128 Technology's President On Breaking Away From The SD-WAN Pack

Are customers looking to SD-WAN primarily because of the potential cost savings involved?

We have one partner who was looking to bring up a call center for their end customer on a Caribbean island. Picture getting MPLS to that island. They were up and running in six days on our technology, completely seamless to the customer. That sort of acceleration saves months when you're looking to do a network transformation like that. A lot of what's looking to move to SD-WAN is retail. They live and die by the phone. Because of our Session State, you can actually pull the phone connection and it will not only fail over, it will not lose the call. If you're a retail operator, that's amazing.
