Bel Fuse is a U.S. company which designs, manufactures and markets a broad array of products that power, protect and connect electronic circuits. In order to cut costs and increase their flexibility, Bel Fuse decided to migrate their on-premise Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP) to Microsoft Dynamics 365.
During their 2-month User Acceptance Test (UAT), they experienced high latency and frequent disconnections when trying to access their ERP system through the public Internet. This was obviously unsatisfactory and presented a high potential risk of sensitive data leakage.
As time was pressing, they needed to find a partner who could deliver a fast, reliable and secure connection to the Cloud Service Provider (CSP) where their ERP system is hosted. HKT was able to meet their requirements, with an option that allowed them scale up their bandwidth as they planned to extend their ERP system in the future.
HKT’s SkyExchange Multi-Cloud FAST Connect provides Bel Fuse with a secure, fast and private connection to U.S. hosted Microsoft Dynamics 365 which bypasses the public Internet and is fully backed by a Service Level Agreement.
Leveraging Megaport’s global Software Defined Network (SDN), the solution also provides redundant paths to ensure always-on access and allows Bel Fuse to scale their existing connections up or down and add new connections when required. During the implementation stage, HKT’s professional onboarding services helped Bel Fuse with their cloud network design, their interconnect set-up, and network troubleshooting to ensure the connectivity was fully ready for use.
With SkyExchange Multi-Cloud FAST Connect, Bel Fuse has been able to drastically reduce their Round Trip Time (RTT), and improve their performance, security and reliability.
Philip Wong, IT Manager (Asia) from Bel Fuse said, “Fast and secure connectivity is essential to support our cloud-hosted mission-critical business system, especially as our users are scattered across multiple locations. HKT helps us to unlock the full value of a cloud-based ERP system by connecting seamlessly and securely to our choice of Cloud Service Provider. Our ERP system is now more accessible to our staff even in remote sites thus boosting our productivity as a whole”.
