Simplify management. Easily connect all your resources into the WAN, including physical locations, cloud resources, and fixed and mobile users. Networking and security capabilities are available everywhere and to all resources without the need to introduce point solutions.
Times have changed. Fixed locations have given way to mobile users, corporate applications to cloud services and servers to cloud instances, all of which create fresh management challenges.
Traditional WAN architecture designed for a different era is not easily equipped for the unprecedented increase in WAN traffic that cloud adoption brings. That traffic causes management complexity, issues with application performance and data vulnerability as IT fights a daily, complex battle connecting multiple types of users, over multiple types of devices, to multiple cloud environments.
SD-WAN. Software-defined WAN is a new approach to network connectivity that lowers operational costs and improves resource usage for multisite deployments. Internet transports (such as Ethernet, DSL, Fibre and 4G) are incorporated into the WAN, allowing network administrators to use bandwidth more efficiently and ensure the highest level of performance for critical applications without sacrificing security or data privacy.
The business benefits
Reduce operating costs. Replace expensive MPLS services with a more economical and flexible combination of high-quality internet last mile and cloud services. The global cloud service is strategically deployed to accelerate access to key cloud applications like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Office 365.
Improve the user experience. WAN optimization delivers optimal cloud application performance from multiple clouds to users anywhere. In the event of link failure or link degradation, application-aware routing can dynamically route traffic between dedicated circuits and secure Internet connections to drive constant delivery of business-critical applications.
Increase security. Threat prevention is enforced at the right place. SD-WAN architecture features distributed security at the branch level. Data does not have to travel back to the head office or data centre for advanced security protection (such as a firewall, DNS enforcement, or intrusion prevention).
