  • The GTT Solution

    A reliable network underpinning a high-quality, secure online customer experience

    Distrelec’s hybrid WAN ensures sites and systems have assured connectivity in place, minimizing the potential business risks of downtime. The solution is supported by the global Tier 1 internet network owned and operated by GTT. This ensures the company has high-performance, low-latency connectivity to any location in the world and every application in the cloud. Because the Distrelec website is directly connected to one of the world’s largest internet backbones with Points-of-Presence around the world, shoppers are rarely more than a couple of “hops” away between their own internet service provider’s network and GTT’s network backbone. This reduces latency and improves the web shop browsing experience

    Optimized connectivity to the cloud

    Distrelec uses Microsoft 365 and AWS for running much of its business and web presence infrastructure, complemented by other systems hosted in the cloud and data centers. GTT’s internet backbone can serve to connect the company’s users between locations and optimize traffic to reach any cloud providers and internet destinations. As Distrelec expands its business to new locations in the future, it can do so confident that GTT can support it with any connectivity requirement globally.

    Unified communications for flexible collaboration

    Distrelec leverages GTT’s SIP Trunking service together with Microsoft Teams to create a truly unified communications and collaboration platform. GTT is directly peered with Microsoft. Users are able to enjoy the many rich collaboration features of Microsoft Teams supported by the low-latency connectivity between The service includes telephone numbers for all purposes with global termination. Distrelec engaged GTT and a partner to migrate to Microsoft Teams from an end-of-life Microsoft Skype for Business service. GTT’s expertise in supporting SIP Trunking direct routing to Microsoft Teams contributed to a quick and seamless uptake among Distrelec’s users.

    A protected enterprise network from a single provider

    Working with GTT, Distrelec has all its connectivity, voice and security needs met through a single supplier, which ensures ease of supplier management. GTT delivers managed firewalls and VPN concentrators to protect the company’s network and to ensure traffic is exchanged securely between users, regardless of location, as well as with its chosen supply chain and distribution partners. Distrelec also relies on GTT for protecting its web shop and any other internet-exposed applications against DDoS attacks with a cloud-based mitigation solution.
