Vonage recently introduced its SD-WAN solution, SmartWAN, available to small and medium-size business (SMB) customers using the Vonage Business Cloud. SMBs are now able to run their cloud communications using public broadband connections with Quality-of-Service (QoS). The Vonage SmartWAN service is fully integrated into the company’s cloud-based unified communications services and provides full path QoS for voice and video calls. What’s more, the services are offered in a tiered bandwidth structure, enabling customers to tailor their investments on a per-location basis.
SD-WAN is an architecture that has grown in popularity over the years, largely as a way to create a network connecting branch offices in different locations. In 2015, Vonage launched its SmartWAN, geared toward enterprise customers that use voice, video and data communications for business operations. Since then, nearly 40 percent of the company’s deployments have included the service.
