Nexon Asia-Pacific partners with VeloCloud for Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN

11 Oct 17

Nexon Asia-Pacific (Nexon) has announced its partnership with VeloCloud, a Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN company.

As part of the continuous evolution of its networking strategy, the partnership will see an extension of Nexon’s WAN capabilities that clients can leverage to enable visibility, flexibility and performance leading to a better user experience as well as network simplification and automation.

The industry has evolved significantly over the last few years.

With more data and information, ubiquitous Internet access and, smart technologies, the demand on networks has escalated tremendously.

Software-defined technology such as SD-WAN from VeloCloud offer possibilities for more innovative streams of work including Internet of Things that require next-generation network capabilities.

“Our infrastructure and applications today are built ‘everything-on-demand’, ‘everything-as-a-service'; and most importantly, a constantly hyper-connected end user group.

Whilst many of us are striving to be agile, responsive and innovative, we are still facing challenges from legacy network infrastructure,” says Garth Sperring, Nexon Asia-Pacific practice lead (network and security).

“With optimal networking capability, user experience with unified communications and collaboration solutions such as Nexon Absolute, as well as cloud services and applications would be enhanced.

“We believe that software-defined networking is the way forward and this underlines the importance of our partnership with an innovative organisation such as VeloCloud,” comments Sperring.

“Networking demands for enterprises have changed dramatically in the age of cloud and digital transformation with a greater focus now being placed on business objectives and user experience,” says Michael Wood, VeloCloud marketing vice president.

“While VeloCloud is characterised by performance, security, simplicity, ease of deployment and automation, VeloCloud partners like Nexon bring expertise, experience and unique differentiation that enable end users to quickly implement and realise the full benefits of Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN.”

As a managed and cloud service provider that has strong background and expertise in networking, Nexon has been an advocate of networking especially in a hyper-connected world today.

Nexon’s capability lies in not only in networking but in how it works with clients to bring tangible business outcomes through an integrated end-to-end business technology solution.

With a strong focus working on mid-market businesses and service-oriented sectors, such as health and aged care, legal and accounting services, not for profit, as well as government services, that use mission-critical applications, Nexon and VeloCloud continue to highlight the importance of cloud-delivered SD-WAN.
