AT&T Delivers Pan-European Network Transformation for Nippon Gases

SD-WAN will support customer’s continuing drive for innovation in the industrial and medical gases sector

What’s the story? AT&T* is deploying a software-driven network across Europe for Nippon Gases, to support the company’s ongoing mission to ‘make life better through gas technology’. The SD-WAN deployment covers sites across 13 countries.

Why is this important?

Nippon Gases+, headquartered in Madrid, Spain, produces a range of industrial and medical gases for its customers across Europe. The company chose AT&T to deliver, deploy and manage its upgraded network, with four key aims in mind: creating a modern and resilient network architecture to support future business growth, increasing employee productivity, boosting innovation, and ultimately delivering a more cost-effective operating environment.

Nippon Gases is committed to innovation to improve its services in every industry it supports, and digitalization is a core element. AT&T worked closely with the customers team throughout the process, delivering workshops with third-party vendors and piloting the technology at selected sites to optimize the solution.

“A modern, software-based network is an unseen, but business critical element of an enterprise. Customers with operations across multiple countries understand there are complexities attached to connecting their operational sites in a highly-reliable and highly-secure manner. Our expertise and position as a trusted advisor in this space is being recognised time and again. We look forward to continuing to work with Nippon Gases, and helping them to better serve their customers across Europe.”

“From day one, AT&T demonstrated that they understood our business and what we needed to transform our network. We operate in an industry where safety is the number one priority. Ensuring the transition went smoothly and did not impact our day-to-day operations was paramount for us, and while there were challenges along the way the AT&T team found solutions and worked with us to successfully deliver the project.”
