BCM One has joined forces with Ecessa (News - Alert) Corp. on an SD-WAN partnership.

Ecessa designs, deploys, and supports WAN technology. And it has a line of SD-WAN controllers that are used in more than 10,000 installations today. BCM One is an integrator, which has partnerships with more than 50 technology suppliers.

“Based on Ecessa’s 15 years in the WAN business and their solid network engineering expertise, made them an intriguing company to partner with,” stated John Cunningham (News - Alert), Founder & Co-CEO of BCM One. “Together we offer a reliable managed SD-WAN solution for existing MPLS clients wanting to move to SD-WAN or to offer a hybrid approach to companies of all sizes.” 

Mike Siegler, CEO of Ecessa, added: “BCM One’s stellar reputation and customer-first approach made them a natural partner for us. This unique managed SD-WAN service offering will integrate the best of both organizations making SD-WAN easier for our partners and their customers to see the benefits.”

Gartner’s (News - Alert) Andrew Lerner toward the middle of last year noted that SD-WAN is now moving into the mainstream. Last summer he estimated there were more than 6,000 paying SD-WAN customers and more than 4,000 production implementations. And IDC (News - Alert) has estimated the worldwide SD-WAN revenues will exceed $6 billion in 2020.

“With the WAN connectivity problem well understood and solutions ramping in deployments, SD-WAN vendors are beginning to offer additional services such as WAN optimization and virtual firewall. The next important challenge for SD-WAN vendors to solve is providing connectivity with SLAs and security for the multi-cloud,” said Cliff Grossner, senior research director and advisor for the cloud and data center research practice at IHS (News - Alert) Markit
