New partnership between HPE and Korea Telecom (KT) introduces simplified edge-to-cloud connectivity for KT customers with HPE Aruba Networking EdgeConnect SD-WAN

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) today announced Korea Telecom (KT) has selected the HPE Aruba Networking EdgeConnect SD-WAN platform to provide edge-to-cloud integration with AWS Cloud WAN, allowing KT to offer its customers a faster, higher performance and cost-effective alternative to using an MPLS network for global branch office connectivity.

HPE is also announcing a new partnership with KT, which will allow KT to provide its customers with a globally-managed SD-WAN service, enabled by HPE Aruba Networking, that acts as a cloud on-ramp, simplifying edge-to-cloud connectivity using the AWS global backbone network.

“A modernized network is the backbone for powering next-generation digital experiences and enabling new business models by securing enterprise applications and maximizing performance from any location or device,” said Phil Mottram, executive vice president and general manager, HPE Aruba Networking. “With this newly formed partnership, KT can leverage the HPE Aruba Networking EdgeConnect SD-WAN platform to expand its services to customers and locations in other regions outside of South Korea and APJ, providing best-in-class performance optimization, cloud onramp and operational capabilities for campus, branch, WAN, and remote workers.”

This new offering from KT demonstrates the value of HPE’s multi-cloud networking capabilities. HPE Aruba Networking EdgeConnect SD-WAN utilizes AWS Cloud WAN to provide advanced SD-WAN capabilities that make it easy for organizations to preserve and extend on-premises network segments into AWS, helping increase data security, access control, and performance.

“Having insights into network performance and end-user experience becomes a powerful tool for enterprises that are managing globally distributed SD-WAN deployments,” said Sang-Ki Lee, executive vice president, KT Global Telecom DX Business Department. “Our partnership with HPE will allow our customers to adapt to changing business needs by delivering maximum network and application performance from the edge to the cloud.”

Recently, HPE Aruba Networking was recognized by Gartner as a Leader in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SD-WAN. This is the sixth year in a row that HPE Aruba Networking has been positioned in the Leaders’ Quadrant by Gartner.
