NTT Communications Corporation has launched NTT SD-WAN Service Portfolio, the world’s first SD-WAN platform with coverage spanning over 190 countries.

In another first, NTT Com sets a new industry benchmark by becoming the world’s first global provider to deploy a 100 percent software defined network that provides the framework for NTT Com to offer a rich suite of overlay SD-WAN services for global and regional enterprises, along with industry leading SD-WAN network performance for enterprises and end-users.

The global software defined network provides NTT Com with unprecedented flexibility and speed to launch new services designed to assist enterprises in transforming their businesses and responding to their competition. NTT Com is expanding its Software-Defined Network Service and now has more choices to offer customers by launching these SD-WAN services.

NTT SD-WAN platform is based on a groundbreaking architecture that is locally distributed around the world via 75+ local cloud centers (LCCs), optimized for network, mobility, and security services. NTT SD-WAN real-time streaming network analytics offers CIOs and their IT staff deep insight into application performance, network security, and the end-user experience. The platform also supports the delivery of services from customer premises equipment located at customer branch offices.

NTT Com is leveraging software defined technology and platform acquired via the Virtela acquisition in 2014. Virtela, a leader in software defined networking, was offering software defined network services to enterprises for over 12 years at the time of acquisition. Together, the NTT Com and Virtela teams continue to accelerate the development of NTT Com’s “SDx+M Solution Strategy.”

“NTT SD-WAN Service Portfolio is backed by our employees’ unmatched passion for customer support,” says Ron Haigh, President of Virtela, NTT Com’s global enterprise network business unit. “NTT Com would like to thank our customers, partners, and employees for helping us achieve this software defined networking industry milestone.”
