The oldest pharmaceutical and chemical company worldwide, Merck has 32,000 employees working in 242 locations in 61 countries. The company, which produces innovative prescription drugs and over-the-counter products, was challenged to provide global teams with a data exchange and communication system that would improve application performance across the WAN to LAN-like speeds.
In the end, they teamed with Orange Business Services and Riverbed Technology to deploy 104 Riverbed Steelhead® appliances worldwide. The result was an immediate speed increase of 70-90 percent for most applications across the WAN. Merck also achieved greater transparency on a global level, reduced costs through consolidation, and avoided investments in unnecessary bandwidth upgrades.
Merck leverages Riverbed® and Orange to achieve up to 90 percent bandwidth optimization and visibility across the network.
