"Partnering with Juniper Networks, VolkerWessels Telecom can benefit from a clear and consistent go-to-market approach, adding value across Juniper’s experience-first solutions," said Gos Hein van de Wouw, VP Enterprise EMEA at Juniper Networks. "They have deployed Juniper Networks' products and services in their day-to-day operations in a short period of time and have also made great progress in implementing software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) within the VolkerWessels group."
Partnership contributes to quality customer experience
VolkerWessels Telecom has a long history in the design, construction, maintenance and management of network infrastructure. Investments in the latest technologies to offer customers optimal experience-led service are a common thread throughout. "Partnering with Juniper Networks is a logical step in our commitment to innovation and continuous improvement of our services," said Arjen Bakker, director of Connectivity Services & Solutions (CSS) at VolkerWessels Telecom. “As many analysts conclude, Juniper’s portfolio can significantly improve the customer experience related to the network and simplify network management, which aligns with our objectives. Juniper was named a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure for the third year in a row, which reinforces the value Juniper products deliver for its partners and customers.”
One of those objectives of VolkerWessels Telecom was to extend its managed network service from the initial SD-LAN offering, now built on the Juniper Wired Access and Wireless Access solution, with AI-driven routing and SD-WAN. This enables them to deliver smarter, more flexible WAN services and client-to-cloud connectivity to their customers. “We have built total connectivity services for both our customers and our own use,” says René Lutjenkossink, ICT architect at VolkerWessels Telecom. "Now that we can deliver optimized network experiences with insight, automation and cloud adoption, our customers can focus on more strategic matters. This is something VolkerWessels Telecom is proud of. We also appreciate the recognition and support from Juniper Networks in this regard.”
Cooperation in knowledge exchange
The partnership between Juniper Networks and VolkerWessels Telecom goes further than just the implementation of solutions. There is also a strong cooperation in the field of knowledge exchange in the form beta-testing of feature / future releases. This enables VolkerWessels Telecom to serve its customers even better and help them achieve their digital transformation goals.
“We congratulate VolkerWessels for its ongoing commitment and technical leadership in driving innovative solutions. The Elite Partner status recognises the significant progress made by VolkerWessels Telecom over the recent years and Juniper’s relationship with the company continues to deliver innovative networking solutions for customers,” concludes Gos Hein van de Wouw.
