JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE provider of testing, inspection, certification (TIC) and training solutions, SafetySA, has chosen CMC Networks to upgrade its network and thereby improve service delivery to its customer base.
CMC is a global Tier 1 service provider.
The migration from multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) to a software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) enables improved speed and security of SafetySA’s connectivity between its sites.
“For enterprises across Africa and beyond, network performance and efficiency are crucial for success,” said Marisa Trisolino, Chief Executive Officer at CMC Networks.
The executive noted businesses cannot afford to have rigid, legacy network infrastructure hindering their growth.
By working with SafetySA, CMC is helping to enable fast, secure and seamless safety service delivery to enterprises across a wide spectrum of industries in South Africa.
“We took our local market knowledge, experience and solutions, and packaged it all up into a comprehensive solution to meet SafetySA’s network requirements both now and into the future,” Trisolino said.
SafetySA specialises in providing TIC and training solutions with a particular focus on food safety and workplace safety across a wide range of industry verticals, including mining, oil and gas, transport and logistics, agriculture, financial services, government, pharmaceutical, hospitality, construction and retail.
Pieter Erasmus, CEO at SafetySA, said workplace safety and food safety is incredibly important to customers located across South Africa and beyond.
“To best support our customers in this regard, it is critical we have the tools, processes and expertise to deliver our solutions seamlessly,” he said.
Erasmus said their existing network was unable to provide the flexibility or scalability they needed.
“CMC Networks has delivered a solution that can move with the speed of our business, with a team of network experts there to support us every step of the way,” he said.
