AireSpring just added a master agency to its list of partners.

Avant Communications and its agents will sell the carrier’s solution portfolio. That includes unified communications and managed network and IT services.

Avant president Drew Lydecker said partners face a customer landscape of “accelerated demand and rapid digital transformation.”

“We are pleased to deepen the portfolio of solutions available to our network of trusted advisors through this partnership with AireSpring,” Lydecker said. “… Through AireSpring’s breadth of innovative services we look forward to helping enterprises navigate the decision-making process to further their success now and into the future.”

SD-WAN Portfolio

AireSpring uses VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud for its SD-WAN architecture. AireSpring noted in May that the number of customers seeking its SD-WAN service increased by more than 100% last year.
