Forrester names Vodafone a Leader in SD-WAN Services in Wave Report

21 Oct 2020

Vodafone has been named a “Leader” by Forrester Research in its new report, The Forrester Wave™: Software-Defined WAN Services, Q4 2020*.


The Forrester Research report confirms the increasing importance of SD-WAN, saying: “As legacy WAN architecture becomes less effective for multi cloud environments, flexible, cloudlike services models that mask the complexity of underlays and switching will dictate which providers lead the pack.”

The Forrester report evaluates 10 providers of SD-WAN services against 30 criteria, grouped into three high-level categories; current offering, strategy and market presence.

We are delighted that Vodafone:

  • Ranks top in the strategy category
  • Receives the highest possible scores in the criteria of:
    • support
    • differentiated services
    • vertical focus
    • pricing flexibility
    • and regions served
  • Ties for highest score in the product offering range criterion

The report says about Vodafone: “With multiple SD-WAN platforms and security integration across each, customers can focus on finding the right one for their unique applications and the traffic entering and leaving their remote sites. Global organizations that have a strong presence in EMEA and Asia and need deep SD-WAN expertise should consider Vodafone.”

We believe our position reflects the strength of our offering and the support we can give to any business on their journey to becoming future ready.
