AT&T* and K+S have signed a five-year contract to move K+S’s current network infrastructure to AT&T’s single global private network. This will enable K+S to connect its operations, comprising 200 locations in Europe, North and South America and Asia.
"We are looking forward working with AT&T as the optimal provider for this project,” said Kai Finke, Chief Information Officer, K+S AG.
AT&T is providing a hybrid virtual private network (VPN) service to K+S. Data flowing over its MPLS connections is complemented by a secondary Internet connection. This ensures the largest K+S locations have highly reliable access to the company’s global MPLS network. A second VPN connection offers the benefits of back-up and efficient use of network bandwidth. Other K+S locations can have secure, cost-effective Internet access locking these sites to the network.
“It’s clear that K+S wanted better visibility of its communications around the world. And that’s just what our strategic network services are designed to give them, providing them with a platform for supporting their future success,” said Vice President, Germany and Central Europe, AT&T, Joachim Kathmann.
