Cambodia’s premium internet service provider EZECOM is proud to announce the launch of VMware SD-WAN for the first time in Cambodia. VMware’s cloud-delivered SD-WAN enables enterprises to more securely support application growth, network agility, and simplified branch and end-point implementations while delivering high-performance, reliable access to cloud services, private data centers and SaaS-based enterprise applications.
VMware SD-WAN combines the economics and flexibility of the hybrid wide-area network (WAN) with the deployment speed and low maintenance of cloud-based services. It dramatically simplifies the WAN by delivering virtualized services from the cloud to branch offices and mobile users everywhere. VMware leverages intelligent x86 edge appliances to aggregate multiple broadband links at the branch office, and using cloud-based orchestration, connects the branch office to any of type of data center: enterprise, cloud, or software-as-a-service.
EZECOM’s vision is to be the digital enabler, trailblazing Cambodia’s digitalization journey. EZECOM’s digitalization transformation started in early 2020. Ezecom strengths in providing more secure and reliable 24×7 services through extensive nationwide network, make the company an ideal partner with which enterprises in Cambodia can collaborate. In addition, ownership of the first 100% Khmer owned Malaysia-Cambodia-Thailand (MCT) submarine cable offers the added advantage of providing international links with holistic network management systems.
EZECOM is committed to furthering Cambodia’s digital future. It is developing a digital platform to become the most trusted and reliable service provider offering one-stop shop solutions to support the digitalization journey for business organizations in Cambodia including those in banking and insurance, oil and gas, health, the public sector, transportation, hospitality, manufacturing and construction.
“Cambodian companies and businesses are evolving fast by adopting cloud-based applications and services.” said EZECOM Chief Executive Officer Ms. Yuni Lee Heathcote. “This is why we are now working with an industry leader in SD-WAN to provide the much-needed solutions for our customers. We are proud to collaborate with VMware and extremely glad that the sentiments are reciprocal.”
Based in Palo Alto, California in the Unites States, VMware is known for providing solutions that enable digital innovation with enterprise control.
“We are very pleased to be able to help EZECOM deliver industry-leading digital solutions to corporate and retail customers in Cambodia,” said Abe Ankumah, senior director, marketing and partnerships, SASE Business, VMware. “VMware will help EZECOM to provide the firm’s customers with more efficient, cost-effective, reliable and secure cloud-based applications and solutions that allow businesses to modernize their operations.”

According to EZECOM, some of the benefits of an SD-WAN include reducing the costs of network infrastructure with zero touch provisioning in minutes while increasing efficiencies and reliability to enable companies to connect to applications and data centres remotely. The software-based solution also helps to optimize app performance over any WAN link, delivers content across multiple transports, policy-based prioritization, intelligent traffic steering, continuous link monitoring and dynamic remediation for business-critical apps are only a very handful of features to highlight on how this solution will help any enterprise business. “With more and more companies implementing cloud-based software solutions with remote office collaborations, SD-WAN is a leading solution to manage the network effectively,” added EZECOM Chief Executive Officer Ms. Yuni Lee Heathcote. “By providing this cloud-based network application to our customers, EZECOM is helping corporate, SME and consumers to modernize and innovate their way of working.”
