Service provider Expereo expanded its internet services and connectivity portfolio with the addition of 5G access to its SD-WAN and global internet services. The new expansion will enable 5G mobile connectivity to its SD-WAN overlay, when available. Now, Expereo’s customers will have access to a combination of connectivity options including fiber, broadband, and a 4G wireless connection. However, for use cases that are consuming large quantities of data, if available, 5G will help deliver higher performance for services in line with the performance of fixed-line terrestrial services. This performance is provided by the lower latency, higher performance, and increased bandwidth promised by 5G mobile access. “Mobile connectivity fits very well into an internet underlay design for SD-WAN and cloud access. Ensuring that businesses can be flexible and fast, that they have a redundant internet solution ensuring site and application availability,” said Rene de Baerdemaeker, the director of supplier management at Expereo, in a statement.
