08 Feb Vodafone Ireland launches managed SD-WAN service
Vodafone Ireland has launched a new SD-WAN service, and announced an SD-WAN customer win with airline Ryanair. The operator didn’t say which SD-WAN vendor it was using for its new managed service offering, but it has previously deployed Cisco’s Viptela SD-WAN offering.
Vodafone Ireland did say the newest SD-WAN offering, which is targeted at medium-to-large organizations, is virtual, and that it sits on both existing and new networks.
With the SD-WAN service, Vodafone Ireland’s customers will also be able to manage applications, devices and bandwidth usage via a single self-service portal. It also optimizes network performance by switching over to MPLS, lower-cost internet or mobile connections as needed.
