Inseego and Riverbed Deliver Enterprise-Grade IoT Solution for Software-Defined WAN
May 23, 2018
Enterprise-grade Skyus® DS2 selected as preferred IoT connectivity solution for Riverbed’s customers
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 23, 2018-- Inseego Corp. (NASDAQ: INSG), an industry leader in solutions for mobile enterprises, today announced a joint IoT solution with Riverbed Technology for enterprises to deploy reliable and secure business continuity as a safeguard against network outages. The InseegoSkyus DS2 is the first and only enterprise-grade IoT solution certified with Riverbed’s award-winning software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) solution, SteelConnect®.
SteelConnect is the first and only SD-WAN solution that provides unified connectivity and policy-based orchestration spanning the entire distributed network fabric – hybrid WAN, branch WLAN/LAN, data centers and the cloud, with one-click connectivity into Microsoft Azure and AWS. When paired with SteelConnect SD-WAN, the Skyus DS2 provides robust failover connectivity delivering secure high-speed internet backup when the primary broadband networks become compromised. In addition, the Skyus DS2 includes a dual-SIM supporting multiple global LTE bands, which provide flexibility and lowers overall deployment costs across multiple geographies and varying mobile operators.
“Most, if not all, cellular-based modems in the market today are not designed to meet the demands of enterprises and industrial environments, which is a pain point amongst IT managers,” says Ashish Sharma, EVP of IoT and Mobile Solutions of Inseego Corp. “With the Skyus DS2, companies can easily deploy affordable, reliable LTE Advanced backup connectivity over Riverbed SteelConnect to work in any geographic location with the peace of mind that it will deliver unrivaled, secure performance, even in tough conditions.”
“Riverbed SteelConnect is a simple, unified and powerful SD-WAN and cloud networking solution that enables organizations to transform their network to align with the cloud era,” said Paul O’Farrell, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Riverbed’s Cloud Infrastructure Business Unit. “Riverbed and Inseego have partnered to ensure that enterprises can maximize reach and connectivity while increasing network resiliency and agility by leveraging LTE uplinks.”
Enterprises are striving to digitally transform their businesses in order to stay competitive in today’s cloud-first ecosystem. However, limitations of legacy networks have become roadblocks to achieving a true digital transformation. To address these challenges, organizations are adopting SD-WAN technologies to combat the demands that digital and cloud strategies are placing on the network. Research firm IDC estimates that worldwide SD-WAN infrastructure and services revenue will grow 70 percent annually, reaching more than $8 billion in 2021 (Source: IDC)1.
