Kamloops, BC: iTel Networks Inc., a Canadian Technology Service Provider announced their investment into Multapplied Networks SD-WAN business platform. This new SD-WAN investment creates opportunities for both companies to provide branch-office connectivity across Canada in a simplified and cost-effective manner, compared to traditional router-based WANs.
The emergence of public cloud computing and SaaS has, ‘’made traditional enterprise WAN architectures substandard, from a price and performance point of view,’’ says Dan Rink, CEO of iTel Networks. With more and more organizations implementing digital business transformations, the traditional WAN infrastructure is slowly becoming incompatible. Gartner reports, SD-WAN technology will be included in up to 75% of WAN infrastructure refreshes by 2020.
The new approach to deploying and managing hybrid WANs is to use application-centric policies or business logic, rather than network centric characteristics. The benefits of an SD-WAN approach are ‘’substantial compared to traditional approaches, including an improved capability to handle changing network traffic patterns, simplified management and operation, reduced costs, and increased visibility and security,’’ says Dan Rink of iTel.
Gartner reports spending on SD-WAN technology will grow at 30.2% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2022.
“We’re thrilled to work with iTel to take our SD-WAN platform to market. iTel’s investment in Multapplied helps us leverage their Canadian presence, as well as marketing and sales capacity to increase sales, ” said Geoff Hultin, President of Multapplied Networks.
