NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2023 — BBT.live‘s BeBroadband as a Service, a cutting-edge secure connectivity platform designed for service providers, and Advantech, a global leader in industrial IoT and network solutions, announce their strategic collaboration aimed at advancing the landscape of edge connectivity solutions for SMB/SME with BeBroadband as a Service available preloaded on Advantech edge devices.
The dynamic partnership brings BBT.live’s innovative subscription-based connectivity and security platform, based on SD-WAN/SASE technologies, to Advantech’s edge devices without the need for service providers or their business customers to install the solution software. The full line of Advantech products can be preloaded, with the most popular model choice of SMB/SME customers being the FWA-1112VC and FWA-1212VC Edge Devices.
This collaboration ensures that clients can seamlessly order Advantech’s SD-WAN/SASE/SSE Edge Devices directly preloaded with BeBroadband™ Inside – powered by BBT.live.
Advantech, known for its industry-leading network appliances, will leverage the collaboration to streamline deployment for global customers. Through this partnership, Advantech will further enrich its SD-WAN and SASE ecosystem, providing trusted and ready-to-deploy solutions tailored to meet the diverse needs for secured connectivity and multi-cloud access of businesses worldwide.
Advantech and BBT.live have collaborated to deliver certified Edge Devices as a key component of BBT.live’s BeBroadband™ as a Service solution, featuring both internal and/or external Wireless WAN connectivity options such as LTE/5G and WiFi 6.
BeBroadband™ is an all-in-one secured connectivity cloud-based solution, designed for service providers to deliver as a managed service to their business customers. The solution includes Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), cyber security, cloud based managed connectivity, WAN optimization, the full life-cycle, one pane of glass management and orchestration, providing a multi-tenant and self-service portal.
