Unitas Global just launched a software-defined network that it calls the first of its kind.

The Unitas Reach network caters to “ubiquitous multicloud access.” The company’s executives say no other provider has purpose-built its SDN to bring together cloud providers, data centers, SaaS applications and edge access networks.

“Organizations today need flexible, proven and secure infrastructure to run their enterprise applications and multicloud solutions,” Unitas Global CEO Patrick Shutt said. “With Unitas Reach, our clients achieve cost-optimized network connectivity with the agility needed to scale quickly and support the growing demands of applications on network architectures, performance and costs.”

We recently compiled a list of 20 top SD-WAN providers offering products and services via channel partners.

Unitas Reach stretches beyond 900 carrier-neutral data centers and 30 million enterprise locations, harnessing a multiservice global interconnection fabric. In addition, the software-defined network uses internet, Ethernet IP and other forms of connectivity for the distributed applications it hosts. The network also automates multicloud delivery.


Unitas Global’s Grant Kirkwood

Unitas Founder and chief technology officer Grant Kirkwood touted SDN’s ability to flexibly and simply provision connectivity.

“We designed Unitas Reach in response to the dynamic networking requirements that today’s businesses require and have yet to experience,” Kirkwood said. “Providers and enterprises can easily add connectivity to dynamically support their ever changing network strategies, and customize capabilities to their unique set of service delivery, operations, access and configuration requirements.”
