SD-WAN is proving to be a key component of the digital transformation at hand, as it supports the cloud era and all those SaaS (News - Alert) applications we love so much. In a few short years, this market evolved from speculative to special, and with this shift came a growing focus. As a result, partner programs are growing rapidly, aiding in the explosive expansion of this nascent software-defined technology.

Talari Networks announced this week that PhillyCom earned Gold partner status in Talari’s SMART Partner Program. PhillyCom possesses a record of successful Talari deployments, and now the IT solutions provider is focused on the opportunity SD-WAN presents.

Gartner (News - Alert) projects that, between 2014 and 2018, WAN architecture will be a priority for firms with several remote locations that seek to support the adoption of cloud services. The space is expected to see 86 percent growth in that time span, primarily because when IT is looking at network performance and cost the rigid architectures of the past are unable to support modern network requirements.  

“PhillyCom, Inc. is proud to be recognized by Talari Networks (News - Alert) and grateful to our teams for their hard work and dedication that has helped to make our partnership such a success,” according to Tom Desilets, President at PhillyCom, Inc. “We’re excited to continue to grow our relationship with Talari Networks, working together to deploy and support powerful network solutions that enhance productivity and deliver great ROI for our customers.”

PhillyCom will offer the Talari Networks SD-WAN solution, which can be delivered in the cloud, virtual or physical locations. And, payment models include monthly subscription rates, as-a-service or perpetual licensing.

Jeff Zeichick, Vice President of Sales at Talari Networks, explains “They [PhillyCom] have a broad range of knowledge and expertise that has proven to bring value to our customers, helping to launch reliable, secure and scalable SD WAN Solutions easily and cost-effectively.”

In sports, picking a winner can prove impossible at times, even for the most skilled handicapper. But, when it comes to SD-WAN, I’ll say this: if I were a betting man, I know where my money would be.

What type of WAN are you working with?
