Houston, TX – June 1, 2021 – Meriplex, a national leader in secure and innovative managed technology solutions, was recognized on the 2020 U.S. Carrier Managed SD-WAN Services Leaderboard, Challenge Tier by Vertical Systems Group for the 3rd year in a row.
Vertical Systems Group defines a Carrier Managed SD-WAN Service for segment analysis and share calculations as a carrier-grade offering for business customers that is managed by a network operator. Required components and functionality for these offerings include an SDN service architecture that enables dynamic optimization of traffic flows, a purpose-built SD-WAN appliance at each customer edge site, support for multiple active underlay connectivity services, and centralized network orchestration with application visibility end-to-end.
“The managed SD-WAN market in the U.S. endured the pandemic as service providers installed hundreds of new networks in extremely challenging conditions throughout the past year. Businesses and enterprises accelerated the retirement of MPLS assets, and made purchase decisions for SD-WAN solutions that enable more flexible access options and dynamic connectivity,” said Rick Malone, principal of Vertical Systems Group. “Some provider positions changed on our 2020 Leaderboard benchmark, and we expect further shuffling of the ranks as additional sizeable networks are activated this year.”
“We focus on providing reliable, secure, and proactively managed solutions for the mid-enterprise market which is why our managed SD-WAN is easily scalable,” said David Henley, CEO of Meriplex. “It’s an honor to be recognized on the Vertical Systems Managed SD-WAN Leaderboard, Challenge Tier for a third year in a row as we continue to provide clients with an industry-leading solution.”
