The partnership will see additional scale added to said SD-WAN services for BCX customers across the African continent and in other parts of the world, with its footprint being extended by the addition of more than 110 service locations.
“The vision of both CMC Networks and BCX is to build around customer experience, digital transformation and innovation. With our combined play in South Africa extending across the CMC Networks footprint in Africa and the Middle East, this will allow for real-time provisioning and a seamless customer experience,” highlighted Marisa Trisolino, CEO of CMC Networks, in a press release sent to Hypertext.
For those unfamiliar with the work done by CMC Networks, it is a global services provider, specifically helping businesses address network requirements. It also offers advanced connectivity and cloud on-ramp solutions across the entire African and Middle East regions.
“This is a very exciting time for connectivity services in Africa, and we feel extremely privileged to be BCX’s partner of choice in delivering their GWAN technology across the continent and servicing their end customer’s needs,” she added.
“This partnership enables our GWAN portfolio, our Global SD-WAN offering, to better serve our customers with multinational operations. In addition, the partnership unites the award-winning network of CMC Networks, covering Africa and beyond, with our local BCX engineering support and deep customer relationships,” enthused Shamith Maharaj, Acting managing executive for Data Networks at BCX.
With SD-WAN highlighted as a key network solution for both large enterprises and SMEs locally in recent years, it will be interesting to see whether this partnership will strengthen BCX’s position in that space.
