Varo has signed a contract with BT to connect 55 locations in Switzerland, Germany and the Benelux countries.
Varo requires seamless and reliable connectivity between its oil distribution terminals, refineries, storage locations, data centres and office sites. This also includes video surveillance at a number of sites.
BT has designed a resilient hybrid network, combining its IP Connect network with high performance internet connectivity. Each site will be connected using two separate lines to achieve a high degree of resiliency against failure.
David Newton, CIO at Varo, says: 'By migrating the network to a single supplier, we will simplify the management of our operations. The new, harmonised network will also give us more agility and provide a solid platform from which we can launch new services fuelling our growth.'
