NetworkingTop Stories

Verizon Business is enhancing its Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) digitization strategy with the addition of Cisco managed SD-WAN services, including options for 4G/5G connectivity. 

Automation, Artificial Intelligence, 5G and Real Time Enterprise (RTE) present new requirements and complexities, which test the limits of legacy Information Technology infrastructures.

With these new solutions, enterprises can leverage Verizon’s 4G and 5G networks, as well as the Network-as-a-Service strategy, giving them the ability to scale, adopt the latest technology and remain agile to meet ever-changing customer demands.  

“Organizations are challenged with finding flexible and secure networking solutions that enable the rapid transition to hybrid cloud and hybrid work while maximizing application performance for their users,” said Massimo Peselli, Senior Vice President, Global Enterprise, Verizon Business.

“The addition of these Cisco solutions builds on our longstanding history of co-innovation and provides customers with the agility and scalability to meet today’s needs while future-proofing their operations.”   

Besides enabling hybrid connectivity, Verizon’s NaaS with Cisco SD-WAN solutions helps simplify operations, employ an asset light model, optimize resources, allow network and security convergence, improve user experience from application-aware routing and increase business agility. 

Todd Nightingale, EVP and GM, Enterprise Networking and Cloud, Cisco, said: “Verizon’s new Cisco managed SD-WAN offer delivers cloud security and 5G capabilities, reduces complexity for customers, and enables private network connections to Cisco’s Webex service cloud.”
