SD-WAN

SD-WAN

Every business depends on secure, effective communication, no matter how many locations or branch offices are involved. With the advent of cloud and mobile services, the applications which support our organisations have changed dramatically, along with the pressures placed on both our underlying networks and network budgets.
To keep pace with the changing landscape, software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) technologies have emerged, offering better-suited and more affordable solutions.

Changing Network Traffic

The private WAN connections that worked well previously can end up becoming costly when faced with the current explosion of data, making it expensive to scale the use of business collaboration tools or share critical customer data between cloud services, data centres, and branch offices. Fortunately, expensive carrier links are no longer the only option. SD-WAN provides tailored connectivity solutions by aggregating private links, Internet links, or a combination of both, to better manage the increasing data transfers and real-time apps, while at all times securing your data.

Lower Support and Installation Costs

One of the biggest advantages of SD-WAN is the ease of installation and support. Equipment is configured centrally based on rules set by the company – so all a branch office must do is plug in the device, where is it recognised by the network and rules are applied automatically. There is no need for skilled IT staff in each office, or for key staff to spend time travelling to each location. Secure, fast communications are ready to go quickly – at a far lower cost and complexity than traditional WAN services.
