Telarus HQ Turns to Granite for Managed SD-WAN

According to MarketsandMarkets, the SD-WAN market will reach a valuation of $1.9 billion by the end 2020, and exceed $8 billion by 2025. That’s a CAGR of nearly 35%. Some studies may not take quite as aggressive a view, like Valuates Reports, citing an overall market value of $4.137 billion by the end of 2026. Where all analysts can certainly agree is the hypothesis of growth ahead, and a key market segment driving this momentum is managed SD-WAN services.

Granite Telecommunications announced Telarus (News - Alert), the largest privately-held master agent and technology distributor in the United States chose Granite as its managed SD-WAN provider.

Specifically speaking, the three-year agreement involves Granite providing managed VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud to Telarus corporate headquarters in Sandy, Utah. The VeloCloud platform will offer enhanced voice and video QoS, improved application performance as well as delivery to cloud computing and application providers, subsecond failover and forward error correction. The deployment serves as a real-world reference guide to support Telarus sales partners.

Each customer deployment offers particular security, price and performance requirements, and this is where the Granite “Built-to-Order” SD-WAN solution shines. From those demands, Granite will select the appropriate solution, ensure it is monitored and managed end-to-end and back results with Granite’s 24/7/365 U.S.-based network operations center.

"Granite has worked side by side with the Telarus for many years to deliver advanced communications services to businesses through the Telarus sales agent network," said Dave Hanron, Senior National Channel Manager at Granite. "As a top master agency, the Telarus team has vetted numerous SD-WAN providers, so we're especially pleased to have earned the confidence of their engineering and IT teams and to be chosen as their own SD-WAN supplier."
