SD-WAN solutions best meet the needs of modern workflows while supporting legacy systems, offering service provider independence, and giving you control of your network.
The local and secure Internet breakout capability ensures access to cloud-based systems such as Office365, Salesforce, Gmail, and other SaaS workloads is direct from each site. This ensures minimum latency and maximum availability, and reduces the reliance and spec of the primary Internet injection in terms of bandwidth, resiliency, and hardware requirements.
Cloud connectors enable the full SD-WAN experience to SaaS platforms, including path management, bandwidth bonding across multiple paths, and best-path selection for cloud workloads without requiring a dedicated SD-WAN appliance within the cloud environment.
Legacy applications retain their private WAN-like connectivity between end-users and data centres. They enjoy higher throughput with multiple bonded links from the best local service providers, using any available technology including fibre, copper, radio (Wireless ISP), 4G/5G, and satellite-based services.
SD-WAN also enables security enforcement at every site, ensuring compliance is maintained. By performing this at the site edge, costs for high-throughput data centre enforcement equipment can be reduced or eliminated, and backhaul bandwidth requirements may be reduced substantially.
WAN provides highly-available guaranteed services which remain a key component of an SD-WAN solution. We often build SD-WAN networks atop existing WAN services, alongside Internet services at sites.
SD-WANs and traditional WANs are complimentary. They make the most sense in combined solutions where WAN service prices are not a barrier - a situation that varies substantially country-to-country around the world.
Where WAN services are equally as affordable as Internet links, using a traditional MPLS WAN service can offer the strengths of both services to benefit our customers, because:
In locations where WAN costs are substantially offset from Internet costs, Internet-only SD-WAN solutions can provide substantial cost savings.
SD-WAN networks offer several substantial advantages compared with traditional WANs, including:
