China Broadband Communications (CBC) has announced that SD-WAN eNet Connect will be extended to cover Asia Pacific and Europe after its success in China, adding 15 global point of presence (PoPs) to the existing 35 PoPs in China.
“With the expansion of eNet Connect, CBC supports Chinese companies expanding overseas, or global MNCs looking to make their business foray into China,” Hoo Shu Yee, VP, product and solutions of CBC stated.
Today, businesses are increasingly turning to the cloud for their business network adopting hybrid SD-WAN solutions, while shedding their traditional MPLS networks. Business networks have fundamentally changed, becoming more digital at their core. Organizations are moving quickly to ensure platforms and infrastructure run smoothly to deliver a seamless customer experience.
SD-WAN is mostly built over the internet as a key proposition of SD-WAN is to lower network costs. However, as an internet network, no single provider has full control over traffic routing. Consequently, poor and unstable internet impacts SD-WAN performance and negates any benefits of SD-WAN, affecting business operations.
