SEATTLE -- GCI, a communications and digital services provider (DSP) in the Pacific Northwest, announced the launch of CloudFlex SD-WAN, an easily configurable, cloud-based networking solution that empowers businesses across the U.S. to spend less time managing complex networking technology and more time focusing on their core business.

CloudFlex Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) capabilities move management of business networks to the cloud, eliminating many of the costs associated with hardware-based networking and enabling significantly greater network flexibility. Through CloudFlex SD-WAN, businesses can remove geographic boundaries while improving network scalability, performance and control.

CloudFlex leverages GCI's decades of networking experience and robust cloud-based infrastructure to equip businesses with personalized solutions that directly solve their specific connectivity challenges.

"With CloudFlex, organizations can leverage world-class, cloud-based managed service solutions that will make their businesses more nimble and efficient," said Martin Cary, senior vice president, GCI Business. "As organizations in nearly every sector shift to cloud-based networking and digital services, GCI is committed to delivering technologies that create new capabilities, fine-tune operations and shrink IT overhead, all while providing expertise and around-the-clock customer service that is second-to-none."

Additional capabilities to be integrated as part of the CloudFlex suite include: managed Wi-Fi; data recovery and backup; advanced security features; network performance monitoring; managed voice and video conferencing; and scalable cloud solutions.

CloudFlex SD-WAN frees businesses from cumbersome server racks and replaces that infrastructure with minimal equipment. CloudFlex equips businesses with the GCI Hub, a digital dashboard that allows businesses to monitor many GCI services and network performance, to receive support and to maximize operational efficiencies. With CloudFlex, businesses can expand and contract services almost instantly.

GCI managed technologies are leveraged across the globe and ensure businesses get all the performance and none of the pressure, with fully-supported services at a predictable cost.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
