128 Technology and Granite Telecom Team to Improve High-Performing SD-WAN for Business Customers

128 Technology, the leader in Session Smart™ Routing, announced today that it has partnered with Granite Telecommunications, LLC, a $1.55 billion provider of communications services to multilocation businesses and government agencies. The partnership gives companies access to a powerful combination of 128 Technology's innovative Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) technology and Granite's world-class managed communications services to ensure customer networks are prepared to handle current and future digital transformation initiatives.

"Granite is known for ensuring its customers can reliably and efficiently package complete communications solutions that are easy to use and quick to return value on investments," said Andy Ory, CEO of 128 Technology. "We're thrilled to be working so closely with a company that shares our commitment to customer value."

128 Technology's Session Smart™ Router provides an improved customer experience by letting the network speak the language of applications and services and then adapt automatically to the requirements of individual sessions and user segments. In addition, the Session Smart Router incorporates a zero-trust security approach that permeates throughout the entire network, not only at the perimeter, helping to make customers' networks more secure.

When appropriate, Granite will integrate these applications into Granite's "Built-to-Order" SD-WAN solutions, which is managed end to end – from design and deployment to monitoring and management from Granite's 24/7/365 U.S.-based network operations center (NOC).

"Granite delivers SD-WAN solutions customized to meet the performance, security and price requirements unique to each business customer," said Chris Chapin, CIO of Granite. "With the addition of 128 Technology's Session Smart Router SD-WAN, we can provide customers an even more complete set of communications solutions, giving them everything they need to support the growing use of high-performance business applications in the enterprise."

Granite provides a full range of advanced communications services, including internet access, SD-WAN, wireless WAN, hosted PBX, SIP trunking, mobile voice and data, mobile device management, managed security and network integration. The company consolidates all communications services into customizable, flexible one-stop solutions that allow customers to grow their businesses to meet demand.
