ST. LOUIS, July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amdocs (DOX), a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies, today announced it is supporting Comcast Business’ commercially available software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) service. Comcast Business’ SD-WAN solution offers enterprises a powerful and scalable, yet cost-effective, alternative to multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) running over T1 lines.

Comcast Business SD-WAN combines secure IP-VPN, application-aware routing, and a stateful network firewall. This software-defined service is delivered over the public internet via a carrier-class IP-backbone, leveraging Comcast’s broadband and fiber-based connectivity solutions.

With firewall-secured, branch-level internet connectivity to a public cloud, Comcast Business SD-WAN accelerates performance across the enterprise data network and can reduce the cost of backhauling data traffic through corporate data centers.

Comcast Business’ SD-WAN offering leverages Amdocs leading NFV portfolio. The Amdocs NFV portfolio brings agility to service providers including orchestration, fulfillment and automation capabilities while integrating a wide array of virtualized service functions from a vibrant partner ecosystem. Amdocs powers many service providers’ virtualized network roadmaps as they transition to new generation, service aware networks.

“With its SD-WAN service, Comcast Business is making great strides in helping organizations increase business efficiencies and agility, which is so critical in today’s digital age,” said Gary Miles, chief marketing officer at Amdocs. “Comcast is leading the industry by rapidly on-boarding innovative NFV use cases.  Amdocs is proud to support Comcast Business as it reinvents the enterprise customer digital experience and provides enterprises with the capabilities necessary to build their own cloud-based network and design the services they require.”
