Batelco, the leading digital solutions provider in the Kingdom announced the launch of its ‘SmartConnect’ service on SD-WAN 2.0 technology, with the aim of supporting cloud connectivity, automation and digital transformation services for Batelco’s Bahrain based and international enterprise customers. This development follows the signing of an agreement between Batelco and Nokia during GITEX last year.
Batelco is the first in the Kingdom to offer the SD-WAN 2.0 ‘SmartConnect’ service as part of its digital business strategy, where SD-WAN 2.0 technology can use software-defined networks (SDN) over any type of wide-area network (WAN). Batelco customers can enjoy advanced control over their network, allowing network traffic segmentation where data transmissions can be prioritized on reliable pathways and less-critical traffic routed to public internet connections.
Speaking on the occasion, Batelco GM Enterprise Division, Abderrahmane Mounir said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of ‘SmartConnect’, which will allow enterprise customers to have comprehensive control over their networks, and efficiently carry out their business with improved capability. We are extremely proud to be the first to launch this service in the Kingdom.”
