MetTel, a leading communications solutions provider for enterprises, and VeloCloud Networks™, the Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN™ company, today announced a strategic partnership that adds VeloCloud SD-WAN capabilities to MetTel’s managed communications offerings. VeloCloud enables assured enterprise-grade performance, security and reliability as part of the MetTel managed SD-WAN and bonded Internet solution.
VeloCloud’s Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN assures enterprise and cloud application performance over the Internet and Hybrid WAN while simplifying deployments and reducing costs.
The joint cloud offering is unique within the SD-WAN market, thanks in part to MetTel’s supplementary security features. By integrating VeloCloud gateways seamlessly with the communications company’s private MPLS network, the enhanced Hybrid WAN solution is made particularly competitive for MetTel customers.
“MetTel is a leader in enterprise communications solutions with a tremendously positive impact on customer efficiency, productivity and cost-savings,” said Sanjay Uppal, CEO and co-founder of VeloCloud. “MetTel’s choice to deploy VeloCloud SD-WAN reflects their commitment to the highest quality and simplicity of deployment and management for their enterprise customers.”
By leveraging VeloCloud technologies such as Dynamic Multi-Path Optimization, both companies can deliver high performance for enterprise and cloud applications, network impairment remediation, and sub-second brownout and blackout protection for real time applications. This provides enterprises with better performance, faster deployments and more cost-effective bandwidth. The flexible solution enables MetTel and its agents to expand their reach to a broader customer base.
The multi-tenant VeloCloud Orchestrator with roles-based access additionally enables MetTel’s partners and customers to enjoy policy-based automation and virtualized services provisioning. This increases operational efficiencies and enables rapid deployment. VeloCloud’s policy-based network services insertion provides access to an expanding ecosystem of additional cloud-based services, including web security. These solution enhancements scale for enterprises with hundreds to tens of thousands of branch offices.
“MetTel consistently strives to provide our customers with more flexible, secure, simplifying and cost saving solutions, and we believe that VeloCloud’s offering is highly compatible with our mission,” said Marshall Aronow, CEO at MetTel. “The simplicity of their SD-WAN plug-and-play solution is matched with a greater level of cloud control for the customer, while low-cost bandwidth capacity and guaranteed quality of service are strategically critical for scaling businesses. With our integrated and layered approach, MetTel will continue to deliver high standards for network security.”
