Business World - - CORPORATE NEWS - P. P. C. Marcelo

GLOBE TELE­COM, Inc. on Tues­day launched its Soft­ware-De­fined Wide Area Net­work (SDWAN), a cloud-based tech­nol­ogy aimed at busi­nesses with mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions.

The Ay­ala- led telco said in a state­ment that SD - WAN uti­lizes a plug- and- play de­vice us­ing cloud- based tech­nol­ogy that can be eas­ily in­stalled and con­fig­ured as long as there is fixed broad­band con­nec­tiv­ity.

Globe SD-WAN com­ple­ments a com­pany’s ex­ist­ing Wide Area Net­work ( WAN) and In­ter­net Pro­to­col — Vir­tual Pri­vate Net­work (IPVPN) con­nec­tions. Com­pa­nies can also ap­ply au­to­mated rerout­ing of traf­fic across the most ef­fi­cient routes and con­nec­tions.

“This is best suited for com­pa­nies that have mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions. It fa­cil­i­tates the way you pro­vide and man­age con­nec­tiv­ity to dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions,” Al­bert M. de Lar­raz­a­bal, Globe chief com­mer­cial of­fi­cer, told re­porters dur­ing the launch event.

With the new tech­nol­ogy, Globe said banks can run real-time ap­pli­ca­tions and trans­ac­tions on mul­ti­ple con­nec­tions to their branches and ATMs that lever­age on an in­tel­li­gent sys­tem. If a link fails, ap­pli­ca­tions on bank trans­ac­tions and op­er­a­tions will con­tinue to run us­ing avail­able band­width in the other con­nec­tions.

Com­pa­nies can also re-route to SD-WAN non-mis­sion crit­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing video con­fer­enc­ing calls, and e-mails.

Globe Se­nior Vice-Pres­i­dent for En­ter­prise Group Pe­ter Ma­quera is op­ti­mistic on the ap­petite of clients for the tech­nol­ogy.

“We’re ex­pect­ing a pretty good take up be­cause it’s a proven tech­nol­ogy,” Mr. Ma­quera told re­porters.

Globe recorded P15.08 bil­lion in net in­come last year, down 5% from 2016.
