LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Windstream Enterprise (WE), a leading provider of advanced network communications, announced today that a southeast U.S.-based national logistics and delivery transport company has implemented SD-WAN Concierge to help it manage its complex network operations and ensure continuous connectivity across 80 locations and terminal operations in more than 30 states.

“SD-WAN is designed to ensure that companies with tight delivery timeframes can have confidence in the network they depend on to serve their customers and virtually eliminate outages,” said Joseph Harding, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Windstream Enterprise and Wholesale. “With millions of packages delivered every year by thousands of drivers, the firm needed a solution that would give them real-time visibility into operations and the flexibility to adjust quickly as conditions changed.”

Implementing SD-WAN with dual access significantly improved network reliability, and its management portal has greatly simplified troubleshooting and resolving network issues. With reliable connectivity, the firm’s IT team can focus on the strategic needs of the business instead of “all hands on deck” to keep the network up.

In addition to its SD-WAN Concierge™, Windstream Entrprise offers its proprietary OfficeSuite UC® and UCaaS/CCaaS offerings, Cloud Connect and industry-leading Wi-Fi solutions. It also offers a range of complementary network and communications solutions including professional services, integrated network security, and access, transport and business continuity solutions including Wavelength Services with Optical Encryption, Ethernet and Fixed Wireless that are collectively designed to help businesses increase productivity, improve ROI and win.
