The Travel Corporation, which owns tour operators Trafalgar Tours, Contiki Holidays and Insight Vacations, has deployed a global Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IP VPN).
The network spans multiple continents and supports The Travel Corp's subsidiaries in Toronto, London, Anaheim, Sydney, Geneva and other cities worldwide.
The deployment was undertaken by AT&T but financial terms of the multi-year contract were not disclosed.
The VPN provides a standard global platform supporting the company's networking infrastructure, including its travel reservation and operation system, videoconferencing, e-mail, and back-office applications. It links the company's international offices directly to each other and to the data centre hub on a faster, more secure network.
The network also sets the stage for advanced technologies such as Voice over IP (VoIP), enabling the company to grow and adapt to changing business demands.
The Travel Corp's group CIO Amir Nadel said AT&T was selected because of its global presence.
