Having invested substantially to build out connectivity in the Philippines, Globe is leveraging on its enhanced network connectivity to deliver cloud-based business services across the country. Evolving from the IP-VPN services of the past, which often took months to deploy, the Nuage Networks VNS solution leverages any kind of network connectivity, including mobile. This makes it especially suited to challenging geographies such as the Philippines, an archipelago with over 7,100 islands, according to Nokia.
With the Nuage Networks VNS, Globe will differentiate itself by adding automation, improved flexibility, application-aware routing and per-application security, while offering a managed, self-service VPN portal to its customers. The Globe SD-WAN business service will enable enterprise customers to quickly and securely connect branch employees with central cloud-based applications and services, nationwide.
Gil B. Genio, Chief Technology and Information Officer (CTIO), and Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) of Globe Telecom, said: "We are excited to partner with Nuage Networks to bring the first fully operationalized SD-WAN service to the Philippines. The policy-driven automation will simplify our operations and enable us to cost-effectively expand our service footprint. The Globe SD-WAN service will enable our business customers to fully leverage the power of the cloud to connect with their customers and grow their businesses right across the country."
