Interoute wins CIMPA deal

Interoute is deploying an MPLS VPN with integrated internet access and VoIP for Airbus subsidiary CIMPA.

The move is said to provide the Product Lifecycle Management services (PLM) consultant with communications for its 940 employees in Europe, connecting French sites in Toulouse, Paris, Marseilles and Bordeaux with sites in Germany, Spain and the UK.

As a consulting company for businesses in the aerospace, defense, automotive, transportation and energy industries, CIMPA works mainly for Airbus and its subsidiaries and previously used the same communications solution as the Airbus Group. However, in order to communicate with entities outside the Airbus group, as well as with its international market teams, CIMPA required its own VPN and selected Interoute for the project.

"The Interoute proposal was so well designed that we immediately felt their team understood the vision we had for the project. The competitive price was also taken into account. Today, we are delighted with having chosen Interoute because we are dealing with a dynamic team and we have experienced no downtime,” said Nicolas Bergé, CIO of CIMPA.
