Businesses with multiple branches around the country can now take advantage of Globe Telecom’s ubiquitous 4G-LTE mobile network to set up a secure, reliable, and cost-effective plug-and-play connection among their offices even those located in remote areas, according to Globe Business Head of Solutions Sales Anchit Mendoza at the 25th National Retail Conference and Stores Asia Expo (NRCE).

“Globe has expanded the connectivity choices for its Software Defined-Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) service that previously relied only on fixed broadband to include 4G-LTE, Mendoza said.
He added that 4G-LTE can be used as primary transport or as an additional capacity for SD-WAN at minimal cost. Globe continues to be aggressive in expanding its LTE coverage with about 12,000 sites nationwide as of end June 2018.

“SD-WAN LTE offers faster deployment than broadband and wired network connections which ensures stable and secure connectivity for remote branches of retail companies. Furthermore, with advancements in LTE and wireless technologies, this new capability can provide service which is at par with enterprise grade connectivity,” he said at the NRCE.

SD-WAN is highly beneficial to geographically-distributed organizations such as banks, logistics companies, and retailers which run applications that rely on connectivity for real-time information without compromising security and reliability.
