NTT East reportedly has chosen Cisco’s SD-WAN powered by Viptela for its new managed SD-WAN services under its VPN service portfolio for enterprises.

The company uses SD-WAN to address the challenges of shortage of IT resources and increasing management costs by efficiently linking applications, branch offices and mobile workers so that organizations can securely deliver applications to users while achieving IT agility and reduced costs.

“We are constantly working to solve social issues through the use of ICT and to advance digital transformation in society,” said Naoki Shibutani, Senior EVP and representative director, NTT EAST. “We are very pleased to create this new service by collaborating with Cisco to deliver its SD-WAN solution to solve corporate challenges from workstyle reform, security measures, and labor shortage. With these enhancements, we are committed to continuing to provide secure, reliable and optimized network services to solve challenges that society faces.”

According to the release, the new solution includes the Cisco SD-WAN controller, the Cisco ISR 1100 series router as the customer premise equipment (CPE), the Cisco CSR 1000v as virtual CPE and Cisco Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) as the managed SD-WAN service foundation.

“We are pleased to collaborate with NTT East to offer new managed SD-WAN services that support business efficiency and advance digital transformation,” said Ichiro Nakagawa, VP, Service Provider Business, Cisco Japan. “In today's business world where agility to respond quickly to market changes is critical, we realize that this managed SD-WAN service can help Japanese companies adapt quickly while focusing on business strategies and critical operations. Together with NTT East, Cisco will continue to expand high-reliability, high-quality network services for the Japanese market.”
