ENDRESS + HAUSER at a glance
MPLS TO SD-WAN MIGRATION
LOW LATENCY AND MAXIMUM AVAILABILITY
Endress+Hauser Group has developed into a leading supplier of measuring instruments, services and solutions for industrial process engineering.
Due to the shift of many services to the cloud, the previous MPLS network was no longer able to meet the requirements of the business. It lacked scalable bandwidth able to calibrate to the highspeed requirements for certain data transfer applications

Successful conversion despite pandemic
The pilot project started in February 2020 and began with the conversion from an MPLS network to GTT’s SD-WAN technology. An initial challenge at this point was the impact to business of the global pandemic, which made business operations around the world difficult for countless companies.
GTT’s agile project management also enabled the implementation of individualized solutions for Endress+Hauser, despite the more difficult conditions caused by the pandemic. The last sites were successfully converted in November 2020.
Low latency and maximum availability
A major advantage of GTT’s SD-WAN technology for Endress+Hauser is the peering between providers. This supports the group of companies, particularly in its intensive use of Microsoft 365, significantly reducing the distance between the company and the Microsoft backbone and enabling low latency.
Endress+Hauser also appreciates the parallel connectivity that is possible with the SD-WAN overlay. This allows the group to use the most efficient line to get the requested resources as quickly as possible. In addition, the workload for Endress+Hauser’s IT department has been reduced by having the service fully managed by GTT.
