Adaptiv’s SD-WAN products are launched in Japan
Osaka, Japan and Quebec, Canada, November 1, 2023 – Daiwabo Information System Co., Ltd. has concluded a distributorship agreement with Adaptiv Networks, Inc., a cloud native SD-WAN service vendor with the largest SD-WAN technology patent portfolio. DIS will collaborate with Adaptiv in the domestic sales of cloud-managed business connectivity solutions.
According to IDC’s market forecast released in September 2023, Japan’s domestic annual SD-WAN growth rate from 2022 to 2027 will be 13.9 percent, and the market size in 2027 is expected to be 22.5 billion Japanese yen, approximately 1.9 times the size in 2022. The domestic SD-WAN market will continue to grow steadily. In 2022, employees returned to the office, and traffic from various SaaS (Software as a Service) applications, such as web conferencing stimulated by the COVID-19 pandemic, has been brought into corporate locations, thus increasing WAN traffic loads. To avoid resulting WAN congestion, SD-WAN is increasingly being used to separate traffic routes through its local breakout function that forwards traffic directly to the Internet.
From 2023 onwards, there will be demand from large enterprises to rebuild large-scale networks that connect offices, clouds, and remote workers. This is driven by the need to support future employee work styles and traffic patterns associated with the use of SaaS applications and the cloud. The small and medium-sized business market is also predicted to grow from demand for integrated operation of local breakout and security at offices.
SD-WAN improves a company’s WAN environment and optimizes and stabilizes internet lines, which is important for remote workers and other situations. Adaptiv’s ELFIQ, an SD-WAN solution for midsize businesses, provides solutions tailored to specific enterprise usage characteristics from a rich library and delivers innovative traffic management. In addition, ELFIQ can be implemented without requiring changes to the existing network and provides easy management and the best performance for users. Adaptiv ranks first among mid-market SD-WAN vendors in the latest Emotional Footprint report for SD-WAN published by Software Reviews.
Adaptiv Networks provides agile, secure, and reliable network connectivity for companies that rely on business cloud applications. Adaptiv’s SD-WAN solutions improve the quality and reliability of unified communications solutions and provide market-leading seamless failover that eliminates dropped voice and video calls during link outages.
DIS delivers Adaptiv product solutions to users nationwide through approximately 19,000 sales partners via a community-based sales network with over 90 locations across Japan, supporting Japan’s digitalization and business transformation. DIS provides information and technical support related to products and solutions as a distributor and disseminates its services, as well as sales, educational support, and support systems, to many partner companies and Japanese small and medium-sized companies.
