Meta Networks, whose network-as-a-service offering appeals to a variety of solution providers across the security, networking and managed services spaces, wants to start with a limited number of initial partners, and make them successful before expanding the program.
The SD-WAN space has lately attracted the focus of big players like Cisco and VMware. Martello, which has been in business for years, is about to go public through a reverse takeover, and believes that their differentiated solution gives them something that they can take to market successfully through the channel against the big boys.
Viptela, whose SD-WAN platform is differentiated by a centrally controlled overlay network that simplifies policy changes, cuts costs, and provides more flexible access to cloud connections, expands its go-to-market by being integrated in the SevOne platform. They also indicated that more such partnerships are coming.
After a long restructuring, Avaya now has its two core next-gen offerings available, and has a systematic and well thought out plan to take them to market, leveraging both its channel and internal resources better than in the past. They still have to execute on these better than in the past however.
