Sprint confirms the global expansion of its SD-WAN infrastructure through an expanded relationship with VMware.

Using VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud gateways across North America, South America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, Sprint’s SD-WAN now covers more than 100 countries representing an increase of 150% in the last year.

"Sprint and VMware have a shared vision of enabling enterprises around the world in their digital transformation journey with the best networking solutions," said Sanjay Uppal, senior vice president and general manager, VeloCloud business unit, VMware.

"At VMware, we are committed to helping Sprint deliver dynamic, globally scalable WAN solutions that enable application performance, network availability and accelerate transformation at the network edge."

Sprint’s Certainty combines multi-layer network diversity with SD-WAN to deliver 100% availability service level agreement (SLA). It brings together all customers need together in one turnkey solution from a single provider without compromising security.

"The management capabilities of VMware SD-WAN enable Sprint to provide a higher quality experience for our customers. Now, non-traditional, cost-effective ways of connecting are more viable," said Mike Fitz, vice president of Sprint's Global Wireline business.

"Along with the promise of our Certainty network design model, Sprint is delivering a comprehensive solution that meets customer performance expectations, wherever they may be around the globe."

Sprint says that its wireline network transformation is near complete with more than 97% of TDM circuits migrated. As a result, its customers are enjoying better performance, more stable networking environments and fewer outages.

"Our wireline new logo wins with Fortune 1000 companies have tripled over the past two years," said Jan Geldmacher, president of Sprint Business.

"I believe this is because our customers value Sprint's transformative approach towards modern wireline technologies and acknowledge us as a trusted advisor, who is looking out for their best interests."
