Information technology (IT) services  major Wipro has announced that it will provide a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) to Tokyo based optics and reprographics company Olympus, leveraging technology from Cisco.

Olympus, popular for its cameras, also provides solutions for the medical, life-sciences and industrial equipment industries.

As a part of the agreement, Bengaluru based Wipro will provide its managed network services solution, the WANFreedom, to re-architect Olympus’s WAN and enable support in distributed applications in a hybrid and multi-cloud environment.

Wipro said that the new network infrastructure will improve Olympus’s application performance and improve user experience, providing better business productivity, more agility and reduced IT spends.

“Our cloud and application migration initiatives demand high performance from the network. With Wipro, we have embarked on our WAN transformation journey that improves application experience and reduces our OPEX,” Stephen Kneebone, Global CIO, Olympus, said in a statement.

The WANFreedom solution provides lifecycle services across consulting, planning and design, implementation and managed network services.

Wipro's managed SD-WAN WANFreedom services are enabled by Cisco's global Secure SD-WAN Managed Services Partner (MSP) Program.
