Singtel ConnectPlus SD-WAN powered by Viptela simplifies enterprise WAN environments by establishing a unified network plane that spans disparate networks, from MPLS to Internet and metro Ethernet. While giving enterprises control through network segmentation for separate lines of business, partner networks, public WiFi access, etc. with end-to-end visibility. It enables organizations to centrally create, control and enforce policies throughout the network to meet performance requirements for different application types including voice, data and video. This service helps organizations reduce operating costs by providing a single point of control over network requirements regardless of the number of physical locations and networking devices used.
The judges noted that unifying disparate networks is “a big issue in the industry” and that the Singtel/Viptela service is “right on trend, which is what we look for in this category”. In addition to the “impressive capabilities” of the service, the panel highlighted “Singtel’s large footprint in Asia”.
