TelePacific says its new managed services platform, enabled by SD-WAN, “almost immediately” pushes out the configuration data needed to fill a customer’s requirements and gets ordered services up and running within minutes.
The company also points out that, since it manages the entire end-to-end delivery, it can support multiple continuity and security levels. As a result, TelePacific has expanded its traditional five-nines performance guarantee to a 100-percent uptime promise for select services. It’s all part of a new, long-term contract with VeloCloud to enable delivery of TelePacific products and services over SD-WAN anywhere that a customer has broadband connectivity.
This is where to learn more about TelePacific’s SD-WAN endeavors.
The carrier announced at its annual Partner Exchange Summit that its partners can now sell NetBond, the telco giant’s solution that lets customers use its virtual private network to access 16 cloud providers.
And like TelePacific, AT&T has a new partnership with VeloCloud, which will allow it to launch an SD-WAN portfolio in 2017.
Audex 360 is an upgrade to the company’s Audex platform. The rollout is expected by the end of the year.
“This one’s pretty amazing,” said Brian Leonard, Intelisys’ director of marketing. “It’s like a Salesforce.com, but it focuses entirely on the channel. So first, Salesforce.com is insanely expensive, and two, you have to go through and configure it to all the carriers that we do. Audex 360 is pre-built for you. This plugs right into RPM and they can download all their information, it comes into this and it’s all there.”
