Comms365 is targeting the fast growing market for Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) solutions where demand is forecast to drive revenues to circa $6bn in 2020, according to IDC. Meanwhile, Gartner expects 30% of enterprises to be using SD-WAN products in all their branches by 2019.
"The proliferation of data being consumed on a day-to-day basis by businesses is demanding a completely new way of managing networks," stated Comms365 MD Mike van Bunnens.
"Business owners and IT managers need to gain control over their critical and non-critical application traffic streams, utilise the combined bandwidth of dedicated private circuits and broadband access links for cost-efficiency and still deliver the experience their users expect and require."
In response to this market demand Comms365 has added Prism to its cloud portfolio, a SD-WAN application control service.
"Prism provides organisations with a lower total cost of ownership of their WAN while providing the equivalent and enhanced capability of a MPLS network," claimed van Bunnens.
"Legacy, expensive private networks are becoming saturated with cloud-based traffic. And SME businesses are increasingly utilising Software-as-a-Service from cloud-based providers for essential business productivity.
"SD-WAN is rapidly emerging as a new way to design and deploy a WAN, giving end users, network engineers and service providers the ability to adjust, optimise, automate and test their WAN connections through software controls."
