Teridion has just launched an SD-WAN solution for China which uses standard broadband connections.
We broke the news about the company entering the enterprise space with an SD-WAN competitor back in April.
They do this by setting up an overlay network in the public cloud.
Global customers with locations in China can now easily deploy Teridion for Enterprise across their entire network, with all of the performance, reliability, and global network management benefits of Teridion’s cloud-based SD-WAN service.
Teridion’s global SD-WAN service is fully integrated with all leading WAN, SD-WAN and security edge solutions from providers such as Cisco Meraki, Fortinet, Citrix, Palo Alto and others, and also supports connectivity to legacy branch office routers and firewalls. Enterprises no longer need to deploy costly carrier circuits or MPLS networks to gain high-performance connectivity to or from their sites in China. According to the company, customers can expect lightning-fast file transfers, pristine voice and video sessions, and overall performance comparable to MPLS to and from China.
“We’re excited to extend the benefits of Teridion for Enterprise to the mainland China locations of our global customers,” said Sean Dublin, VP of Sales for Teridion partner 26Connect. “The performance, agility, simplicity and value of the service are a game-changer for us.”
Extending enterprise WANs into China can be expensive and cumbersome, typically requiring dedicated circuits which are costly and inflexible. Regulatory requirements typically force an enterprise to architect the mainland China portion of their WAN differently, increasing operational costs and complexity. With Teridion, customers deploy and manage their China sites in the same simple and flexible way they manage their Teridion networks globally. The Teridion service can be configured in minutes and deployed in hours with a simple IP-SEC connection from the site’s WAN CPE to the Teridion network PoPs in China.
Sold through Teridion’s partner network, Teridion for Enterprise enables partners to deliver a high-performance SD-WAN service to their customers with locations in China as part of a uniform global solution. Partners can offer the same CPE and manage the entire solution, including China, through Teridion’s portal. Partners’ customers with locations in China connect can manage their Chinese sites identically to the rest of their Teridion network. No dedicated circuits are required, and service can be initiated by partners in hours.
Teridion customers with sites in China will now enjoy all the benefits of Teridion for Enterprise, including:
- An MPLS alternative delivering comparable performance and reliability without requiring a costly dedicated circuit.
- Accelerated throughput to private workloads located in any cloud provider globally, with full multi-cloud and hybrid cloud support.
- The lowest possible latency, loss, and jitter metrics for video and voice applications.
- High-throughput, operationally reliable performance with on-demand bandwidth up to 1Gbps.
“Teridion for Enterprise sets a new standard for enterprise WAN connectivity in China – a network that is flexible, highly scalable, performant, and compliant”, said Pejman Roshan, VP of Products and Marketing for Teridion. “Unlike other alternatives, Teridion is fast to deploy, easy to manage, and fits effortlessly into an enterprise’s global SD-WAN deployment through our integration with leading SD-WAN and security appliances.”
By tightly integrating with leading SD-WAN solutions, Teridion unites centralized cloud management, enterprise-grade security, and ultra-fast WAN performance in a single offering delivering circuit-like end-to-end performance, reliability, and consistency across standard broadband Internet connections. Teridion’s service is powered by Teridion Curated Routing, a cloud-native approach to routing that draws on the power of deep learning and brings hierarchical routing, route optimization using telemetry and performance metrics, and operational consistency and reliability to Internet enterprise networking. Teridion Curated Routing radically improves WAN, application and SaaS performance.
Trade tensions aside this is big news as it allows far more effective and affordable communications to China. Companies doing business there will benefit from more choice, quality and security thanks to Teridion.
