BOULDER, Colo. -- Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) today announced the launch of its software defined wide area network (SD-WAN) solution. Zayo’s SD-WAN is an integrated extension of Zayo’s fibre-based IP/MPLS backbone offerings that makes enterprises’ networks easier to manage, improves performance and enhances reliability and failover options.

In today’s IT environment, enterprises need to accommodate a growing number of users accessing the network from a wide array of locations with widely varying access options. Cloud-based enterprise applications add another layer of complexity. As a result, WAN management has become more challenging and resource intensive.

Zayo’s SD-WAN streamlines WAN management and is available in both basic and advanced packages, including managed and unmanaged options. The solution enables flexible, cost-effective location integration and service provisioning, incorporating MPLS, internet and LTE into primary and multi-path configurations. Dynamic traffic steering prioritizes traffic at the application level to the paths available to deliver an optimal network performance. Zayo’s SD-WAN integrates seamlessly with both internet and IP-VPN connections to provide greater capacity and resiliency.

With the launch of SD-WAN, Zayo enhances its portfolio of WAN solutions that already includes a robust array of IP and Ethernet-based solutions and managed and unmanaged solutions, to fit the customer’s network preference. Customers have portal access to monitor and optimize their traffic, down to the application level, or they can fully outsource the network management to Zayo.

“The WAN is one of the most critical components of any enterprise network infrastructure and can be complex and challenging to manage,” said Mike Strople, president of Zayo Enterprise Networks. “Zayo’s SD-WAN makes WAN management easier and more efficient, providing better performance, flexibility and reliability.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
