Inseego, a 5G and intelligent IoT device-to-cloud solutions pioneer, announced that its Skyus DS and DS2 4G LTE devices have been certified for use with VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud, enabling businesses with distributed operations to use LTE for both primary and backup communications — quickly, easily and very cost-effectively.
“We’re proud to work with VMware, an SD-WAN industry leader, to offer industrial-grade 4G LTE device solutions that are certified for use on their SD-WAN Edge,” said Inseego EVP of IoT & Mobile Solutions Ashish Sharma.
“Today’s distributed enterprises need fail-safe communications everywhere, including point-of-sale systems, remote branch offices and other locations.
Our Skyus portfolio can be deployed virtually anywhere to deliver secure, fast, reliable LTE and LTE Advanced connections supporting mission-critical business applications, with exceptional high reliability. Our device solutions are fully tested to integrate with VMware software and work out of the box with an easy plug-and-play setup.”
VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud delivers fast, flexible, and high-performance branch access to cloud services, private data centers, and SaaS-based enterprise applications. With VMware SD-WAN, branch offices can be set up easily in a few minutes — without an onsite IT resource — slashing deployment time and bandwidth costs, and providing agile, highly secure connectivity.
“No business can afford to have their network go down. That’s why we’re very pleased to team with Inseego for the benefit of our SD-WAN customers,” said Steve Woo, senior director, product management, VeloCloud business unit, VMware.
“Inseego provides strong expertise in 4G and 5G cellular connectivity, enabling customers to deploy fast using wireless as active, or even the only WAN circuit option.”
Designed and developed in the USA, the Inseego 4G LTE device lineup connects millions of endpoints worldwide. As the LTE network coverage become pervasive, the WAN connectivity market for industrial and enterprise applications has continued to grow.
Advanced 4G LTE networks, as well as the upcoming 5G NR networks, will add a lot of network capacity that will make cellular WAN connectivity an attractive option for enterprises.
CIO reports that enterprises now run 77% of their workloads in the cloud. These mission-critical applications need constant, fail-safe connectivity. IHS Markit surveyed 400 companies and found downtime was costing them a collective $700 billion per year.
In addition to the monetary costs, downtime impacts business productivity, and damages brand reputation and customer loyalty.
Unlike rigid legacy networks that are difficult to provision, SD-WAN networks can be deployed quickly and reconfigured easily. That’s why enterprises are adopting these solutions so quickly. IDC estimates that worldwide SD-WAN infrastructure and services revenue will grow 70 percent annually, reaching more than $8 billion in 2021.
