Apollo Tyres has offices in 150+ locations across India and all the
applications are are centralized to run from the corporate office in Gurgaon.
For this purpose Apollo has WAN connectivity from Gurgaon to all its locations.
Eariler Apollo Tyres was using FR VPN Network Services from HCL wherein the last
mile was provided by one of the country’s major service provider s for the last
4 years but the company was having a hard time with service providers in last
mile issues. This was resulting a huge amount of downtime for the business for
these 150+ locations. So Apollo decided to migrate to another service provider
who could provide higher uptime and better performance.

Apollo tyres finally decided to migrate to Reliance communications and
migrated 80% of its network. The company achieved enormous benefits after
migration. The foremost benefit is the commercials wherein the organization
could save about 1 crore a year. Since the locations were provided with higher
bandwidth it resulted in higher satisfaction from the end customers. The
challenge faced during implementation were convincing customers at all locations
about the teething problems they might face. Given the company’s expansion
plans, this network might be extended to global locations.
