Post merger,
publisher achieves
network savings. 

Unified platform supports
operations and prepares for
future collaboration.

Challenge

With office locations around the world and a workforce of more than 20,000, the publisher struggled with a complicated network infrastructure.

  • The merger of two companies resulted in a complex, multi-vendor network
  • An expensive, dormant private IP line served as backup
  • Continued investment in current infrastructure limited future options

Solution

The publisher was able to unify its network across all locations.

  • An SD WAN deployment unified the network
  • Verizon integrated internet backup and local internet break out
  • The company pilot tested Unified Communications and Collaboration as a Service (UCCaaS) in two locations

Outcome

The publisher was able to align network operations with business requirements via a dynamic software-defined network to improve performance while reducing network costs.

  • 900k+ savings compared with legacy dual PIP
  • 20,000+ connected employees
  • 9 enhanced flows to improve application response time
