VOD taps Ribbon’s Network Edge for Sub-Saharan Africa resale

VOD Communications is adding Ribbon’s Network Edge Orchestration to its distribution portfolio in Southern Africa.

Ribbon’s comprehensive Network Edge Orchestration solution combines the cloud- based EdgeView Service Control Centre (SCC) and EdgeMarc Intelligent Edge. EdgeView SCC provisions, configures and manages Intelligent Edge solutions at the customer premises and provides real-time visibility into performance and service quality while Intelligent Edge actively monitors, secures and optimises QoS for voice, data and video traffic.

“We built our portfolio with the intent to maximise the potential of the cloud for enterprises, and adding Ribbon’s Network Edge Orchestration solutions was a natural fit,” said Hanro Wentzel, Managing Director, VOD Communications. “By accessing these solutions, our customers will increase their ability to quickly mitigate any issues with their hosted Unified Communications and SIP Trunking deployments.”

“VOD is a key distributor for us in the dynamic Southern Africa region and this announcement is a win-win,” added David Hiscock, Ribbon’s Senior Vice President of EMEA Sales. “We’re confident that their customers will benefit from access to our Network Orchestration solution while VOD will further differentiate itself by including it in its suite of offers.”

The Network Edge orchestration platform enables users to rapidly scale to meet market demand, lower capital and operational costs and provide a high-quality customer experience that helps reduce customer churn.
