ASM Technologies is going to setup an exclusive Centre of Excellence (CoE) for software defined networking, in partnership with Lavelle Networks Inc., an India based enterprise networking company backed among others by Ideaspring Capital and YourNest, leading angel investors focused on Technology startups.
This deepens the existing relationship between the two companies, given they have already partnered to build great software that is running some of the finest enterprises in the country, and have delivered solutions together to drive customer success.
The explosive potential for SD-WAN (Software-defined networking in a wide area network) in emerging economies, and their massive public and private sector digital transformation initiatives has created the need for rapid innovation and agile software development on India’s leading SD-WAN software platform – the Lavelle Networks’ ScaleAOn technology.
Towards this end, the new CoE will solve cutting edge networking technology problems to drive better and better results for application experience in a rapidly digitising customer landscape. The companies are excited to announce that in their 11.0 (latest software release), the results of their collaboration have already gone to several production networks, and customers are happy to see the results in such a short time.
SD-WAN is the fastest growing enterprise networking segment, with APAC having the highest CAGR, compared to rest of the world. A report by Avant Communications, a leading IT decision-making platform, titled 2021 State of Disruption Report, recently concluded after surveying more than 500 US based enterprise technology professionals, that nearly 60% of enterprises would significantly increase their SD-WAN usage this year.
With the backdrop of massive network modernisation projects in India and Asia, this CoE comes at a great moment for enterprise networking the world around.
Commenting on the development, Rabindra Srikantan, Managing Director, ASM Technologies Ltd., said, “We are extremely thrilled with the setting up this CoE in partnership with Lavelle Networks and are confident that it will unlock huge value for our customers going forward.
