by CXOtoday Staff    Sep 25, 2008


Chemical company BASF has outsourced its wide area network management in the Asia Pacific region. Its WAN covers 17 countries and 234 sites.

BT will manage WAN for the company.

BASF can now access a harmonized network platform in all 80 connected countries globally based on the MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) standard.

It is also using BT’s IP-based MPLS network to transmit voice calls and video data between locations worldwide, partially using encryption for higher data security.

Said Marian-Joachim Scholtysik, BASF Group, This guarantees uniform technical standards and processes at all sites and reduces the effort to manage the solution.
