Sprint boosts SD-WAN global reach for enterprise network management

Sprint’s Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) services have expanded reach worldwide, allowing enterprises to manage its global IT resources and application performance across any network at any destination throughout Asia-Pacific, Latin America, North America and Europe.

Sprint served 54.6 million connections as of June 30, 2018 and is recognized for developing, engineering and deploying technologies, including the initial wireless 4G service from a national carrier in the United States; leading no-contract brands including Virgin Mobile USA, Boost Mobile, and Assurance Wireless; instant national and international push-to-talk capabilities; and a global Tier 1 Internet backbone.

Sprint’s legacy of innovation and service continues with an increased investment to improve coverage, reliability, and speed across its nationwide network and commitment to launching the first 5G mobile network in the U.S.

Sprint SD-WAN delivers simplified management from the cloud, reducing time in implementing mass configuration changes; increases availability at the application and link layers, expands bandwidth optimization through link aggregation. It also increases visibility through simplified management and global monitoring, identifying and stopping rogue users and applications. The cloud-based network connects applications across any network to any location, and delivers support for converged, cloud and real-time applications.

With a turnkey managed SD-WAN solution from Sprint, enterprises are able to lessen IT strain and focus resources on critical initiatives that drive the business forward and develop a competitive edge.

“With just one dedicated Sprint team and one simple portal in the cloud, an enterprise is now able to more intelligently manage all of its network resources across the globe with the geographic expansion of our SD-WAN services,” said Mike Fitz, vice president of the Sprint Global Wireline Business Unit. “Intuitive cloud-based management allows thousands of applications to be easily managed across any network to any destination, all anchored by Sprint’s worldwide, Tier 1 wireline network. The result is better network availability, unparalleled monitoring, superior converged application support, an improved user experience and overall reduced operational costs.”
