Paris, France, June 13, 20236WIND, a leading green-tech networking software company specializing in high-performance virtualized and cloud-native network solutions, today announced that they have been selected by Swisscom for their Virtual Provider Edge Router (vPE) for their vFLIR project.

They automated the deployment and configuration of the router to make it very efficient. 6WIND is providing the virtual Provider Edge Router (vPE) solution.

“6WIND won a very tough RFQ bid which had 15 other participants. One of the key reasons for them winning this project was their solution’s key differentiators that included the best performance to cost ratio and the flexibility and agility of their solutions and their unwavering commitment to understanding and addressing their customers’ needs,” commented Rico Schoch, Head of Solution and Product Management B2B Telco, Swisscom.
