New WAN Optimization Pricing for Service Providers
Expand Networks has announced new pricing for WAN optimization for branch office consolidation and virtualization.
Expand Networks has recently announced a new pricing model for telecommunications companies, managed service providers (MSPs) and cloud providers. According to this TMCnet report, the new pricing structure enables the service providers to procure Expands WAN optimization solution on a monthly subscription based pay-as-you-sell model.
"The all-inclusive subscription cost covers all infrastructure requirements, such as accelerators, licensing, management and maintenance. The subscription is charged on a quarterly basis over a two to five year contract term, the company said. Expand is in talks with a number of service providers interested in signing up to its new service provider partner program.
"This new approach to WAN optimization procurement enables service providers to choose their own infrastructure as much as is needed and when it is needed. They can choose their licensing, management and maintenance requirements. Service providers pay only when the service is utilized by the customers."
