Posted on 20-Jun-2012 09:41 | Filed under: News

Delegat�s Group Limited, New Zealand�s largest publicly traded wine maker has signed AT&T to provide a complete communications infrastructure solitions.

Known for its Oyster Bay wine brand, the company�s data networks, both in New Zealand and overseas, were managed by several different companies. The result was higher latency, along with complications in managing different network infrastructure and specifications.

Delegat�s wanted a single provider that could provide a complete communications infrastructure solution to support its sustainable growth on a global scale.

AT&T is delivering a seamless and reliable network that connects Delegat�s 12 operating locations in New Zealand via Wide Area Network (WAN) services, and eight overseas sales offices with Virtual Private Network (VPN) services, supported by co-location and Internet at all sites.

"Delegat�s is a New Zealand success story and they seek continuous performance right across their business. Following a recent WAN review project, they identified an opportunity to improve WAN performance and drive efficiencies by consolidating to a single provider. We are proud to be their global communications provider,� said Fred Girouard, AT&T Australia and New Zealand managing director.

Using one global communications provider can also drive efficiencies and productivity by standardizing the specifications of Delegat�s network infrastructure, and facilitating easier routing across the network.

The enhanced network performance means improved response times and productivity for Delegat�s employees, especially those in remote locations both inside and outside Asia Pacific, taking advantage of AT&T�s Internet VPN services. �Great Wine People� at Delegat�s around the world can now work more closely and more efficiently together to establish Oyster Bay as one of the world�s great super-premium wine brands, and deliver it to more dinner tables around the world.

�Delegat�s has a strong performance culture in every facet of our business, and that includes communications. Our global network is a key enabler for communications amongst our global team, and with our customers and partners. AT&T provides unmatched strengths in its network communications, to meet our growth ambitions internationally,� said Wilson Alley, chief information officer, Delegat�s.
