Fibrenoire picks VMWare's SD-WAN solution by VeloCloud
Fibrenoire, a subsidiary of Videotron and provider of connectivity solutions, has announced the addition of the VMware SD-WAN solution by VeloCloud to its services offerings.
The VMware SD-WAN solution enables businesses to securely support application growth in the cloud and increase network flexibility. In addition, it provides them with greater agility in implementing and configuring branch offices across the network.
"Fibrenoire is proud to partner with VMware, a true leader in SD-WAN technology," said Alexis Bourson, general manager of sales marketing at Fibrenoire, which is based in Canada. "This offer reinforces our commitment to increasing the performance of businesses by optimising their telecommunications infrastructure."
VMware SD-WAN combines the economic benefits and the flexibility of a real-time network overlay with the speed of large-scale deployment and automation of cloud services. Leveraging VMware SD-WAN, businesses can support cloud application growth, network flexibility and simplified branch implementations. They can also optimise access to cloud data centres and SaaS applications.
"Beyond offering a simple SD-WAN solution, as many competitors do, it was important for us to offer one that guarantees the best performance for our customers," said Cyrille Mertes, CTO at Fibrenoire. "Our resolutely geeky side obliges, we tested a multitude of solutions before concluding that VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud is far superior to others on the market."
The solution delivers better application performance thanks to its Dynamic Multi-Path Optimisation (DMPO) capability, which is made up of three main functions: continuous connection monitoring, dynamic application steering on a per-packet basis and on-demand remediation.
"Many SD-WAN solutions attempt to offer one of these three functions, but only VMWare SD-WAN offers all three simultaneously," added Mertes.
"VMware is pleased to be working with Fibrenoire," added Sasha Emmerling, senior director of marketing VMWare, VeloCloud. "VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud provides Fibrenoire's customers with an industry leading SD-WAN solution for automation, improved application performance, reliability, security and better management of available network resources."
