SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Frost & Sullivan recently assessed the managed software-defined wide area network industry and, based on its findings, recognizes Verizon with the 2023 North American Competitive Strategy Leadership Award. The global communications technology company develops and manages software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) services. It built a solid strategy around this technology and its connection to network-as-a-service (NaaS) models and secure services edge platforms— some critical aspects of the next SD-WAN services evolution. Since its inception, the firm has focused on identifying and fulfilling clients’ needs through solutions that transform how people, businesses, and things connect.

Verizon’s continuous efforts on technology and infrastructure investments (e.g., 5G and multi-edge computing) improve existing services and pave its managed services roadmap. In 2022, the company strengthened its value proposition and commitment to clients by enhancing workflows and delivering digital transformation with a comprehensive bundle of services and solutions. Its orchestration and life cycle management platform fully integrates its SD-WAN vendor solutions, offering enterprises a stress-free solution.

Its experience and consulting services allow businesses to upgrade to the latest technologies effortlessly, keeping up with the evolving needs of their organizations.
