By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor
Glue Networks’ gluware WAN offers the high-performance and security that companies require with professional-level IT support to get their remote offices up and running with the push of a button. They need not spend a fortune, relative to conventional private networks.
Providing the companies the ability to turn on advanced networking features as they need them, gluware WAN also handles all the on-going maintenance, monitoring and life-cycle management for a company’s network.
The company recently expanded its partnership with Cisco (News - Alert) Systems to support Cisco Next-Gen WANs as a cloud-based networking service. Glue Networks uses the gluware technology to support Cisco Next-Gen WAN as a Service. This is the industry’s first and only cloud-based networking automation engine that automatically creates, maintains, administers and manages next-gen networks anywhere in the world.
Next-Gen WAN-as-a-Service is offered in partnership with Cisco and other channel partners. Users can now connect any location with broadband Internet access to an enterprise’s core network. This provided them with the predictable round trip time (RTT) and high-performance delivery of voice, video and real-time data.
“We are enabling Cisco Next-Gen WAN customers to rapidly deploy and easily manage their expanding wide area networks at a fraction of the cost and time required for traditional solutions,” said Jeff Gray, Glue Networks’ chief executive officer. “This is a very exciting revolution in the way next-gen networks are deployed and managed.”
Recently, TMC’s (News - Alert) Mandira Srivastava reported that the company partnered with with St. Louis-based World Wide Technology, Inc. (WWT) to be a channel reseller of the Glue Virtual Office product. WWT is a systems integrator that offers unique technology and supply chain solutions to the commercial, government and telecom sectors. The organization generates approximately $1.8 billion of its $3 billion in revenue, integrating and reselling Cisco products.
