8x8 has forged a tech partnership with cloud-first WAN company and end-to-end managed SD-WAN provider Aryaka.
The link up extends the 8x8 Open Communications Platform across Aryaka’s managed SD-WAN service.
Vik Verma, Chief Executive Officer at 8x8, said: “Extending the 8x8 Open Communications Platform with SD-WAN will provide enterprises with highly stable and productive employee, partner, and customer interactions across the globe.”
The companies will co-market the combined solutions, and 8x8 will also resell Aryaka’s managed SD-WAN service, bundling regional and global managed SD-WAN services with 8x8’s UCaaS and CCaaS offerings. The offerings will include introductory service bundles.
Ghassan Abdo, Research Vice President, Worldwide Telecom, Virtualization & CDN at IDC, added: "We are living through unprecedented times that require enterprises to accelerate the move to an online digital business and support massive growth of remote workers.
"SD-WAN together with cloud communications and collaboration is a great choice to support this new digital economy and address the need for a massively distributed and remote work environment."
