SD-WAN is a critical component of digital transformation, and is currently a key ingredient in the success we’re seeing with the remote workforce during the COIVD-19 quarantine. For many organizations, managed SD-WAN makes the most sense and for those providers, demand continues to surge.

GTT Communications announced expansion to its managed SD-WAN portfolio in the Americas with the addition of the Silver Peak (News - Alert) Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform.

“GTT SD-WAN is critical for enterprises looking to securely connect their people across organizations, around the world and to every application in the cloud,” stated Rick Calder (News - Alert), GTT president and CEO. “We’ve now extended the GTT SD-WAN offering in the Americas region to include a Silver Peak option, ensuring the same broad choice of technology options is available for all our clients across the globe.”

With more than 100 organizations leveraging the Silver Peak solution via GTT managed SD-WAN in Europe, the extension to the new world is a natural one. Now firms in the Americas region can take advantage of a Tier 1 IP network, as well as Silver Peak’s Unity Boost WAN optimization and Unity EdgeConnect. The combination delivers the flexibility, security and reliability demanded by the modern enterprise, and in doing cut costs and improve application performance.

Ghassan Abdo, research vice president, worldwide telecom at IDC (News - Alert). “GTT’s managed SD-WAN service allows enterprises to focus critical IT personnel on core business operational activity and provides substantial value-add in the management of complex network integrations, as well as helping conserve scarce capital resources.”
