Sprint has launched its Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) services. Sprint teamed with VeloCloud, a leader in Cloud-delivered SD-WAN solutions, and began customer trials in 4Q, 2016.

SD-WAN is an approach to designing and deploying an enterprise WAN with software-driven centralized management that reduces complexity, maximizes network resources, and enables fast responses to changing business priorities. Rampant innovation, the Cloud, IoT and the diversity of network technologies, devices and carriers combined with an ever-growing mobile workforce are increasing network use and complexity. 

Sprint manages the customer’s SD-WAN solution across transport vendors, providing an integrated and seamless end-to-end experience.   Flexible management tiers enable customers to select the level of support they need, including a Sprint fully managed solution. 

Sprint said its SD-WAN integrates easily with the Sprint suite of converged services, including SIP Trunking, SIP Cloud Toll Free, Workplace-as-a-Service, Wi-Fi and UCaaS solutions. 

The Sprint SD-WAN “As-a-Service” model also makes it easier for enterprises to scale and adjust to business changes while providing simple, clear pricing that streamlines planning and cost control. Sprint SD-WAN services complement Sprint’s comprehensive suite of services that include Global MPLS, Dedicated Internet Access, Managed VoIP, Global SIP Trunking, UCaaS, Cloud Exchange, Managed Network and Security Solutions, and the award-winning Workplace-as-a-Service. 

Mike Fitz, VP of Sprint Global Wireline Business Unit
The rapid change in technology is driving companies to consider SD-WAN as the answer to simplifying network challenges. The Sprint SD-WAN dashboard provides our customers with real-time, detailed visibility into the performance of their entire WAN and all of their applications, while single-click deployment minimizes the set-up time for branch offices and temporary sites.

Sanjay Uppal, Co-Founder & CEO, VeloCloud 
Sprint’s managed services expertise and commitment to exceptional care, combined with our industry-leading SD-WAN platform, provides automation, network agility, increased visibility, end to end security and improved performance for real-time and cloud applications across distributed locations.
