e-Qual and Juniper Networks Partner to Provide Agile and Flexible SD-WAN Solution to French Users
International micro-credit finance organization takes advantage of combination of innovative networking technology and world-class services
PARIS, France – October 19, 2021 – Juniper Networks, a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, announced today a partnership with e-Qual, an expert in IT network optimization and security, to provide customers in France with an enhanced SD-WAN solution. The partnership enables users to benefit from the combination of Juniper’s innovative Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) technology with e-Qual’s expertise at understanding and optimizing network infrastructures for their customers.
One of the first users to take advantage of the pairing of Juniper Networks Session Smart Networking™ (SSR) solution with e-Qual’s expertise in network implementations is a leading international microfinance group whose goal is to provide financial services to small businesses and under-served populations in developing countries. This ambitious project was implemented for this microfinance player working with a major international satellite communication operator, Telespazio France.
e-Qual was chosen by Telespazio due to its international experience in complex geographical areas, such as Africa, and thanks to its expertise in deployment of managed services. Previously the local internet feeds the microfinance group had access to were often unstable or backed by poor infrastructure. By working with Juniper and e-Qual, they will be able to bring network resiliency to their efforts by adding satellite internet connectivity across all sites, using Juniper’s tunnel-free SD-WAN approach to free up valuable bandwidth, without compromising performance. Other benefits include global network visibility and the ability to strictly manage access to financial data at each location. Juniper Networks Session Smart Router™ enables the network to speak the language of applications and services, adapting automatically to the requirements of individual sessions and user segments. This helps users enhance the security, performance and agility of their networks, lowering expenses while empowering innovation.
“For an international complex project of SD-WAN deployment, we were able to rely on the competence, the availability and the sense of service of the technical, commercial and management teams of e-Qual. These qualities make e-Qual a partner of choice for the implementation and operation of advanced IT and network solutions.”
Hervé Postec, Satcom Director, Telespazio France
“Juniper is excited to team with e-Qual on this project with Telespazio and have our SD-WAN technology be a part of those solutions. e-Qual’s expertise in helping companies like Telespazio optimize complex network implementations and its dedication to customized guidance makes them an ideal partner to deliver customers a world-class solution.”
Frederic Petillon, Director, Global Systems Integrator Alliances EMEA at Juniper Networks
“The Session Smart Router is a perfect match with our service offering; it will give our customers the performance and flexibility that they crave from an SD-WAN solution. This is another example of our dedication to ensuring our customers have access to the best networking technology and solutions possible.”
Eric Perron, Marketing & Sales Director at e-Qual.
