TANDBERG Selects Verizon Business to Support Advanced Global Collaboration

OSLO, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

  Managed Private IP Network Supports High Bandwidth and Visual Communication  

                         Among 50 Sites Worldwide

    TANDBERG, a leading global provider of telepresence, high-definition video conferencing, and

mobile video products and services, has selected a Verizon Business Private IP solution for the

company's worldwide corporate communications network. The fully managed solution will connect

50 of TANDBERG's key sites around the world, helping the company to collaborate effectively both

internally and with its customers, suppliers and partners.

    TANDBERG has almost 1,500 employees worldwide, working from dual headquarters in New

York and Norway, and from global offices across Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South

America. TANDBERG conducts more than 2,500 video-conference meetings daily to drive its

business success and connect its global workforce without the need to travel. The company's

mission is to change the way people communicate, and, by using its own visual communications

technology, TANDBERG is better able to equip its own employees to support their customers. 

    Torbjorn Eeg Larsen, chief information officer for TANDBERG, said: "We practice what we

preach. Our employees rely on our visual communications tools as a natural way to collaborate. We

needed a network that could support our internal and external communications needs, and Verizon

Private IP has the global reach, scalability, capacity and security to meet our evolving IP

communications needs.  The network enables us to bring together our employees face-to-face, no

matter where they are located, helping us to build and foster virtual teams and collaborative working

practices to drive business success." 

    Verizon Business is consolidating TANDBERG's global network infrastructure to a single IP

circuit, supporting high-bandwidth visual communication, as well as high-capacity data exchange as

part of the company's ongoing software development and innovation programs. Verizon Business is

providing full management services, as well as stringent service-level agreements to support the

efficient delivery of mission-critical data. 

    Blair Crump, Verizon Business group president of worldwide sales, said: "TANDBERG's global

success is built on enabling innovation in collaboration, and the company exemplifies how Internet

protocol-based visual communications can become integral to daily business success. Verizon

Private IP offers a secure, reliable and high-speed foundation to support our multinational

customers' evolving IP-based communications needs; but just as importantly, we have the global

reach and capabilities to deliver high-quality support wherever and whenever our global customers

need it."
