Places for People partnership facilitates connectivity strategy and transformation
Vodafone helps Places for People manage their cloud network
Places for People needed an experienced business network provider to help deliver their connectivity vision and strategy. Since moving to SD-WAN can be complex, Places for People chose Vodafone’s end-to-end solution and expertise to aggregate and modernise their wide-area-network.
As part of their digital cloud strategy to provide the best experience for customers and colleagues, Places for People wanted to upgrade their network to enable them to respond faster to changes in their ways of working and move their wide-area-network to a cloud-based solution.
In partnership with Cisco Meraki, Vodafone are providing an end-to-end SD-WAN solution, including connectivity and resilience options up to 1GB, alongside a simple and secure SD-WAN network across Places for People's 190 sites.
Vodafone’s dedicated team of Cisco Meraki professional service engineers are working with Places for People to design and plan a seamless transition to SD-WAN, minimising network downtime. With Vodafone’s local presence, global scale and extensive service delivery experience, Places for People is confident their network transformation is in safe hands.
“By moving our network to the cloud, we’ve been able to implement new ways of working, helping us provide an efficient, agile and responsive service that caters to the needs of colleagues and customers, and keeps us all connected.”
