128 Technology and AudioCodes Introduce an Integrated SD-WAN Solution for Resilient Unified Communications Services

LOD, Israel and BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — 128 Technology, the leader in Session Smart routing, and AudioCodes (AUDC), a leading vendor of advanced voice networking and media processing solutions for the digital workplace, today announced the introduction of an integrated SD-WAN solution to support business voice, video and data needs. The joint solution features multiple WAN access interfaces, dynamic multi-path routing, session border controllers (SBC), and VoIP media gateways, all on a single AudioCodes Mediant 800 platform. Targeted for global enterprises, medium and small businesses and service providers, it enables secured and cost-effective branch-to-branch, branch-to-data center and edge-to-cloud connection, as well as unified communications (UC) service delivery, all in a single integrated appliance.

The 128 Technology solution combines session-awareness, service-centric segmentation, waypoint routing and metadata to provide a tunnel-free SD-WAN solution. This reduces bandwidth usage by 30-50%, leading to lower connectivity costs, lower congestion, improved application performance and improved throughput. The tunnel-free solution removes the need for hub-and-spoke architectures that cause unnecessary latency, and enables sub-second failovers between underlying WAN interfaces.
