The GTT Solution

Managed SD-WAN overlay.

GTT delivered Managed SD-WAN as an overlay for Elopak’s existing MPLS-based WAN expanding and integrating its internet connectivity into a single, hybrid WAN. The service covers approximately 30 sites, across the Nordics, mainland Europe, Israel, Canada and the US.

Each site uses MPLS as primary lines, complemented by dedicated internet or broadband as backup, in an active-active configuration. The internet lines are also used for local breakout at each site, which can leverage GTT’s Tier 1 internet backbone to optimize traffic to the major cloud providers that peer with GTT. To meet the increased requirement for remote working at the start of the pandemic, GTT worked with Elopak to quickly increase the network capacity needed to ensure its managed secure access service could support the sudden spike in remote-user numbers.

Supported governance model

Elopak applies a strict phase-gate process for any new technology deployments. An internal committee reviews a given solution before implementation and ensures accountability for the deliverables.
