Mexico City, 25th of June 2019. Elara Comunicaciones, a leading company in communications, with a trajectory of more than 14 years, announced that it is collaborating with VMware, a leading innovator in enterprise software to offer VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud in Mexico. Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is transforming enterprise networking around the world and Elara offers an industry leading SD-WAN solution to enterprises in Mexico to support the growth of network traffic and connect people and things across highly distributed enterprises in the region.

VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud is an industry-leading SD-WAN solution that combines the economics and flexibility of the best real-time software network overlay with the deployment speed, scale and automation of Cloud-delivered services. With VMware SD-WAN, customers can derive better cloud and application performance with full visibility, metrics, control, and automation of all device and user endpoints, at lower costs. VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud provides an extensible platform for enterprises and telecom service providers to integrate both on-premises and cloud services under the same consistent business policy framework.

"For Elara Comunicaciones, this relationship with VMware represents a very important alliance, since companies are embarking on digital transformation initiatives to optimize the operation of their businesses, taking advantage of transformative technologies such as VMware SD-WAN,” said Isauro Luna, Director of Business Development at Elara.


Through this important alliance, Elara will be able to offer their clients, great benefits such as:

● Simplification of network management from the cloud

● Expansion and better use of available bandwidth for critical business applications

● Centralized and complete visibility for business network management.

● Easy deployment of sites and cost savings.


One of the early SD-WAN successes that Elara and VMware have in Mexico is with Perforadora México (PEMSA). PEMSA is a subsidiary of Grupo México, one of the largest companies in the Mexican Oil and Gas sector, with oil drilling platforms in the sea and on land.

The main challenge for PEMSA was to have integrated communication solutions for remote and difficult to access locations, lacking reliable terrestrial connectivity infrastructure. In small sites that are usually in camps or oil platforms, PEMSA could not manage Internet connectivity or implement network and security policies, and lacked network visibility.

However, Elara, helped PEMSA to deploy the first VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud SD-WAN network in Mexico to manage, monitor and optimize connectivity resources under a "as a Service" business model; which was possible thanks to Elara’s partnership with VMware.

“Since implementing VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud we can apply business policies, balance traffic loads better and even have high availability; the best is ease of deployment and full visibility and remote configuration capability from our headquarters through the orchestrator. We currently have multiple VMware SD-WAN Edges distributed in different locations, operating reliably and enabling application performance across the business”, said Bernardo Angulo, CIO - Infrastructure Division at Grupo México.

The success of this implementation is a result of teamwork, good communication and proactive attention of Elara SD-WAN engineers, who played a very important role.

Today we have a very satisfied customer, experiencing continued growth, which has recovered the autonomy of its resources thanks to the delivery of analytics from the VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator; they are able to manage network permissions remotely from the cloud, deploy new sites without the need for dedicated engineers and leverage user reports to guarantee the delivery of critical applications for the business.

“VMware is pleased to collaborate with Elara to enable enterprises in Mexico get the full benefits of SD-WAN,” said Sasha Emmerling, senior director, VeloCloud Business Unit, VMware. “With VMware SD-WAN, enterprises can accelerate their journey towards digital transformation with comprehensive visibility, control and automation. We are delighted at the success of the deployment at PEMSA, which underscores the benefits of VMware SD-WAN.”
