RWE selects Verizon managed service to transform energy exchange


RWE IT, a IT supplier within RWE, has joined with Verizon
to provide an international network organisation for its customers across the
RWE Group.


Under a new five year agreement, Verizon
will work with RWE IT GmbH to provide a fully managed, end-to-end global
communications service, including managed wide area network, local area
network, Internet, voice and security solutions.


The agreement will initially cover RWE Supply and Trading
GmbH, RWE’s energy trading house, and the RWE Group’s commodities trading hub.
The Verizon solution will provide the company with the infrastructure it needs,
with stringent service-level agreements supporting network performance and
secure connectivity between its global trading floors.


RWE IT’s mission is to support the RWE Group’s strategic
priorities of becoming more sustainable, more international and more robust.
Our aspiration is to deliver excellence in technology and business process, and
we therefore wanted to identify a partner with not only the geographical reach,
technical capabilities, experience and expertise to help support our business
growth, but also who shared our commitment to innovation in service delivery,”
said Michael Neff, CEO, RWE IT.


“Verizon has long been a proponent of the power of
technology to change business models and deliver business results”, said
Martin Burvill, EMEA group vice president, Verizon.


“This new relationship is a great match at every
level, but is primarily about delivering a common technology platform to
support the global business vision of the RWE Group. RWE recognises
the strengths the Verizon team can bring to their business,” Burvill added.


Verizon recently announced
that it is adding Mobile Satellite Solutions to its Private IP service suite,
combining a highly reliable connection with portable satellite technology to
provide services where traditional terrestrial services are unavailable,
unreliable or expensive.


By leveraging Verizon’s multiprotocol label switching
(MPLS) global private IP network, these satellite services provide Private IP
customers with access to their private networks from virtually any place within
the satellite coverage area.
