Software defined networking solutions are setting the course for a high-performing, flexible and cloud-based future, with SD-WAN leading the way. As such, SD-WAN providers are pursuing opportunities to drive revenue through empowering partners.

EdgeWater Networks announced Trade Up to SD-WAN, a program offering partners the possibility of upgrading older EdgeMarc Intelligent Edges to a device capable of supporting SD-WAN. The program allows partners to augment functionality, while still maintaining security and service assurance.

“With Trade Up to SD-WAN, we can quickly turn up a highly differentiated SD-WAN service at our existing ManagEdge Service customers,” noted Chris Ready, VP Professional Services at Everest Communications Group, a New York City-based provider of IP Voice Services and Cloud2Edge Universal Partner. “Our customers get a top-notch SD-WAN Service and Everest adds a new revenue stream – it’s a win-win.”

EdgeWater partners gain access to the Cloud2Edge Complete solution, which provides high margin SD-WAN revenue, trade-in discounts, zero touch provisioning, instant access to the EdgeView Service Control Center.

“Trade Up to SD-WAN is the right program at the right time,” stated Mike Evanisko, Chief Technology Officer at 888VoIP and CloudCo, New York-based hardware/cloud services distributors and Cloud2Edge Universal Partners. “Interest in SD-WAN among our customers is extremely high. Trade Up to SD-WAN enables us to quickly upgrade an existing, loyal Edgewater Networks’ (News - Alert) customer and deliver SD-WAN services to them.”

From SMB to multinational enterprise, SD-WAN is turning heads as a path to the cloud, supporting our SaaSy reality and a key component of this phase of digital transformation. Mounting SD-WAN deployments speak volumes, and are priming projections.
