VeloCloud and MetTel Deploy VMware for Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN
VeloCloud Networks Inc., the Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN company and a VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP), today announced that MetTel, a leading communications solutions provider for enterprises and a VeloCloud business partner, deploys VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN running on the VMware vCloud NFV platform, featuring the production-proven VMware vSphere platform.

VeloCloud enables enterprise-grade performance, security and reliability to both enterprise and cloud applications as part of the MetTel managed SD-WAN and bonded Internet solution. VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN runs as an overlay over Internet and Hybrid links while simplifying deployments and reducing costs.

MetTel deploys vSphere® as network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) to run VeloCloud Gateways, which it integrates seamlessly with the MetTel private MPLS network. The resulting enhanced Hybrid WAN solution is particularly effective for MetTel customers.

VeloCloud is exhibiting its Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN in Hall 3, Stand 3K10 in the VMware Pavilion at Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona. VeloCloud CEO and Co-Founder Sanjay Uppal will also participate in a panel discussion titled "Understanding the Business Imperatives for NFV" on Feb. 22 at Noon CET in the VMware Pavilion.

"Using VMware vSphere to support our adoption of network functions virtualization is a perfect complement to VeloCloud SD-WAN and is a key to our technology choice," said Ed Fox, VP Network Solutions at MetTel. "VMware helps us deliver new revenue-generating services, and transforms our infrastructure and operations through the adoption of NFV. VMware's carrier-grade solution for NFVI combines production-proven virtualized compute, networking and storage. Our future mobility strategy and vision are also well aligned with VMware AirWatch and Identity Manager as well."

"MetTel is a great example of the synergy that VeloCloud and VMware bring to a future of increased virtualization and software-definition in wide area networks," said Mr. Uppal of VeloCloud. "All of us share a common vision of flexibility, simplicity and automation for enterprise WANs of the future. Using VMware allows us to abstract away from specific hardware to deliver on-demand services for both on-premise and cloud based SD-WAN."

"Service providers require technology partners that bring together best-in-class NFV solutions in order to accelerate their business and operational transformation," said David Wright, vice president of operations, Telco NFV Business Group at VMware. "Together VMware and VeloCloud are helping MetTel leverage a unique cloud model built on a proven VMware vSphere virtualization foundation to deliver differentiated services to enterprise customers."

In addition to his panel session, VeloCloud CEO Mr. Uppal, as well as MetTel's Ed Fox, will be interviewed by Telecom TV on the topic "Customer Experiences and Business Benefits from a Joint Partner/VMware Deployment."
