Globe Telecom has expanded the connectivity choices to include 4G LTE for its Software Defined-Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) service that previously relied only on fixed broadband.
Globe's 4G LTE can be used as primary transport or as an additional capacity for SD-WAN at minimal cost. Globe said it continues to be aggressive in expanding its LTE coverage with about 12,000 sites nationwide as of end June 2018.
SD-WAN is highly beneficial to geographically distributed organizations such as banks, logistics companies, and retailers, which run applications that rely on connectivity for real-time information without compromising security and reliability.
Now that SD-WAN can already be deployed anywhere as long as 4G LTE is available, enterprises can adapt faster to relevant scenarios or address customers’ needs anytime. Companies can also experience optimal connectivity through automated rerouting of traffic across the most efficient routes and connections.
SD-WAN complements existing Wide Area Network (WAN), Internet Protocol-Virtual Private Network (IP-VPN), and fixed broadband connections.
