LOS ALTOS, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
VeloCloud Networks Inc., a cloud networking services company, today
announced availability of its comprehensive subscription-based WAN

"The VeloCloud service transcends the congestion, expense and complexity
that plague WAN connections today, so that branch operations no longer

turning what is too often an inhibitor into a powerful business
The VeloCloud service works by dynamically steering critical business
applications over the best links and paths, while delivering
comprehensive networking services to all branches with a few mouse

secure application performance using even ordinary broadband links from
multiple Internet providers.
"Our customers are excited by the dramatic improvements possible with
VeloCloud, which enables a branch office to be deployed and online in
hours instead of days or weeks," said Uppal. "At the same time,
VeloCloud adds to the enterprise's bottom line with 3x to 5x TCO

performance by 20 percent to 60 percent; and offers better reliability
than a single private line."
