Norway’s Broadnet has signed an SD-WAN commercial deployment framework contract with Chinese vendor Huawei, and on the back of doing so has officially launched SD-WAN services. In a press release announcing the development, Broadnet claims that by using Huawei’s SD-WAN solution it can provide private line offerings with higher quality and better user experience for European enterprise customers. Specifically, the Norwegian operator is reportedly able to provide enterprise customers with on-demand and cost-effective enterprise private line services with cloud-based, visualised Operations and Maintenance (O&M), while by using Huawei’s complete series of high-performance customer premises equipment (CPEs), Broadnet can provide WAN connections for enterprises of all sizes and with different networking requirements, while quickly responding to customer needs, and shortening the time-to-market for new services.
Commenting on the matter, Broadnet CEO Martin Lippert was cited as saying: ‘With Huawei’s leading SD-WAN solution, Broadnet will have significant advantages in the Norwegian datacom service market, especially regarding flexibility and timeliness of user service provisioning. Through the excellent management team and effective market expansion tactics of Broadnet, we are confident that Broadnet will gain a larger share in Norway’s enterprise business market and even the Nordic market, while providing private line services with higher quality for enterprise users.’
