PT&T partners with VMware

Philippine Telegraph and Telephone Corp. (PT&T) has partnered with US-based VMware Inc. to offer a new service that allows enterprise clients to manage their bandwidth usage.

PT&T said the VMware Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) complements its connectivity offerings as this improves network quality and application performance as well as simplifies support and troubleshooting.

Touted as the next big thing in multi-site interconnect technology, SD-WAN works by automating network discovery and configuration, and redirecting network traffic to the most reliable links. Some solutions also add security capabilities to enable optimally protected traffic.

Ella Mae Ortega, PT&T general manager for IT services and large enterprise, said the inclusion of VMware SD-WAN in the company’s product portfolio further strengthens its lineup of core business solutions aimed at providing value added services to customers.
