Our Bureau Mumbai | Updated on March 12, 2018 Published on February 06, 2015

Tata Communications has won a $20-million (₹124 crore) contract from Kion Group to provide global wide area network (WAN) services to the company’s 280 sites across 30 countries.

Under the multi-year deal, Tata Communications will replace Kion Group’s existing stable of multiple WAN providers with a single intelligent network. Kion Group is the second largest global manufacturer of forklift trucks and warehouse technology, the company said in a statement.

“A single global provider would enable us to simplify our network management, but the advanced services that Tata Communications provides are going a step further in allowing us to take complete control of the traffic on our network. We can now take a truly user-focussed approach to our services,” said Walter Grûner, Chief Information Officer at Kion Group.

The WAN will run on Tata Communications’ global backbone and utilise its cloud-based security solution.
