Going beyond traditional connectivity services, businesses can now leverage Ooredoo Qatar’s newly-launched Enterprise EDGE service. This enables the network to be a comprehensive and all-in-one source for software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) needs.
This service can be added to any standard networking service to speed cloud adoption, boost operational agility, and meet network connectivity’s need for cost-effective bandwidth. As described on the website, the service provides abstract software to separate network software services from the main hardware, creating a secure, independent, and reliable network.
Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad bin Nasser Al Thani, chief commercial officer at Ooredoo, said, “Once again, we are offering innovative, future-proof digital solutions to serve our customers. This new managed service will be provided at an incremental charge, costing moderately more than standard connectivity services while delivering superb returns on the investment.”
“In the weeks ahead, we will be sharing some of the many Enterprise EDGE use cases we are developing with customers, including those in government and oil and gas. Businesses are invited to follow our social media and the Ooredoo Qatar website to stay up-to-date with these exciting developments,” he added.
The SD-WAN ready service also combines multiple access points (multi-protocol switching using MPLS/LTE and broadband IDs) and uses routing technology to choose the best pathway, ensuring consistent performance and having the capability to overcome any quality and outage issue.
Developed in collaboration with SD-WAN and SASE pioneer VMWare, this new managed service includes key features such as a flexible service model with a high level of service level agreement (SLA); a flexible business model; leased devices at the customer’s location to reduce capital expenditure (CapEx); and simplified WAN management.
