Braskem selects CenturyLink SD-WAN for Global Operations

Braskem has selected CenturyLink to deliver a global SD-WAN network solution to more than 50 of its locations across Latin America, North America, Europe and Asia.

This SD-WAN network will go through more than 130 balanced MPLS and dedicated internet links with a connection to the private cloud through CenturyLink Cloud Connect Solutions. This provides Braskem an efficient, secure way to access applications and transport business data.

CenturyLink will provide Braskem with a software-defined wide area network that can quickly deploy branch sites, deliver cost savings with private and public networks, and provide optimized cloud connectivity and application-aware routing.

To support this complex structure, Braskem will also use CenturyLink Network Management Service. This will help provide continuous and attentive network monitoring with proactive and preventive actions, as well as data extraction and consolidation for analysis, reporting and improvement recommendations.

CenturyLink SD-WAN provides Braskem with the ability to create safe, private networks over a mix of public and private infrastructure, with site-to-site encryption regardless of access or transport technology used. The solution also provides centralized management and control to steer traffic on an application-by-application basis or by access type, enabling the connection of disparate sites across a variety of backbone connections.

The CenturyLink SD-WAN solution with hybrid connectivity has the flexibility to meet Braskem’s needs, react at a moment’s notice and evolve to support their digital business growth.
