I had the good fortune of attending Cisco Live last week. VeloCloud SD-WAN cloud networking technology works nicely with the Cisco IWAN (Intelligent WAN) solution.

Turns out VeloCloud makes Cisco IWAN an even more powerful solution by creating significant bandwidth across one or more links. A single link gets noticeable improvement and with two or more links you start to get exponential improvement in bandwidth and quality. In fact, the VeloCloud Edge software ran as a virtual instance on the router itself…

Earlier this year, we published our first release of VeloCloud Internet Quality Report.

You may know that Internet speeds in the U.S. are slower than the rest of the world but you may not realize how bad it really is. In fact, “the U.S. ranks a shocking 31st in the world in terms of average download speeds.”  Imagine that people in Lithuania, Iceland or Thailand can upload pictures or files to Dropbox faster, or Skype with better voice quality than in the people in the U.S even though both Dropbox and Skype are U.S based companies. In a recent Gizmodo article, Adam Clark Estes, clearly explains the reasons for – U. S. has “shitty”…

The Interop 2015 show this time was simply a precursor to a much grander event – billed as the fight of the decade between Mayweather and Pacquiao.

Analytics and Visibility were also…
