VeloCloud announces new partner program “Ready, Set, GO”

VeloCloud’s newest partner program takes aim at service providers that need to deploy SD-WAN on the fly

Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) company VeloCloud announced its “Ready, Set, GO” partner program, which is intended for service providers that need to set-up an end-to-end SD-WAN service within a month. The program encompasses 50 tier one and tier two global service providers, such as AT&T, Sprint, IBM, MetTel, Vonage, Windstream and TPx Communications.

The Ready, Set, Go program enables service providers to deploy its SD-WAN services, like automatic policy in addition to edge and cloud security, quickly to their partners and end customers. Since VeloCloud’s SD-WAN services are based in the cloud, the majority of these solutions can be tailored to meet the needs of carrier provides.

“Our objective is to provide cloud-based architecture and deliver virtual services via software from the cloud. VeloCloud’s capabilities aligned well with this vision,” said AT&T’s Rosa Maria Boza, vice president, Enterprise Networking, AT&T Business. “VeloCloud’s virtualized infrastructure supports us in delivering network efficiency and flexibility for our customers.”

With the newest program, the company is looking to help partners distinguish themselves with its SD-WAN service. Cloud-based services or distributed on-premises services can be deployed as an over-the-top solution using VeloCloud virtual services platform or VeloCloud SD-WAN NFV at third-party vCPE.

“Telstra’s networking strategy of SDN and NFV playing a key role for network flexibility and agility is consistent with the capabilities of VeloCloud’s innovative and proven architecture,” said Jim Clarke, director of Global Connectivity Networks, Telstra Enterprise. “We are embracing new network architectures that help businesses achieve more agile and responsive networks, and we believe that VeloCloud SD-WAN can be a key piece of our strategic priority to grow our business globally.”

Global Capacity, a Waltham, Mass. telecom provider that began a partnership with VeloCloud in April, said the company’s cloud-based OTT architecture allows it to deploy SD-WAN services to partners using a mix of hybrid technologies, including broadband, wireless, DIA and private line. Although the Ready, Set GO program is specifically tailored for modern-day carriers, VeloCloud said it intends to modify the program later to incorporate system integrator partners.

“Global Capacity’s use of VeloCloud SD-WAN enabled us to push the innovation of our carrier neutral marketplace model by offering a managed SD-WAN service over-the-top of our hybrid connectivity services and customers’ existing circuits,” said Chris Alberding, senior vice president product at Global Capacity. “VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered architecture is a game changer for Enterprise networks. It allowed us to quickly build a managed SD-WAN service that customers see as low risk to migrate to, easy to implement, and offers control and visibility into both network and application performance.”
