Liberty Global, the international cable networking giant with operations across major territories in Europe, has named Versa as its "preferred supplier" for SD-WAN capabilities.

It's part of Liberty Global Inc. (Nasdaq: LBTY)'s drive to build up its business services portfolio for large enterprise and government customers. SD-WAN is key to that strategy, providing flexible and easily deployable connectivity for enterprise branches.

Liberty's biggest business services unit is Virgin Media Business Ltd. (VMB), part of Virgin Media in the UK. VMB will take the lead in deploying Versa technology for Liberty and launching cloud SD-WAN services, which should be commercially available later this year.

VMB went through a six-month RFI and RFQ process, selecting Versa for innovation and speed for corporate and government customers, Liberty says.

Liberty expects SD-WAN will help the company expand across Europe, including forays into Germany, Belgium and Switzerland, the company says.

Part of Versa's appeal is it doesn't have legacy tie-in to specific customer premises equipment (CPE), instead having a set of preferred CPE partners, Liberty says.

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.
