Royal Vopak, a tank terminal operator, has signed a five year agreement with Vanco, a virtual network operator, for the design, implementation and management of a new global wide area network.
Vanco will deploy a hybrid IP network, using Ethernet, MPLS and IP Sec technologies, providing end-to-end connectivity for 83 Vopak offices and terminals in 28 countries. The Vanco solution will replace a variety of global, regional and local solutions that Vopak presently uses.
Ted Raffetto, CEO of Vanco US, said: Our new solution will not only offer secure, reliable and cost-effective worldwide connectivity, but also valuable insight into all communications costs. As well as this, Vopak will enjoy the flexibility to deploy new technologies as and when they emerge.
