TNT Centrally Manages Global IP Network with VitalQIP
A well-managed IP network, capable of handling tens of thousands of IP objects, is key to the success of a global express shipping and logistics supply chain firm. When TNT, a world-leading provider of express delivery services and logistics supply chain solutions, needed to provide central IP management of its global network, it turned to Alcatel-Lucent's VitalQIP IP management software.
It found that the Alcatel-Lucent solution gave it central management control and visibility over its network in 60+ countries, helped to support and create a global DNS architecture, delivered ongoing management cost reductions, paved the way for a Windows 2000 upgrade, and allowed TNT to build a network capable of handling new technologies including VoIP and Web-based enterprise applications.
For TNT, the world's leading provider of express delivery services and supply chain solutions, to centrally manage IP on an expanding global network which was being administered on a country-bycountry basis. TNT also wanted to gain visibility and control over IP, DNS and DHCP for its network so that it could deliver new IP-based productivity solutions, including Voice over IP (VoIP) and Webbased enterprise applications.
