Silver Peak has revealed a new partnership with professional services firm NSC Global in an effort to expand its growing managed SD-WAN services portfolio.
The expansion, set to include a large part of the Asian market, will see the networking vendor leverage presence across more than 180 countries with a network of over 4,500 partner resources.
The SD-WAN infrastructure market is expected to reach US$4.5 billion by 2022, and according to IDC, the battle for supremacy comes down to a select group of vendors, namely, Silver Peak, Cisco, VMware and Riverbed.
"By partnering with Silver Peak, we can expand our global SD-WAN deployment services practice, offer a white-label managed SD-WAN service to our service provider clients and offer new and existing enterprise clients turnkey managed SD-WAN services,” said Sascha Groeger, chief commercial officer of NSC.
“For service provider clients, this means they can fast-track managed SD-WAN service offerings to accelerate new revenue opportunities.
"And for enterprise clients, this means they can quickly transition to SD-WAN and accelerate cloud and digital transformation initiatives to achieve greater business agility and productivity. We are excited to partner with Silver Peak to bring the power of EdgeConnect to our clients around the world."
NSC now serves as a single source provider, offering professional SD-WAN deployment services, white-label managed SD-WAN services to tier one and multi-national service providers and turnkey managed SD-WAN services to new and existing enterprise clients.
The new Silver Peak-based managed SD-WAN services are available immediately to NSC enterprise and service provider clients and partners globally, allowing the offering of metered white label managed SD-WAN services at large-scale levels.
The agreement with NSC includes pre-sales, advisory and consulting, as well as procurement, hardware, software, purchase or lease, in addition to staging and provisioning, device and circuit testing and management, alongside deployment, install, turn-up, test and lifecycle management.
The firm will also provide 24x7x365 monitoring and break-fix, capacity analysis and reporting, as well as network and application performance monitoring, management and reporting, in addition to expedited moves, adds, changes, and deletes (MACD).
“Our partnership with NSC brings together a powerful combination of flexible, tailored IT services with the industry’s only business-driven SD-WAN edge platform, effectively raising the bar on service agility and flexibility for our mutual enterprise and service provider customers around the world,” said Michael O’Brien, vice president of partner sales of Silver Peak.
“NSC can now accelerate post sale SD-WAN deployments with its partners, deliver turnkey white-label managed SD-WAN services to its service provider clients and offer new and existing enterprise clients turnkey managed SD-WAN services. Together with NSC, we are radically simplifying the way wide area networks are built and managed."
