Infovista has updated its Ipanema Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) platform to enable Managed Service Providers to unlock new subscription revenues.
Enhancements include multi-tenancy features and a ‘flex up and down’ consumption-based licensing model that enables MSPs and customers to change service tiers and capacity options without initiating a new set-term contract.
Kristian Thyregod, President Global Enterprise, Infovista, said: “This update helps MSPs to better address the requirements of a growing community of end-customers that are implementing SD-WAN for the first time, in part due to the need to tackle work-from-home issues and growing cloud and SaaS usage.
“The new update builds upon our ‘transparent’ concept that allows the delivery of SD-WAN without the need for costly replacement or complex reconfiguration of network switches and routers. This allows our partners to enable new services without expecting customers to commit to major CAPEX spend.”
The update also enables MSPs to build SD-WAN capability into value-added services via integrations with Unified Communications, remote backup and enhanced security services, for example.
Gartner forecasts growth in SD-WAN deployments of around 18% annually to the end of 2024. By 2024, it expects managed SD-WAN adoption to have reached at least 60% of enterprise locations.
