TelePacific Turns Up Nationwide SD-WAN

TelePacific has signed a long-term contract with VeloCloud Networks to provide the foundation technology to deliver SD-WAN nationwide.

Using TelePacific’s VeloCloud-powered SD-WAN solution, customers can turn up new locations, add or delete services and monitor their network performance through a single cloud-based integrated software system. TelePacific’s managed services platform, enabled by SD-WAN, uses an easy-to-deploy, software-programmable device is plugged into any customer broadband connection to the Internet. The TelePacific cloud then pushes the exact configuration needed to fill the customer’s requirements to the device and, within minutes, their ordered services are up and running.

This is a big departure from the complicated, expensive installations of hardware and cables typically needed to provision new services.  TelePacific now can deliver new services over a secure, quickly adaptable network framework defined by software instead of telecom hardware.

“Delivering high quality and resilient performance over any network connection from any carrier is key to our national growth,” said Jared Martin, vice president of TelePacific’s ITx managed services business. “We already have more than 100,000 hosted communications seats and the ability to be truly transport-agnostic is going to make that number explode. There are other over-the-top (OTT) offerings out there, but they promise ‘best efforts’ instead of guaranteeing performance.”

Initially, TelePacific is making that enhanced OTT capability and its UCx unified communications suite the flagship offerings utilizing its SD-WAN capabilities.

“Our Ethernet ecosystem has just gone galactic,” said Martin. “We piloted this with customers across the country, to rave reviews. We can deliver TelePacific products and services using SD-WAN anywhere that a customer has a broadband connection, with the same guaranteed performance that businesses and enterprises of all kinds depend on us to deliver. Today, voice and video are just as business-critical as data and we provide the management, access and reliability our customers need.”
