Equant expands two-year partnership with footwear marketer Stride Rite

Jun '05
Global communications service provider Equant has expanded its two-year relationship with The Stride Rite Corporation, a designer and marketer of leading brands of high-quality footwear for children and adults.

To further increase efficiencies, Stride Rite decided to outsource to Equant key IT functions, including network security, email filtering and wide area network management services. Stride Rite is also running voice, video and data over the Equant MPLS-based IP VPN in order to enhance collaboration between its facilities in North America and China.

Equant has expanded its two-year relationship with The Stride Rite Corporation. To further increase efficiencies, Stride Rite decided to outsource to Equant key IT functions, including network security, email filtering and wide area network management services. Stride Rite is also running voice, video and data over the Equant MPLS-based IP VPN in order to enhance collaboration between its facilities in North America and China.

Stride Rite is securing its network using the Equant Secure Gateway, a managed firewall service, and Equant Messaging Protection Suite (EMPS), a comprehensive perimeter-based messaging protection system that includes virus protection, content filtering, disaster recovery and spam filtering. Since December 2004, Stride Rite has cut unsolicited e-mail by 70 percent using EMPS and has boosted messaging reliability, while reducing network load.

The Equant ApplicationPerformance Assessment tool, combined with guidance by Equant solutions consultants, helps Stride Rite manage its network and the traffic that traverses it, eliminating bottlenecks by supervising the amount of bandwidth being used by different applications at any given time. As a result, Stride Rite now has greater visibility and control of their IP VPN. For example, if mission-critical applications require additional capacity, Stride Rite can divert bandwidth to these systems to ensure optimal performance.
