ZTE & InfoVista Certify Interoperability of SD-WAN Solutions

    Combined solution delivers single-box application aware networking on low-cost platform for enterprise customers and service providers worldwide

    Shenzhen, China and Paris, France – June 26, 2017– ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions and InfoVista, the leading provider of network performance orchestration solutions for a better connected and collaborative world, announced the successful completion of interoperability testing of their combined SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) solution by integrating InfoVista’s Application Performance Orchestration Solution (“Ipanema”) with ZTE’s Micro Cloud Gateway (MCG) platform.

    After successful verification testing, the combined SD-WAN solution provides a single box overlay networking solution for hybrid WAN connectivity, guaranteeing performance of critical business applications while also supporting a secure overlay VPN, zero touch installation and one-button recovery. This can be delivered at an extremely competitive price for enterprises looking to drastically reduce IT networking costs. Service providers can also use the new platform to deliver value-added SD-WAN services to their enterprise customers as they implement hybrid WANs and augment their enterprise networks.

    The combined SD-WAN solution can replace multiple enterprise and communications equipment deployed in traditional WANs, enabling fast distribution, deployment, data backup, and disaster tolerance one-button recovery on a cloud-managed platform. The solution provides enterprises with Application Performance Orchestration capabilities that protect and guarantee the user experience of their business-critical applications essential to digital transformation strategies.
