As more enterprises migrate their applications to the cloud, they have to deal with an increasingly complex wide area network (WAN) environment that combines multiple private networks, such as Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IP VPN), and public internet services.
Understanding this, Singtel has partnered Viptela to offer the Singtel ConnectPlus Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution to simplify the management of their networks.
The solution allows enterprises to simplify and centralise their network provisioning and policy management, as well as configure network requirements in real-time. "[Enterprises will be able to] exercise dynamic control over network issues such as performance, bandwidth utilisation and security, thus helping them enhance their networks and improve business productivity," said Lee Han Kheng, Vice President (Global Products), Singtel Group Enterprise.
Amir Khan, Viptela's CEO, added that the solution will help reduce operating costs as enterprises could manage all their IP VPN, private line and Internet services anywhere in the world via only one point of control.
Currently, Singtel and Viptela are working with multiple Global 2000 enterprise customers in pilot deployments of the service.
