During 2018, Teldat was honored to be positioned by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure. Hence, Teldat, a Spanish manufacturer, has become one of the leading companies in SD-WAN network solutions. Company voices have stated that “Teldat’s goal is to keep making progress towards fully virtualized or software-defined networks (be them WAN, LAN, voice, etc.), both for SMEs and large corporations”.
In the words of our President, Antonio García Marcos: “We are proud to be one of the leading European companies when it comes to designing SD-WAN network solutions for the international market, thus garnering global prestige for Spain’s technology industry. By focusing on R&D&I over the years, we have managed to compete with the largest players in corporate communications and preserve our identity whilst navigating through paradigm shifts (X.25, ATM, IP, Cloud and SD-WAN)”. In this regard, we must note that “in Teldat, we have updated and revamped our technology to meet the requirements of new scenarios. The only manner in which we can constantly come up with new improvements to beat our competitors is to obtain measurable and specific results within our annual R&D&I activity”.
Our financial results have received extensive media coverage, in both business and IT/Telecommunication publications.
Mario Aguilar Alonso has been appointed as the new German Country Manager for the Teldat Group
