Orange Business earns the top leaders spot in the Everest Group PEAK Matrix Assessment for Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) Services Providers 2021
Date: November 2021
According to Everest Group, with accelerating digital transformation and enterprises adding more services and applications to their networks, the traditional Wide Area Network (WAN) is no longer efficient in handling enterprises’ network requirements. Thus, enterprises are increasingly adopting Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solutions, which offer better network traffic management, visibility, and security, along with lower operating costs and investment. However, these solutions are marked by several adoption challenges, such as interoperability issues, concerns around change management, lack of trained resources, and poor visibility into application performance. Thus, enterprises are looking for the right partners to ensure successful SD-WAN deployments and to supplement their digital transformation journeys.
“Digital transformation initiatives among enterprises have accelerated, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to a work-from-home culture. This change, along with rapid cloud adoption, has constrained the existing WAN infrastructure and has driven the mainstream adoption of SD-WAN solutions,” said Mukesh Ranjan, Practice Director, Everest Group. “Orange Business owns secure private infrastructures and can integrate MPLS, SD-WAN, security, mobility and Internet services with WAN optimization and application visibility services. Clients appreciate Orange’s quality of service, technical expertise, and reliable global coverage. These capabilities have led to it being positioned as a Leader in the inaugural Everest Group’s 2021 Software Defined Wide Area Network Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment.”
