Citrix SD-WAN: Helping connect Ireland’s woodland

Coillte Forest is an Irish state-owned agency responsible for the sustainability and management of Woodland in Ireland extending over 440,000 hectares, about 7% of Ireland’s total land space. Coillte is responsible for managing the renewable resources of forestry, industrial development, infrastructure and tourism for the land under management.

To support this effort, Coillte operates 35 sites comprising of offices, nurseries and sawmill weighbridges across Ireland, often in very remote locations.

Technology plays a key role in managing forestry operations. To support its services, Coillte needs excellent communications and connectivity. This posed an issue in recent years as the dependency on technology has increased.
