Joint SD-WAN offering makes it easy for clients to move to a digital
network architecture

SAN JOSE, Calif. & BANGALORE, India–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CloudGenix–Wipro Limited(NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global
information technology, consulting and business process services company
and CloudGenix Inc., a leading provider of Software-Defined Wide Area
Networking (SD-WAN) products, today announced a partnership to offer
open and managed SD-WAN services. Termed as WANFreedom, the service
allows enterprise customers to rapidly deploy cloud, SaaS (Software as a
Service) and data center applications over any combination of MPLS
(Multiprotocol Label Switching), Internet broadband and LTE (Long Term
Evolution) networks, thereby enabling a rich user experience and IT
infrastructure cost optimization.


Traditional WAN products based on proprietary hardware and complex
routing protocols result in substantial dependencies and inhibit cloud
adoption. With WANFreedom, customers will be freed from dependencies on
WAN transport, proprietary hardware routers, networking complexity,
therefore freeing up IT teams to focus on rapidly delivering business
value.

Over the next five years, SD-WAN sales are forecast to grow at a 69.6%
compound annual growth rate, reaching $8.05 billion in 2021, according
to the IDC
Worldwide SD-WAN Forecast: 2017–2021 (doc #US42904317, July 2017) report
.
This growth is fueled by rapid adoption of cloud, SaaS and data center
applications, the commoditization of connectivity boosted by low-cost
and high-capacity broadband availability, and the digitization of remote
offices.

Kiran Desai, Senior Vice President & Global Head, Global
Infrastructure Services, Wipro Limited said,
“By partnering with
CloudGenix, Wipro now offers its customers an end-to-end managed WAN,
delivering a host of benefits including WAN transport independence, the
ability to seamlessly integrate multiple telecom and network carriers
and WAN types, improved WAN availability, uncompromised access to cloud,
SaaS and rich media applications, elimination of proprietary hardware
routers, and significant cost savings. These capabilities provide
enterprises the freedom to adopt cloud, UCaaS (Unified Communications as
a Service), SaaS and other modern applications without compromising
security, performance, or visibility.”

Kumar Ramachandran, CEO, CloudGenix said, “Wipro is a recognized
global leader in deploying, managing, and operationalizing network
infrastructure. Wipro’s WAN assessment and prescriptive service delivery
model ensures customers gain instant time to value without needing to
‘rip and-replace’ their legacy WAN infrastructure.”

Wipro’s SD-WAN capabilities meet enterprise customers’ digital business
needs while ensuring robust performance, security and compliance in line
with their business application policies. Supported by its Software
Defined Everything (SDx) Center Of Excellence and ServiceNXT, a
next-generation managed services framework, Wipro’s enterprise
