New SD-WAN Platform Makes It Easier For Companies to Adopt Virtual Networks

Viptela Offers SD-WAN Platform Option for Verizon’s Virtual Network Service

Software-defined wide area network solution (SD-WAN) provider Viptela today announced its SD-WAN platform is available through Verizon Enterprise Solutions making it easier for enterprises to transition to a virtual infrastructure model

Viptela, the Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) company, today announced that its SD-WAN platform will be a part of Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ new Virtual Network Services that will enable enterprises to transition to a virtual infrastructure model, providing greater agility and on-demand resources.

“Through joint deployments with Verizon, we can help Fortune 500 companies migrate to a managed SD-WAN model which delivers new levels of agility, quality of service and application performance,” said Amir Khan, chief executive officer, Viptela. “The Viptela platform's ability to seamlessly integrate with Verizon’s existing networks and infrastructure will enable globally distributed enterprises to cost-effectively transition their WAN into a virtual network service.”

In February, Viptela and Verizon announced that they were joining forces to deliver a new software defined networking solution using Viptela’s SD-WAN platform, and that Viptela had entered into a managed services arrangement with Verizon in the United States.

Migrating to Managed SD-WAN
With the increasing adoption of cloud and mobile services, organizations are struggling to maintain acceptable levels of application performance even in remote locations. Addressing changing business needs quickly, reliably, securely and cost effectively has become increasingly more complex and operationally difficult with traditional networks. Most traditional networks don’t allow applications to scale as quickly as required which can lead to lengthy and painful deployment cycles. Viptela’s SD-WAN offering is a part of Verizon’s Virtual Network Services portfolio enabling organizations to transform their network to create a single intelligent platform that responds to their applications’ needs and allows them to make rapid changes. This fully integrated and customizable hybrid networking solution is implemented and managed by Verizon to fit each organization’s specific business needs.
