  • The GTT Solution

    A next-generation network. A modern WAN architecture

    The discovery process involved several stages, starting with a proof-of-concept, followed by a three-site pilot across Africa and Europe. After a thorough diligence process, Barry Callebaut ultimately chose GTT’s Managed SD-WAN, coupled with its Professional Services package, to help transform its current network and establish its fourth-generation global WAN.

    Manged SD-WAN

    GTT implemented Managed SD-WAN at over 130 Barry Callebaut sites. The SD-WAN solution integrates VMware SD-WAN technology with GTT’s industry-leading global Tier 1 internet backbone that connects to six continents, providing private and direct cloud connectivity. GTT’s SD-WAN also enhances the performance of businesscritical and supply chain applications for Barry Callebaut. Most of the manufacturer’s sites feature dual connectivity with a mix of Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) links, ensuring continuous connectivity should one line fail.
