CITIC Telecom CPC Boosts European Business Networks with Unique SD-WAN Offering
LONDON, AMSTERDAM, TALLINN AND MOSCOW, 10 July 2018 — CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited (“CITIC Telecom CPC”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CITIC Telecom International Holdings Limited, today announced the launch of its SD-WAN solution, branded as “TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid,” across its European network as part of a global solution.
Designed to address the needs of today’s distributed enterprises for more flexible, open and cloud-based WAN technologies, TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid is a Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solution that virtualizes the topology of enterprise network infrastructure, integrating multiple access technologies (including private WAN networks, mobile networks, and Internet links) into a single active-active hybrid WAN that can be easily orchestrated, while maintaining excellent Quality of Service (QoS) and network resilience.
“Modern enterprises need modern infrastructure,” said James Halberstadt, CITIC Telecom CPC’s European Managing Director. “Legacy fixed WANs cannot efficiently or effectively cope with the digital transformation demands of modern business. Multiple application deployment and operational models, short lead times and challenging Service Level Agreements for mission critical services that are now deployed in private and public cloud require a new hybrid SD-WAN approach.”
Amplified Enterprise Agility
TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid supports TrueCONNECT™ Premium QoS and is the ideal solution for mission critical and traffic heavy applications, which will automatically be assigned optimal network resources (such as MPLS paths) for a more seamless and responsive end-user experience.
Addressing the multi-cloud topologies of modern enterprises, TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid enables elastic cloud-to-cloud interconnectivity, securing all private and public cloud connectivity (for all applications and transport methods) between branch offices, remote sites and larger corporate data centers.
By offering breakthrough flexibility, security, efficiency, and management ease, compared to traditionally routed enterprise WAN architecture, TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid helps enterprises achieve hybrid WAN connections, while greatly simplifying enterprise WAN orchestration and administration. It ensures organizations have the agility to swiftly and easily react to market or environment changes, while minimizing time, overhead, complexity and cost. It can also be combined with TrueCONNECT™ Accelerator (Managed WAN Optimization Services) to further increase WAN throughput effectively and economically, with even greater bandwidth utilization and application performance.
Easy and Efficient Administration
As a “one-stop-shop” managed solution, TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid uses a “Single Box” deployment approach to deliver maximum convenience for CITIC Telecom CPC’s enterprise customers, with each customer site only requiring one network device that is fully managed by CITIC Telecom CPC’s 24×7 professional teams. Customers can easily monitor their WANs via a user-friendly management portal, while CITIC Telecom CPC handles daily maintenance, troubleshooting, and other administrative concerns, freeing up customer IT staff so they can focus on more productive tasks.
“TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid truly and literally redefines distributed enterprise infrastructure,” added Mr Halberstadt. “Our professional service teams right across Europe can also customize the solution to fit each customer’s unique business needs. With an increasing number of European Enterprises depending on external providers for mission-critical cloud-based platforms and applications, and anticipated business growth via opportunities stemming from China’s One Belt One Road Initiative, I am pleased we can offer this remarkable solution to our European customers so they can readily enjoy the benefits of cutting-edge network virtualization and gain new levels of business agility and cost-effectiveness.”
TrueCONNECT™ Hybrid is immediately available and seamlessly interoperates with CITIC Telecom CPC’s other flagship enterprise solutions. For more information, please visit www.citictel-cpc.com.
