BT tailors network for Valentino Fashion Group


BT announced today the signing of a three-year agreement to design and build a new global network for Valentino Fashion Group, one of the major players in the global fashion and luxury industry.

Under this agreement, BT Italia will design, build, implement and manage a new international IP MPLS (multiprotocol label switching) network to connect Valentino Fashion Group’s four subsidiaries in Paris, New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong, the company’s Italian headquarters, and more than 50 stores across Europe, the Americas and Asia.

Luca Vianello, Chief Executive Officer of Valentino Fashion Group, commented: “We selected BT not only for their superior technology but for their proven ability to implement and manage ongoing changes while working with us. BT’s network will represent an excellent starting point to provide our stores with value-added services, including multimedia, security, and voice transmission; all of this of course using IP technologies. ”

Corrado Sciolla, Chief Executive Officer of BT Italia, said: ”Leading Italian fashion and luxury brands increasingly require our services to support their national and global business. I am convinced that BT Italia, as a telecommunications partner dedicated to organizations with a significant international presence, can contribute to improve Valentino Fashion Group’s communications. ”

The new system will provide higher availability and more security by featuring full network redundancy to ensure dual access (access to the next switch using two separate lines) for all subsidiaries and a 10 megabit transmission rate e.g. in the case of the company’s Italian headquarters. It enables Valentino Group to optimise its production capability and improve the quality of its communications at the best costs.
