Schneider Electric is a global specialist in energy management. The 176-year-old French firm got its start in the steel industry, then expanded into power and control in the last half of the twentieth century. More recently, the company broadened its scope to energy management, a move that extended its business portfolio while doubling sales and employees. Today, Schneider Electric employs more than 110,000 people in approximately 100 countries around the world.
Schneider Electric’s IT infrastructure links the company’s global operations via three multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks supplemented by smaller, local networks in various locations. These networks connect approximately 1,000 remote sites with the company’s four major data centers.
