Equant has signed a three-year IP VPN contract, including consulting and professional services, with Hummingbird Ltd.

The IP VPN solution will integrate Hummingbird offices to effectively run mission-critical applications, including CRM and ERP.

On the release note, Hummingbird explains it chosen Equant’s IP VPN solution, based on MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) technology. The fully managed solution will interconnect 20 Hummingbird offices based in Canada, the U.S., Europe, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Australia. Additional services include Extended Service Management, Project Management, Application Performance Analysis and Professional Services Consulting. In addition, Hummingbird has engaged Equant to provide a consulting assessment for its messaging systems and is also considering utilizing Equant IP VPN’s voice-specific and video-specific classes of service (CoS) to cost-effectively converge its voice and video traffic with its data and IP communications.

‘With five classes of service to prioritize traffic and `plug and play’ capabilities for our offices, Equant’s IP VPN solution is an application-enabler that has also simplified integration issues associated with a company of our size,’ said Leo Heffernan, Vice President of Information Technology at Hummingbird. ‘Equant consultants helped us design the best solution for our specific needs, and a package of Professional Services will support us as we expand the capabilities and reach of our network.’
