Case Study

Rolling out hybrid cloud services across Europe.

Colt Technology Service’s service delivery model was taking too long to create and roll out new services. The company needed to shift to a more agile model while still maintaining the same quality and responsiveness that Colt is known for.

“The partnership between Juniper and Colt is based on trust, a deep level of engagement, shared expertise, and a passion for delivering the best solution for our customers.”

Colt Technology Services provides managed IT services, networking, and communications solutions to more than 30,000 European businesses and government customers. A pioneer of Ethernet and IP/MPLS networks in Europe, Colt’s network spans 22 countries.

Business Challenge

To address evolving customer requirements, Colt wanted a network that could deliver Ethernet and IP services more flexibly, while containing operational and capital costs. Colt also needed a long-term plan to deliver hybrid and scalable cloud-enabled services to its customers.

Business Solution

Colt chose the MX960 3D Universal Edge Router as the best platform for delivering next-generation, scalable network services. The MX Series supports IP routing and switching requirements as well as future carrier Ethernet demands. Juniper also collaborated closely with Colt to develop Virtual CPE capabilities, the next step in its high-performance, cost-effective, cloud-based vCPE solution.

Business Results

Innovation with Virtual CPE is delivering significant business benefits to Colt and its customers. Colt can innovate faster and introduce new services more quickly and cost-effectively, without the need for complex upgrades at the customer site.

“Juniper has a very strong product that can be used as a next-generation network foundation. Juniper is one of our key partners enabling us to realize our vision,” said Nicolas Fischbach, Director of Network and Platform Strategy and Architecture at Colt.
