According to Jojo Gendrano, PLDT VP and Head of Enterprise Core Business Solutions, the new SD-WAN technology allows enterprise owners to have the ability to better fir their data, application needs, and their budget for the underlying network service supporting those applications.

“Branch heavy industries like banking and finance, as well as the retail industry, can further improve data uptime, especially as their applications become data dependent, centralized, or more focused to the cloud. Similarly, BPOs can better address seasonality requirements of their clientele,” Gendrano says.

PLDT Enterprise has since partnered with global software-defined network and services provider Zenlayer to beef up its robust and competitive international offerings.

“We are very excited to introduce SD-WAN technology to the Philippine market. Local enterprises are always looking for ways to easily scale their business requirements up or down, and this will allow them to do so in real-time, making for simpler, more efficient management of resources,” says SVP and Head of PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups Jovy Hernandez.

Aside from its extensive SD-WAN lineup with partners covering international network requirements, PLDT also has the country's biggest software-defined and network connected data centers.
