Recent advancements in SD-WAN are making it easier for enterprise and carrier customers to leverage agile, flexible and cost-effective networks to extend their global reach.

Just recently, Enter announced the market introduction of its Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) service over its national and international Ethernet backbone. Now, enterprise customers can leverage Enter’s hybrid WAN across more than 35 national and international Points of Presence (PoPs), ensuring global coverage and SD-WAN availability.

This SD-WAN service also streamlines network control for branch locations, and simplifies enterprise WAN management for on-premises and cloud applications. Users can now prioritize business-critical applications and monitor application performance over an easy-to-use analytics portal.

Carrier customers will benefit from Enter’s multi-operator interconnection opportunities, which will allow them to facilitate and increase interconnections. Enter offers a managed wholesale solution for partners in line with the most recent regulatory industry guidelines. Now, carriers can offer automated and fully-managed services using Enter’s SD-WAN and Ethernet network without having to undergo the traditional pains of managing installation or shipping equipment to interconnection points.

Plus, using Enter’s OpenStack-based network automation, as well as its SD-WAN functions, partners can integrate their own SD-WAN platforms with Enter’s infrastructure. This extends on-demand services into any of Enter’s on-net locations.

“SD-WAN adoption has made cost savings and simplified management a reality,” explained Milko Ilari, Head of International Business and Strategy at Enter. “Both our enterprise and carrier customers will be able to lower their operational and capital expenditures through increased network automation and optimization.”

Ilari also spoke about how much time Enter can save for customers.

“Our enterprise customers will benefit from an agile and flexible network for virtualization and dynamic bandwidth services, while our carrier customers gain end-to-end control over services to the customer premises,” said Ilari. “This agility means they can reduce the time it takes to complete service requests from weeks to one day, and help their customers turn-up sites in days instead of months.”
