Star2Star Hosted Says Yes to SD-WAN


October 05, 2017

Software-defined solutions are surging, as the network from head to toe is receiving a bit of a makeover. Front and center for this technological transformation is SD-WAN, which is great for our digital era and SaaSy working world, and now a growing trend is pairing SD-WAN with UCaaS to ensure seamless, feature-rich and reliable performance.

Star2Star announced a new partnership with VeloCloud that enables Star2Star to offer Star2Star Hosted, a fully hosted UC platform that provides reliable performance with exceptional Quality of Service (QoS) when deployed with the VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN

The abovementioned coupling creates an environment where companies no longer have to sacrifice quality or reliability. In pairing the VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN, the software-defined networking solution is able to optimize network performance to enhance Star2Star Hosted via software defined bandwidth allocation. And, in doing, can guarantee the performance of applications.

"We are excited to provide our partners with another robust solution that meets the demands of businesses that care about call quality and reliability," said Michelle Accardi, President of Star2Star Communications. "Customers will benefit greatly from the level of control VeloCloud SD-WAN offers, and this partnership will help us deliver an even more user-centric experience to those customers that require more than our standard voice-optimized hybrid features."

This dynamic duo create quite the value-add proposition. Companies invest heavily in communications and the infrastructure involved, and it’s nice to know this spend is protected. Star2Star cut its teeth supplying communications solutions, and in leveraging VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN, users gain the same security, performance, reliability and quality Star2Star customers expect.

"Star2Star Communications delivers uniquely innovative voice and unified communications solutions and an exceptional dedication to customer service and support," said Michael Wood, VP of worldwide marketing for VeloCloud. "Integration with VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN is increasing this focus on quality, security, performance and reliability with a combined solution that is secure, transport agnostic, and cloud-delivered."

Digital transformation is all systems go. From the data center and conference room, to the c-suite and beyond, it is touching all points of technology. The cloud era is at hand, which is showcased by the growing presence of UCaaS and cloud solutions in general, but it seems the secret sauce is SD-WAN. It is the tie that binds.
