China Telecom Global(CTG) has commercially launched its SD-WAN service portfolio globally with initial 10 Point of Presence(PoPs) across the globe.

To date, nodes have been set up in Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Paris, Frankfurt, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Mumbai.

It plans to grow to over 30 global PoPs by the end of 2017 across Asia Pacific, Europe and North America. CTG said it will also extend the service coverage to major cities in China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen by leveraging China Telecom's domestic resources.

Powered by Versa Networks' carrier-grade NFV software, CTG said the SD-WAN service is unique in that it enables direct and secure access to public cloud services such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon via backbone networks. The service will also be accessible via mobile devices.

In addition, the service also offers an on-the-go network diagnostics solution to its customers who are now able to easily check the quality of its connectivity.

As part of China Telecom, CTG leverages on the Group's strengths in cable and wireless assets, delivering unparalleled connectivity to its customers with the flexibility of establishing a hybrid network with MPLS VPN. 

Joe Han, EVP, China Telecom Global
CTG's industry experience, along with the strengths of China Telecom, enables a fast, seamless, secure and on-the-go experience for our customers. SD-WAN is the future for businesses -- especially SMEs -- seeking greater access, capacity, speed and control.

Kelly Ahuja, CEO of Versa Networks 
CTG is a pioneer in their vision for enterprise network services and we are delighted to be selected as their partner moving forward.
