Versa Networks announced the official rollout of a joint solution to deliver Versa's best-in-class SD-WAN capabilities to BringCom's telecom managed service providers and SaaS platform operators in East and West Africa.
Following the VERSA-BringCom partnership established in October 2018, BringCom will be providing SD-WAN services with in-depth security capabilities in East and West Africa.
Telco managed service providers face numerous networking and security challenges in countries where IP and leased line prices differ widely and where cloud ecosystems are not yet mature. This is particularly true with last-mile network delivery to branch offices. The integration of Versa's SD-WAN capabilities into BringCom's solution offerings will provide users with access to SD-WAN and Cloud services in East and West Africa, and through DataNet, a BringCom company based in Kampala, Uganda. The availability of such solutions will enable BringCom to deliver cost competitive SD-WAN solutions to corporate customers while supporting the development of a more robust cloud ecosystem in the region.
Versa's SD-WAN solution combines full multi-tenancy, multiple deployment options, zero-touch provisioning and a broad set of security functions to enable solution providers to create high value managed service offerings. As a result, enterprise customers are able to leverage these new capabilities to manage their WAN costs while simplifying their operations and improving application performance. Additional benefits also include resilient connectivity and critical security functions like next-generation firewall and secure web gateway that automatically integrate with other networking functions.
