The roadmap to cloud migration these days leads through SD-WAN. This future forward technology is taking the main stage today, as factors like application performance, security, flexibility and TCO are fueling a meteoric rise.

FatPipe announced a partnership with RingCentral (News - Alert) to provide customers with exceptional communication and collaboration capability leveraging SD-WAN to support VoIP and UCaaS deployments.

"FatPipe's strong showing in MOS tests is a result of its robust patented technology that is unparalleled, especially for VoIP and UCaaS," said Dr. Ragula Bhaskar, CEO FatPipe Networks. "FatPipe's over-the-top data transmission technology results in the lowest possible latency, combined with its automatic failover of VoIP and UCaaS calls to available lines without dropping packets, makes for superior customer experiences." 

Pairing with FatPipe makes all the sense in the world for RingCentral, as the SD-Wan platform performance exceeded that of other vendors explored, delivering an optimal experience for end users. The FatPipe SD-WAN alleviates the need for duplicate packets or a dedicated express route line, allowing for newly freed bandwidth to support other applications and reduced cost. RingCentral customers can license the FatPipe SD-WAN in AWS and run the platform with RingCentral’s hosted solution.

"SD-WAN is a leading technology being deployed across enterprises to assure the highest-levels of quality of service and availability," said Curtis Peterson, senior vice president, cloud operations, RingCentral. "FatPipe's technology enables enterprises to assist in managing jitter and latency to ensure that customers get the best communications experience."

UCaaS is picking up steam, and playing a key role in this evolution is the use of SD-WAN to support cloud communications deployments.
