“We viewed SD-WAN as a threat to our business. We don’t like any overlay solution. It takes away the value of our network. But customers are putting pressure on us, so we really have no choice. If we don’t offer SD-WAN, our competitors will,”  said one of the Service Providers (SP) to me during our SD-WAN discussions last year. Since then, we have seen significant interest for SD-WAN  from both the incumbent and alternative SPs. In fact, there have already been several SD-WAN announcements from various SPs recently, for example: Vonage SmartWAN to Deliver Enhanced Quality of Service for Business Customers…

For some time, I have been very frustrated with my online banking accounts – checking, saving, 401Ks, mortgage, investment, credit cards, etc. All these accounts have different logins and passwords. Often times I forget the credentials or even the account itself. Some accounts have mobile app, some don’t. But I found that moving to financial account management service like mint.com saves me from going insane and makes it very efficient to manage all these accounts from a single pane of glass with a consistent experience. It works from any device. Even better, it tells me when my next bill is due! I…

This was our second year exhibiting here and the same business challenge of delivering UCaaS over Bring Your Own Broadband (BYOB) or Circuit (BYOC) is becoming even more common this year. The questions and concerns we heard from UCaaS providers were: We have to turn away customers because we cannot support off-net deployment We cannot support BYOB/BYOC while ensuring quality of service We are getting a lot of demand to deliver our service over the…

Earlier this year, we published our first release of VeloCloud Internet Quality Report. This report provides insight into the Internet performance during 2H/2014 and its impact to the applications and user experience. We found the Internet performance was unpredictable and could not provide consistent quality of experience demanded by enterprises. However, using the SD-WAN technology such as one provided by VeloCloud can overcome the Internet unpredictability, make Internet an enterprise-grade WAN, and provide enterprises with cost effective, reliable, high performance WAN. We recently updated the report with Q1/2015 data and presented the findings during our Webinar. Here are the highlights: The percentage of time that the…
