Viptela Signs Macnica and Nissho Electronic for SD-WAN in Japan

Viptela, which offers a software-defined WAN solution, announced partnerships with Macnica Networks and Nissho Electronics for the Japanese market.

These two leading solution providers will deploy Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) for large enterprises using the Viptela Secure Extensible Network (SEN) platform. Viptela enables enterprises to combine multiple transports into a single, cloud-adaptable WAN that is centrally managed. The solution provides robust security and makes it possible to construct highly flexible and agile WAN environments with significantly lower operating costs.

Viptela disaggregates voice, video and data services from the physical network using a single overlay WAN that supports any number of different transport connections, and provides end-to-end encryption and device authentication. Viptela enables granular network segmentation for separation across different lines of business, partner networks, etc. with centrally managed policies to optimize application performance, meet enterprise security requirements and slash operational costs.

“Large enterprises in every market, including Japan, face the same WAN challenges caused by cloud computing, the rapid growth of data and video traffic, and the need to mix and match separate transport networks,” said Amir Khan, CEO of Viptela. “We are pleased to be working with Macnica Networks and Nissho Electronics to bring the business benefits of Viptela’s SD-WAN technology to enterprises in Japan.”
