China Telecom Global has announced the launch of its SD-WAN service portfolio – in partnership with Versa Networks – that aims to provide greater connectivity, flexibility and cost savings for businesses globally.

CTG says its SD-WAN service is unique in that it enables direct and secure access to public cloud services such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon via backbone networks. The service will also be accessible via mobile devices.

Also, by leveraging Versa’s carrier-grade NFV software, CTG offers an on-the-go network diagnostics solution to its customers, who will be able to easily check connectivity quality.

Benefits of the SD-WAN service offering include improved Internet connectivity and increased flexibility via cloud control, which enables options of scaling connectivity up and down based on specific times of the day, thus minimizing expensive investments in routing hardware.

“SD-WAN is the future for businesses – especially SMEs– seeking greater access, capacity, speed and control,” said Joe Han, executive vice president of China Telecom Global. “Together with Versa Networks, we are committed to the evolution of SD-WAN.”

CTG’s SD-WAN service is available now and will grow to over 30 global cloud gateways (or PoPs) by the end of 2017 across Asia Pacific, Europe and North America, providing seamless coverage for its users. To date, nodes have been set up in Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Paris, Frankfurt, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Mumbai. CTG will also extend service coverage to major cities in China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen by leveraging China Telecom’s domestic resources.
