Citing a report entitled “DigitalReady”, which VfUK published in 2018, the OpCo said its research showed that “more than 60% of UK‑based businesses want help to embrace new digital technologies”.

In an interview with Comms Business, Scott Petty, Chief Technology Officer of VfUK, claimed the OpCo was seeing a “big appetite among enterprises to move away from more traditional multiprotocol label switching systems to software-defined wide area networks (SD‑WAN).

Vodafone offers a portfolio of software‑based enterprise communications services under the VodafoneReady banner, including SD‑WAN solutions from both Cisco Systems and Juniper Networks (Vodafonewatch, #155 and #169).
