Carlyle sought to consolidate internet access globally to reduce public entry points into its network; improve security posture; consolidate ISP services; and have a single invoice in US Dollars for its many international locations. Expereo was selected for its global presence allowing it to service all of the 10 Carlyle selected locations for internet access. Expereo proved to be a partner who can deliver a single global solution offering full network management performance and assurance.
Carlyle leveraged the industry expertise and the global supplier base of Expereo to design a robust, diverse and highly available set of internet edges into its MPLS network. The solution allows Carlyle to decouple its internet services from its MPLS provider while ensuring customized and in-house secured internet edges.
Further, having Expereo as a single global ISP affords Carlyle a single point of contact, monitoring and invoicing for all of its internet circuits.
As a result of switching the management of its global internet, Carlyle was able to reduce operational complexity and total costs by partnering with Expereo. The solution also enabled Carlyle to select different traffic speeds for critical and non-critical locations, while being ensured of a highly available, robust and secure managed network.
