Cavotec MSL Group Entrusts Its Global Communications to Verizon Business

READING, England - The Cavotec MSL Group, a global leader in power supply solutions, has entrusted its global communications infrastructure to Verizon Business, as Cavotec MSL transitions to an IP-based communications environment.

A fully managed Verizon Private IP solution will provide secure, high-speed connectivity for Cavotec MSL's operations around the world, and will also serve as the foundation for the company's migration to IP-enabled communications. Verizon Managed IP PBX from the Verizon voice-over-Internet protocol (VoIP) portfolio will also enhance the company's PBX capabilities, enabling it to realize the flexibility, enhanced network-management and cost benefits of VoIP technology.

Cavotec MSL, headquartered in New Zealand and with its corporate offices in Switzerland, develops environmentally friendly engineering solutions that help businesses to improve their energy-efficiency capabilities. With operations in 30 countries around the world, the company relies on the seamless flow of confidential information and technical expertise across its global network to service the requirements of its customers.

This information flow is also critical to the company's desire to be perceived as "local everywhere." The company therefore set out to identify a partner with the global reach, expertise and capability to develop a centralized communications network to connect its manufacturing Centres of Excellence, local manufacturing units, and global sales and marketing teams. 

"Our communications infrastructure is critical to the success of our global business, and we are clear that IP-based communications will play a key role in enabling future business growth," said Geir Leret Andersen, corporate IT manager, Cavotec MSL Group. "Our customers expect to receive the same level of technical expertise and service wherever they are based in the world, so the timely and secure exchange of information is crucial.  Verizon Business gives us the capabilities we require today, but also has the experience, global reach and capability to support our future business needs."

Stuart Curzon, group vice president of international sales, Verizon Business EMEA, said, "Cavotec MSL, like many multinational corporations, considers its move to IP telephony as critical to its future business success. We are confident that Verizon Business can support Cavotec MSL in achieving its IP-enabled future and realizing the business benefits IP telephony can deliver."

Today, Verizon Business manages 260,000-plus devices on more than 4,200 customer networks in 142 countries and territories, overseeing non-Verizon connections from more than 60 network providers around the world.  Verizon Business' industry-leading service-level commitments and award-winning IMPACT management platform underscore its legacy of service and innovation.  Verizon Business also offers a suite of professional network and security services to help customers successfully deploy and manage their IP networks.
