The Agfa-Gevaert Group (Agfa) has signed up with Verizon Enterprise Solutions to transform its global network infrastructure.

The Agfa-Gevaert Group serves customers in over 100 countries around the globe from its Belgian headquarters. The company develops, manufactures and distributes analog and digital imaging systems and IT solutions for printing, healthcare and industrial applications.

The company has chosen Verizon’s managed network services and software-defined networking solutions as part of a global transformation that aims to build a best-in-class network to support future growth.

Verizon will take on the global management of Agfa’s network, freeing up Agfa’s own IT department to focus on innovation in service and solution delivery. In addition, by deploying Verizon’s software-defined network solutions, Agfa will be able to quickly flex and adapt its global network infrastructure to more effectively support business needs.

Caroline Van Rompuy, CIO, Agfa
This network transformation is a crucial element of our business strategy, and will deliver a flexible, scalable and agile global infrastructure fit to support our business today and into the future.

Rich Montgomery, Internaional Group VP, Verizon
This move into virtualized network services will help the company better serve its customers around the globe as its own business transforms. Agfa has reinvented its business in the digital age – now it’s reinventing its network as well.
