Centralized IP VPN network for over 1000 Tesco stores in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia.

It was important for Tesco to choose trustworthy partner with Central and Eastern European presence able to provide regional approach. As we do operate the network from single location, having provider with same service quality in each country is one of the key benefits. On top of that, we value single account team for all the countries we do operate making sure, that any service requirement is delivered with the same specification and quality.

Martin Berdych, CEE IT Infrastructure & Operations Manager


Tesco has been expanding rapidly in the Central Eastern Europe (CEE) region, adding a continually growing number of stores, branches and warehouses. The retailer needed a seamless, cross-border corporate network with reliable VPN (virtual private network) solutions that can handle the business-critical data applications, such as payment transactions, supply chain and employee information systems.


We implemented a unified, guaranteed IP VPN service for its retail chain stores throughout the CEE region. The network includes in total 900 Tesco outlets in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia.

The IP VPN service enables Tesco to easily and efficiently connect all company stores with a single, private network. In addition to a regional IP VPN network, we provide Tesco with data center collocation, dedicated Internet access, voice and SMS services.


  • Centralized and proactive network surveillance and maintenance within CEE
  • Lower direct costs through volume purchasing and lower indirect costs as one network is less expensive to operate.
  • Primary and back-up service at every Tesco store
  • Multilingual support across the CEE region
  • Ability to expand IP VPN (MPLS) services throughout Europe through DT networks or partner networks.
  • Guaranteed QoS (Quality of Service) and SLA (Service Level Agreement).
