CenturyLink expands SD-WAN solutions

Available across Asia Pacific, Europe, North America and Latin America.

CenturyLink SD-WAN, a key component to customers' hybrid networking solutions, is now available in more than 30 countries.

CenturyLink SD-WAN leverages the benefits of private networking such as MPLS as well as public networking to include dedicated internet access, broadband and wireless connectivity.

"With our expansion of SD-WAN globally, we provide customers a complete hybrid networking solution which helps them adapt and accelerate enterprise cloud enablement," said Adam Saenger, vice president of networking solutions, CenturyLink. "We deliver secure, scalable and cost-efficient private-public networking across a full range of connectivity types, enabling enterprises to be more agile and decrease risk."

Designed to enable digital transformation, hybrid networking solutions with CenturyLink's SD-WAN include all the hardware, software and controller infrastructure, as well as central administration via a customer portal to create and control enterprise overlay networks. Additionally, integrated capability options include next-generation security, CPE upgrades, on-site installation and professional services.  

"As SD-WAN adoption continues to pick up pace globally, it is highly critical for managed SD-WAN providers to have a strong global footprint as businesses look to connect internationally distributed locations," said Roopa Honnachari, industry director, Frost & Sullivan. "CenturyLink's expansion of its SD-WAN capabilities worldwide enables the company to compete effectively in the global SD-WAN market. The company's recognition by MEF with the 2017 Best SD-WAN Managed Service is further validation of CenturyLink's strengths in the market."
