SoftBank Corp. Selects Aryaka for its International SD-WAN Service, SD-CORE(aryaka)
We’re pleased to announce that SoftBank, one of the largest technology providers and system integrators, has selected Aryaka for its international SD-WAN service. SoftBank, a technology leader, is embarking on a new stage of the Information Revolution with a “Beyond Carrier” strategy. They aspire to be a company that contributes to society by providing innovative services across a range of industries, going beyond the realms of conventional telecommunications carrier business models.
This is a strategic global partnership that includes joint marketing. In Japan and APAC the two companies are bringing together the best of both worlds – a global leading SD-WAN solution with localized support. They have committed to marketing Aryaka’s services to their installed base, which has a heavy emphasis on manufacturing as well as China, two of of Aryaka’s strong suits. In the near future the companies will be conducting a sales roadshow across SoftBank’s key regional offices throughout APAC and EMEA, and SoftBank will also be bringing the Aryaka solution into their affiliates, such as the Axiata Group in Malaysia and Indonesia. As a reality check, the two companies are well on their way in developing a strong opportunity funnel.
SoftBank, as part of their new SD-CORE(aryaka) offer, is tapping into Aryaka’s new FlexCore™, a global L3 private core that can be used to supplement its best-in-class global L2 private core, all of which is interconnected to the company’s nearly 40 high-performance points of presence (POPs) that are strategically located around the world. This allows SoftBank to map customer sites to the private core of their choice whether it’s based on performance or cost considerations or based on the criticality of sites and applications. And they will be able to take advantage of Aryaka’s hybrid enterprise and cloud friendly alignment that’s able to map where enterprises are going with their traffic, connectivity, applications, and investment.
In addition to providing customers with a portal site that can centrally manage devices and networks, SoftBank will provide its customers with one-stop support for maintenance and operation after installation. In addition, customers are able to build a more secure network because it can be linked with numerous cloud-based security services, including those provided by other security companies.
