic and allocate bandwidth to our different business-critical applications."
