PCCW Global, the international operating division of HKT, has launched a new global managed SD-WAN service to enterprises across 80 countries which complements existing fiber-based IP-MPLS services.

As enterprises seek to extract the most value from exciting new technologies such as cloud computing, data analytics and the Internet of Things, heavy demands on branch networks often lead to increasing complexity along with cost and resource-intensive WAN management.

PCCW Global’s new SD-WAN service addresses these challenges head-on by simplifying multi-site WAN deployment and management. The service optimizes traffic in real time by constantly adapting to meet changing business needs while simultaneously balancing performance and cost. Traffic is intelligently routed over a preferred network path from a combination of IP-MPLS, broadband and 4G LTE connections in order to meet pre-defined network and performance policies.

The service is transport agnostic, so enterprises are able to make use of an existing PCCW Global MPLS network, or even connectivity provided by another service provider. SD-WAN is easy for enterprises to deploy and integrate with their current network, resulting in minimal disruptions for end users while providing an integrated and seamless end-to-end user experience.

Over 80 countries across the US, Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and Oceania will be covered during the initial launch phase of the service, which will continue to be expanded through both PCCW Global’s existing network as well as third party providers’ networks. PCCW Global’s MPLS network itself spans over 3,000 cities in 150 countries, with direct extensions available to all major cloud providers.
