China Telecom subsidiary has launched an SD-WAN and security solution aimed at the global enterprise market

China Telecom Global has launched a new software defined wide area network (SD-WAN) solution and security product aimed at global enterprises.

CTG, a subsidiary of China Telecom, will offer a managed SD-WAN service built on Versa Networks’ suite of virtualised network and security functions, providing customers with business agility and cloud readiness.

The Chinese firm is deploying Versa’s multi-tenant SD-WAN and SD security solution in 15 cloud hubs across the globe. 

Nemo Lin, director of the cloud operation centre of CTG, said, “By leveraging Versa’s portfolio of software-defined technologies, we now offer our customers a richer, more business- and application-centric networking resource. 

“This initiative also enables users to drive digital transformation through the cloud and unleash the growth potential in new markets and geographies.”

CTG SD-WAN enables customers to connect their international branch offices to their corporate headquarters using Internet connectivity and robust application identification, security and policy enforcement, Versa said.

“China Telecom Global serves an ever growing base of Chinese and other global corporations,” said Robert Zhu, senior director of Asia Pacific at Versa Networks. 

“As their customers realize the benefits that a cloud-native network architecture can offer in the way of increased business agility, cloud enablement and user experience, as well as cost savings, CTG will be well-positioned to be the network provider of choice.  Versa is very excited to partner with CTG and enable their global customers to digitally transform their networks and overall business processes.”
