Epson Chooses Managed SD-WAN Solution of Avit Group

Vianen- Epson chooses the Managed SD-WAN solution of System Integrator and Managed Service Provider Avit Group. The partnership between both organizations is strengthened with the addition of this new service. Avit will provide Managed SD-WAN for the next 3 years. This move ensures that Epson saves costs with a future-proof and scalable solution, connects new locations easier and faster, and gets a more reliable network. By outsourcing the management via Managed Services, Epson can focus on its core business.

Long-term Partnership
After a successful proof-of-concept with the SD-WAN technology, Epson went looking for the right partner. Important criteria were knowledge of the technology and the business of Epson and a partner who can deliver a managed service for all aspects. In Avit, Epson found this partner, partly based on the previous successful cooperation around the delivery of a Cisco Collaboration solution and Cisco hardware. Over the past year, in preparation of the Managed SD-WAN solution, Avit has worked with Epson to start replacing the MPLS connections.

Michel Aarssen, Senior Network Infrastructure Specialist ICTI at Epson Europe: "In Avit, we found the partner that has knowledge of the technology and can grow with us. In addition, because of our previous collaborations they understand our business challenges well and have shown to have the right knowledge and skills. For us, these are the reasons to outsource SD-WAN to Avit as well. I'm looking forward to deepening the cooperation in the coming three years. ”

Umut Kiliçarslan, Industry Sector Unit Manager at Avit, said, "I am proud of the trust placed by Epson in Avit as a partner and as a new Managed SD-WAN service provider. Over the past year, we have been working with Epson and other customers to optimize our Managed services. As a result, we can truly unburden our customers and are able to enter into long-term partnerships. Together with Epson, we will also make the deployment of our Managed SD-WAN solution a success in the coming years.”
