T-Systems has signed a partnership agreement with Akamai to boost its IP-VPN service for multinational companies.

DT's enterprise arm will use Akamai’s Cloud Networking Internet Optimisation capabilities to bolster the performance of its IP-VPN offering.

Specifically, the operator said that when the IP-VPN identified the best performing routes, data is dynamically diverted in real time.

This made the delivery of enterprise critical applications “faster and more stable”, T-Systems claimed.

The new service will become commercially available early next year.

T-Systems said the service was targeted at corporates with a large number of globally-distributed branch offices and subsidiaries that did not have access to connections via “high-performance” digital networks for voice and data, that wanted to use an internet infrastructure.

The company saw sales increase 2.3 percent in the third quarter, partly due to growth in cloud services.

Patrick Molck-Ude, who is responsible for network business for Deutsche Telekom's corporate customers, said: "We want to continue growing with corporate customers, and coming from our position as number one in Germany, we want to advance our position in the European market and internationally with our new portfolio.

“Selecting Akamai technology for optimised enterprise networking over the internet is part of this strategy."

Willie Tejada, SVP and General Manager of Cloud Networking at Akamai, said: “As an increasing number of enterprises look to leverage the internet as a mission critical application delivery channel, the performance and reliability challenges become more apparent.

“This is especially true when branch office employees across the world are accessing applications over the internet.”
