To say political relations between the United States and China are interesting, would be quite an understatement. As innovation continues to turn conventional technology on its head with a flexible, high performing, software-defined revolution taking place, an American SD-WAN vendor is delivering fully compliant SD-WAN to Chinese enterprises.

Aryaka announced an agreement with China Mobile (News - Alert) International (CMI) that provides organizations with an international presence in China to a fully compliant SD-WAN solution in addition to CMI’s compliment of connectivity services. 

“This is a powerful partnership because Aryaka (News - Alert) and CMI complement each other in ways that immediately benefit global enterprises,” noted Shawn Farshchi, President and CEO of Aryaka. “Aligning our resources will increase enterprise agility by simplifying the job of deploying and managing SD-WANs that meet the singular compliance requirements in China. Together, Aryaka and CMI will provide the only solution that can deliver significantly better performance for both on-premises and SaaS (News - Alert)/cloud applications anywhere in the world.”

During his SD-WAN Expo keynote address, Aryaka’s Mouli Radhakrishnan (News - Alert) discussed the proposition of global SD-WAN deployments, parsing the different flavors of SD-WAN along the way. One of the key takeaways from the keynote, and the show at large was, this burgeoning technology is ready for the spotlight.

“Aryaka’s global SD-WAN, combined with our vast infrastructure in China and around the world, will enable CMI to answer the demand for an SD-WAN that can meet the SLA requirements of enterprise applications,” noted Daniel Chen, President at CMI USA. “Teaming with Aryaka is a win-win for global customers that are doing business in China and Chinese enterprises with a global presence.”

In a market poised for explosive growth, SD-WAN vendors are positioning for the big push. Adoption is on the rise, and the sky – ahem, excuse me, the cloud – is the limit.
