Article | March 29, 2020

Versa Networks has been listed as the leading Secure SD-WAN vendor, according to an industry report published this month by Dell'Oro Group. DellOro Groups inaugural SD-WAN market share, published in the 4Q19 Router & Carrier Ethernet Switch Report, ranked Versa as the number three overall SD-WAN vendor, based on 2019 worldwide revenue, making Versa the top pure-play and Secure SD-WAN vendor. The report also revealed that the worldwide SD-WAN market grew 64% and surpassed the $1 billion level in 2019, and the five leading vendors, including Versa, accounted for a combined revenue share of almost 60% in 2019. “SD-WAN had a breakout year in 2019,” says Dell’Oro Group vice president Shin Umeda. “The market moved beyond the early adopter phase, and we observed that vendors with larger installed bases gained the critical mass needed for sustained revenue growth. And we predict the demand for SD-WAN technologies will increase significantly over the next 5 years.”

What's New In 5G - May 2021

Article | May 5, 2021

The next-generation of wireless technologies - known as 5G - is here. Not only is it expected to offer network speeds that are up to 100 times faster than 4G LTE and reduce latency to nearly zero, it will allow networks to handle 100 times the number of connected devices, revolutionizing business and consumer connectivity and enabling the "Internet of Things." Leading policymakers - federal regulators and legislators - are making it a top priority to ensure that the wireless industry has the tools it needs to maintain U.S. leadership in commercial 5G deployments. This blog provides monthly updates on FCC actions and Congressional efforts to win the race to 5G.

How Is SD-WAN The Fastest Moving Technology?

Article | February 10, 2020

A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is an evolution of traditional WAN that allows businesses to leverage different networking options and transport services to connect users to applications. This includes the MPLS, LTE and broadband internet services. The SD-WAN is a better, more efficient means of supporting latency-sensitive applications. Enterprise customers can make use of this new network to increase network and application performance and/or lower costs, all of which contribute to improved user experience.

As 5G growth accelerates, CSPs have new opportunities for network differentiation and service growth

Article | July 7, 2021

Despite the COVID-induced interruptions in the first half of 2020, 5G preparations and deployment continued in earnest in the second half of 2020 and now the market – vendors, CSPS, OEMs – are ready to bring 5G to the masses of users. The arrival of Apple’s first 5G devices in 4Q20 marked the tipping point of global consumer readiness, now extending from early-adopters. After the initial phase of network launches that saw coverage built-out in major urban centres, 5G service providers should now focus on expanding coverage to as many areas of high-data demand as possible. At the same time, as CSPs gauge their 5G roll-out strategies, they shouldn’t ignore rural areas with limited-to-no high-speed broadband coverage. In many markets, particularly developing ones, CSPs should carefully assess network-sharing as a way to cost-effectively tap pent-up demand, especially given the accelerating remote working trend.
