Evolving Networks, the UKs SD-WAN vendor has deployed its 2,000th SD-WAN.
Formed in 2008 by Nick Johnson and Nic Elliott, to deliver software enhanced, resilient internet connections for UK businesses, Evolving Networks counts the NHS, Bulk Powders, Rank and Cisco amongst its customers.
In mid-October a solution was delivered taking to 2,000 the count of installations achieved since inception.
Commenting on the milestone, Nick Johnson (CEO) said “It’s been a fantastic journey so far. We’re blessed with a great customer list and a great technical solution, but our key strength is the team we’ve built over the last ten years. The really exciting thing is our key message about resilience is gaining real traction right now and we are growing faster than ever – the next ten years are going to be even more exciting.”
The installation that breached the 2,000 mark was for Erith Contractors, bringing a resilient SD-WAN built on multiple 4G services to remote construction sites.
Nic Elliott is Evolving Networks CTO: “This is obviously an exciting milestone for us and personally I’m really pleased the installation that took us over the line was with a long standing and important customer in Erith, but also integrating 4G cellular services. We embraced SDN early, and my team has built an integrated ecosystem from the ground up including the UK’s only multi-VNO Access Network, our in house developed Intelligent Network Fabric software and a sophisticated monitoring, AI and feedback system that performs a more advanced and resilient role than any standard SD-WAN orchestrator.
The nice thing about this particular installation is our software is providing the benefits of agility, resilience and increased throughput to locations with no fixed line connectivity, proving we really can deliver anywhere”.
Matt Harper, IT Director for Erith said “We’ve been working with Evolving Networks for some time. The technology is great, but what really sets them apart is the level of technical and account management support we get. That makes a real difference to our ability as an IT team to support our business. In fact, we have recently signed to migrate two of our core offices over to resilient multi-gigabit leased line connectivity with Evolving Networks”.
With a growing order book and customer base, Evolving Networks have recently increased the size of both their sales team and R&D investment to continually develop new innovations for Enterprise and SMEs in the SD-WAN space.
