Super-functional network devices ensure seamless collaboration around the world for Fisher & Paykel
AT&T FlexWare provides flexible solutions to company locations with varying network needs.
The quality household appliance manufacturer needed its distributed design centers across the world to have the ability to collaborate through a reliable and cost-effective solution.
AT&T FlexWare, a network that responds to business needs in real time. Designed and deployed on the AT&T Integrated Cloud platform that leverages Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies, AT&T FlexWare simplifies Fisher & Paykel’s network infrastructure while potentially lowering capital investments.
Each site needs only one FlexWare device, which enables multiple functionalities. And the ability to dial those functions up or down per site need gives Fisher & Paykel hands-on control of its platforms, which saves them money by eliminating the need to purchase third-party products.
