Melexis, a Belgium-based semiconductor supplier for the automotive industry, has selected a fully managed IP network from Verizon Business to enhance its global communications capabilities.
Verizon Private IP will connect more than 800 Melexis employees at 12 locations in Asia, Europe and the US. The scalable, fully managed network also offers a firm foundation, on which the company can deploy future advanced IP communications, including voice-over-internet-protocol applications, said Verizon Business.
With operations dispersed globally and faced with increasing competition worldwide, Melexis decided to consolidate its communications with a single supplier to improve network management and efficiencies. The company wanted to focus on its customers, turning the management of its network to a trusted partner.
In addition, Melexis required a scalable, secure infrastructure with high levels of reliability and speed (low latency); it also wanted a platform that could support its future IP-based services.
Koen Bosmans, global network manager, Melexis said: Our communications infrastructure is the nerve-center of our business and must have the reliability and global reach to effectively support the central ERP system and other business-critical applications integral to our development and production processes. With Verizon Private IP, we are able to streamline dataflow for maximum business efficiency today, as well as plan for the next stage of our IP-based business growth.
Nicholas Walsche, sales director of Verizon Business at Belgium and Luxembourg, said: For companies whose global communications is business-critical, a managed infrastructure can be a real competitive advantage. Verizon Business offers IP-based global communications and IT solutions. Our network is the foundation for offering integrated, secure communications and computing solutions – backed by service guarantees.
