Why I Believe VeloCloud Won Awards, Recognition, Partners and Customers in 2015

All in all, and by any measure, it’s been a successful and interesting year for VeloCloud. Every CEO wishes for industry awards (12 in 2015), and more importantly, customers (over 100 in 2015) and partners (over 30 in 2015). However, if you ask what caused this success in 2015 it comes down to two key things, “simplicity” and “affordability.” You could make the argument that the WAN market is now ready for SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Networking). You could also make the argument that perhaps having a simple and affordable WAN alternative like VeloCloud’s SD-WAN solution has helped to make the…

What do VPC and Online Banking have in common?

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.

It works from any device. Even better, it tells me when my next bill is due! I…

“In design, one plus one equals three sometimes” – Josef Albers The Open Networking User Group (ONUG) is having its Fall 2015 conference this week at New York University’s Kimmel Center.

Last week we wrapped up BroadSoft Connections 2015 in Phoenix. We had quite a few interesting conversations with Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) providers. 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…
