Prodapt, a consulting, technology & network services provider to the Digital Service Provider (DSP) industry, announced a partnership with flexiWAN, an open-source SD-WAN platform to hit general availability and joining Prodapt’s Open Virtual Exchange.
DSPs face challenges with an exponentially growing validation matrix to offer best-of-breed virtual edge services. OVX brings Telcos, Cloud Providers, and OEMs under one umbrella to create differentiated virtual network service stickiness for DSPs, which couples the network, cloud, and applications for unified user experience across network-based, or OTT SDWAN offerings.
Through this partnership, Prodapt would offer a pre-vetted, hardened, and tightly coupled network-based open-SD-WAN through its OpenVX technology vendor marketplace. Prodapt’s OpenVX comes with unique test logic methodology, network bots & analytics accelerators around flexiWAN’s modular architecture will accelerate the rollout of differentiated SD-WAN services.
“A major concern of service providers is lack of differentiation when reselling SD-WAN solutions. flexiWAN offers an Application Framework that enables service providers’ to differentiate their SD-WAN services by dynamically loading specific networking applications that run in the flexiEdge data flow or in flexiManage,” said Amir Zmora, CEO & co-founder of flexiWAN. “Bundled with Prodapt’s OpenVX accelerator SD-WAN automation/AI bots, testing & best-of-breed marketplace integration methodology, we are glad to join forces to help DSPs reduce the overall SDWAN services TCO and deployment cycle.”
“This partnership would drive a service ready Open-SDWAN solution framework with underlying best-of-breed uCPE vendors and service orchestrators in OpenVX ecosystem,” said Rajiv Papneja, SVP & Global Head of Network Services at Prodapt, “We are delighted to onboard FlexiWAN into our partner ecosystem and strengthening our pre-vetted OpenVX SDWAN solutions marketplace to DSPs.”
