Shinsegae I&C taps Nokia to improve its network connection in South Korea


South Korean retail tech company Shinsegae I&C will modernise its existing MPLS-Virtual Private Network transport network with Finnish telecommunications vendor Nokia’s IP/MPLS solution to improve reliability, operational efficiency, and enhanced network security.

Nokia says as part of the deal, it has upgraded Shinsegae I&C’s network to offer improved services to customers from November 2021 onwards.

Shinsegae I&C will upgrade the existing leased line infrastructure to a new IP-MPLS network connecting 150 store branches across the country to its data centre in Kimpo. Nokia’s solution will help Shinsegae I&C provide reliability and more bandwidth to its users.

"The modernisation of the existing MPLS-VPN network reinforces our commitment to provide a best-in-class experience to our users,” comments Shinsegae I&C vice president of sales division Jay Jung  on the partnership.

“Nokia’s IP/MPLS technology will simplify our customer’s network operations. With the enhanced VPN, Shinsegae I&C’s users will also be able to experience improved branch connectivity with robust network security,” says Nokia head of enterprise for Korea Josh Lee.

Nokia bagged the contract after its solution demonstrated performance, lower power consumption and optimal network stability and flexibility during the testing phase.

The solution covers Nokia 7220 Interconnect Router for data centre fabrics, which will be coupled with the Nuage Network solution. It will be deployed for Shinsegae I&C’s backup SD-WAN network over the internet to ensure improved redundancy, scale, and operational simplicity.

The network will be able to carry voice and video traffic as well as ensure increased network performance for its retail operations.
