Build flexible, high performance networks
SD-WAN is an approach that simplifies the management and operation of a Wide Area Network, giving greater flexibility, control and visibility for multi-site organisations. Gartner predicts that by 2023 more than 90% of WAN refresh initiatives will be based on this approach.
A key advantage of SD-WAN is that it allows organisations to build high performance networks using standard business internet services, enabling them to replace more expensive and restrictive private WAN technologies like MPLS.
All connection types are supported, so you can be led entirely by the individual requirements of the site and network infrastructure available at each individual location, including:
Importantly, we can provide these via any telecom’s carrier, including BT Wholesale, TalkTalk Business, Virgin Media Business and City Fibre. SD-WAN is usually deployed over Direct Internet Access services, however if you are still running a legacy MPLS service across locations, it is also possible to incorporate this into the network to create a hybrid infrastructure and enable migration over time.
Security, performance and resilience are the hallmarks of SD-WAN, with straightforward administration, troubleshooting and online traffic engineering:
A simple interface that is easy to configure and manage
Dynamic path selection for load sharing and resiliency
Built in VPN, firewalls and web gateways
Quality of service and prioritisation with application level traffic management
Real time detection of outages and automatic failover
