IP-VPN the order of the day

Multinational manufacturing firm Saint Gobain has signed up AT&T in a three-year networking contract worth $8.5m.

AT&T will provide the company with an IP-VPN across 250 sites in three countries - Japan, Korea and the US.

The VPN will use MPLS switching to allow the French firm to priortise data across the network.

Saint Gobain, which supplies car glass and home insulation, is spending €300m on research and development and will be putting the new networking to use as part of business development and to lower operating costs.
