Software Defined WAN
Software defined WAN (SD-WAN) is a new way to architect, deploy and operate corporate WANs. It offers a way more simplified deployment and management of connectivity to remote branch offices and provides very cost-effective connectivity.
Traditional WAN can no longer deliver the flexibility and agility needed to overcome today’s branch network challenges:
- The ever-increasing level of bandwidth is both expensive and time-consuming to handle.
- Numerous single-function devices in the branch leading to device sprawl with silo management needing multiple truck-rolls to deploy, monitor and troubleshoot.
- Branch WAN traffic hair-pinning through datacenter degrades cloud application performance. Provisioning new applications for branch use requires re-configuration and is IT intensive
To stay competitive, companies constantly have to change their approach in order to overcome these challenges. Deploying a SD-WAN gives you the necessary agility without sacrificing your existing network infrastructure investment. It provides a transformational approach to simplify branch office networking and assure optimal application performance.
Quickly respond to the needs of your business with application-centric, business intent-based policies that are centrally managed and applied network-wide across all remote locations.
Maximize the use of redundant and lower cost connectivity options with zero-touch provisioning & centralized management to reduce the cost of deploying and maintaining a hybrid WAN architecture.
Leverage secure transport network services & integrated firewall capabilities to ensure the secure delivery of all applications across your hybrid enterprise. Securely identify and manage the performance of today’s modern and encrypted applications running over SSL, TLS and HTTPS.
Create a highly available WAN architecture that virtualizes and dynamically leverages multiple links at remote locations. Retain end-to-end visibility of network performance and end-user experience for troubleshooting and problem resolution.
Our technology partners delivers the best SD-WAN solutions on the market.
