Windstream Enterprises has expanded its SD-WAN horizon with an additional solution backed by Fortinet.
While Windstream first offered a VMware/VelcoCloud SD-WAN service two years ago, it picked next-gen firewall vendor Fortinet for an additional SD-WAN service. While Fortinet is well-known for its next-generation firewall work with SD-WAN vendors, it also has its own SD-WAN solution.
Having multiple SD-WAN vendors has become par for the course these days for most large telcos. CenturyLink, AT&T and BT are among the telcos that have multiple SD-WAN vendor technologies.
