Office Depot selects Global Crossing for network that supports data, voice services
Florham Park, N.J. Global Crossing, global provider of office products and services, announced that it is providing Office Depot with a strategic multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) network that supports data and voice services to more than 100 Office Depot warehouse distribution centers and large customer sites in the United States, Europe, China and Israel.
The three-year, multi-million dollar contract supplies Office Depot with a strategic alternative network, in addition to their existing service provider, that provides them the benefits of Global Crossing's Internet Protocol MPLS infrastructure to streamline communications among key Office Depot locations around the world.
Global Crossing also deployed a flexible usage-based billing model for Office Depot that helps the customer manage the network throughput more efficiently and cost effectively.
"Global Crossing's out-of-the-box thinking and approach to our needs convinced us that they were the right choice for Office Depot," said Bert Bertagna, senior director of global IT for Office Depot. "We appreciate the flexibility they showed and are now benefiting from the cost savings and reliability the Global Crossing MPLS network provides us."
