CMC Networks has released IP Premier, a high-performance dedicated internet access (DIA) solution that is meant to speed up the adoption of SD-WAN across Africa. IP Premier has strict service level agreements (SLAs) for jitter, packet loss, and round-trip delay (RTD).
Besides its regular availability, It provides a reliable platform for deploying SD-WAN services and offering an optimized user experience in some of the world’s most difficult markets.
IP Premier makes it easy to connect business sites, the cloud, content delivery networks, and Internet exchanges in Africa and worldwide. CMC Networks is a partner of Microsoft Azure Peering Services in Africa. It offers one hop from any location to a needed on-ramp, which helps users get the most out of Office 365.
Over the past 30 years, we’ve been developing and delivering solutions that meet the specific needs of African markets. IP Premier gives the underlay network the consistency and reliability that businesses need to offer SD-WAN overlay services.
The CEO of CMC Networks, Marisa Trisolino, said, “We’re going beyond standard SLAs, which are based on uptime, and guaranteeing performance that will directly affect how quickly SD-WAN is adopted on the continent.” “Unlike companies that resell third-party services, we can give enterprise customers more control over their networking and more consistent on-net performance.”
The DIA from CMC Networks has speeds of up to 10Gbps for both uploading and downloading. It works well in all African markets and when there is a lot of traffic. CMC Networks’ DIA solution is backed by engineers who know the local market and ensure services have the best uptime and performance possible.
The characteristics of the underlay network are mirrored in the characteristics of the overlay services, such as SD-WAN. Businesses all over Africa need to be able to roll out innovative software-defined networking solutions, and having a solid foundation is essential for this.
IP Premier was made in direct response to business needs and conversations with IT teams in Africa and multinational corporations (MNCs) that do business on the continent. Geolf Dornan, CMC Chief Technical Officer said, “We give them what they want,” “They desire the underlay network to become smarter and more reliable so it can enable SD-WAN.”
The company is the only service provider in Africa to have certifications for both MEF 3.0 SD-WAN and Ethernet. Its engineers on the ground speak, “They all want the underlay network to be more innovative and more reliable so that it can support SD language and work in more than 110 service locations in Africa, the Middle East, and other parts of the world.
