MetTel is a US-based CSP with around 8,000 enterprise clients, and has been very successful as one of the first service providers to bring SD-WAN into the marketplace. It selected VMware VeloCloud as its SD-WAN provider to meet the demands of its customers to provide WAN services with SLAs per application and virtual LAN from branch to application source. As it continues to evolve its network services into a cloud-native model, MetTel plans to lean on the infrastructure that Dell EMC provides, along with the full suite of VMware Telco NFV software to grow and sustain the model.
One of the key benefits of the ‘Better Together’ initiatives with Dell EMC and VMware is that it allows customers like MetTel to very easily transform from a hardware infrastructure to Software Defined infrastructure, taking the platform and stack and putting it into their network for rapid service deployment. And with both companies continuing to innovate on their technologies, CSPs can be assured that their initial deployments will result in quick time to market.
