Colt now enables partners to offer its feature-rich and award-winning SD WAN proposition to their end customers globally, without the need for heavy investment or extensive development.
London, UK, 9 March 2021 – Colt Technology Services has today announced the launch of its SD WAN White Label solution, enabling wholesale customers to seamlessly launch a global and award-winning SD WAN service from Colt, complete with a customisable end-customer portal.
With Colt SD WAN White Label, wholesale customers can rapidly tap into the enterprise SD WAN market’s huge potential with a mature, innovative, and globally available solution without an upfront investment and minimal internal development.
To address the constant changes in enterprises’ connectivity requirements today, Colt recently enhanced its SD WAN proposition with SD WAN 2.0, offering transformative new features including the WAN optimisation suite, advanced firewall enhancement, greater network insights, and an optional Self-Install CPE capability.
SD WAN White Label from Colt allows wholesale and Systems Integrators to provide the complete breadth of industry-recognised SD WAN 2.0 features to their end customers, including a user portal that can be fully customised to the provider’s visual brand.
The SD WAN market is growing significantly as more enterprises implement SD WAN to enhance agility and support for cloud applications. Such demand for software-defined solutions is driving requirements for network service providers and Systems Integrators to provide high-quality SD WAN services to their end-customers across an expanding footprint.
Combined with the reach of Colt’s fully-owned IQ Network, which connects to more than 900 data centres and over 29,000 on net buildings globally, this extended proposition from Colt offers a differentiated solution with speed to market, high volume service provisioning, and operational simplicity.
Colt’s Vice President Product Portfolio, Peter Coppens, said: “Since launching SD WAN in 2016, Colt has continued to invest in the technology, and we’ve seen it become a true enabler for the way enterprises do business.
“We are excited to be white labelling our award-winning SD WAN because we know it will enable service providers and SIs to quickly tap into the huge potential of the enterprise SD WAN market. Equally, business transformation can accelerate through enhanced user experience, powerful analytics, and end-to-end security.”
These new features follow other SD WAN announcements made by Colt last year, including the launch of SD WAN Multi-Cloud enabling customers to leverage a single connection to reach multiple Cloud Service Providers over SD WAN. Colt also launched VoIP optimisation and support for IPv6 – underpinned by SD WAN.
Colt was also recently named a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Software-Defined WAN Services, Q4 2020.
Colt’s SD WAN White Label solution is available from today.
