Valmet has chosen Elisa, a Finnish pioneer in telecommunications and digital services, as its prime partner to provide global network, data security and network management services for the company. Working closely with Vodafone Business, Elisa will monitor and manage the data traffic of Valmet’s network and its local area network in more than 150 locations on five different continents. The Elisa solution enables Valmet’s business growth via new digitalised services and customer experiences and is one of the most automated network solutions in the world.
“The overall solution offered by Elisa and Vodafone Business met our needs perfectly when we were looking for a new next-generation network solution,” said Janne Puustinen, CIO, Valmet. “Our objective was to find a global solution that would be as comprehensive as possible to support a shift from a typical corporate network-centric operating environment towards a cloud-enabled global digital platform.”
The SD-WAN network solution, implemented by Elisa, builds on three mainstays: advanced network automation, reliable network architecture and an international partner network. The partner network includes Vodafone, a leading telecommunications company in Europe and Africa.
Elisa’s advanced Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) makes it possible to manage services outside physical networks, enabling global network management and monitoring. Software-defined networks provide an excellent basis for making rapid changes to the network according to business needs and for taking full advantage of automation in Valmet’s next-generation network solution.
“It’s an honour to have the responsibility for the operation and quality of Valmet’s global network solution,” said Anna-Mari Ylihurula Vice President, Corporate Customers, Elisa. “Thanks to the automation, transparency and performance of the network, we are able to support Valmet’s business in different business situations. The cooperation with Valmet’s network and data security services is a great continuum for our long-term cooperation.”Click below to share this article
