HGC to launch SD-WAN services for enterprise customer

15 May 2017 | Jason McGee-Abe


Hutchison Global Communications (HGC) has launched software-defined wider area network (SD-WAN) services to enable enterprises to better manage their networks in the complex WAN network environment.

The Hutch SD-WAN platform aggregates bandwidth and can be integrated seamlessly to enterprises’ existing networks, enabling the delivery of any combination of MPLS, internet, and mobile network. The seamless integration of multiple networks enables a path to public internet for apps which are not latency critical, while reserving data capacity for more mission-critical applications.  As a result, non-critical data can be offloaded to secured internet network, freeing up MPLS bandwidth for business critical data. Using SD-WAN reduces enterprises’ operational cost

“We at HGC are pleased to launch our own SD-WAN platform. It is critical for enterprises to reach full resource utilisation and cut cost wherever possible – and it is our mission to help them achieve so. With our existing international IP backbone network, high performance delivery, cost reduction, and security can be guaranteed.” James Lai, Vice President - Product and Business Development, International Business, HGC.
