SD-WAN enables businesses to cost-effectively shape their network traffic and drive WAN performance. We help ensure the rest of your technologies play nice.
You’ve probably been hearing a lot about SD-WAN lately. This innovative technology package has the potential to change the way organizations manage their networks in distributed locations.
SD-WAN stands for Software-Defined Wide Area Network and is the application of software-based technologies to the WAN so that network traffic is optimized across the enterprise and to branch locations. By supporting multiple connection types, SD-WAN can dynamically manage path selection enabling businesses to cost-effectively shape their network traffic and drive WAN performance. SD-WAN technology can eliminate expensive routing hardware costs by provisioning connectivity from the cloud. In addition, it delivers the benefits of high availability for critical cloud applications.
We can help you think through both the technology integration deployment and proactive monitoring sides of your project.
Launching new locations includes provisioning many other types of technologies that are not plug and play often involving multiple technology brands. Point of sale (POS) systems, phone systems, digital signage, and other technologies must all be installed and integrated into the system. These complications often make deployments complex and cumbersome to manage.
Design and Deploy:
A successful multi-location technology rollout requires a proven project management methodology to ensure that all systems and network elements are properly integrated and work correctly. As a deployment partner with SD-WAN capabilities and multi-platform expertise, we can assist you with a seamless and timely launch.
Managing the SD-WAN
SD-WAN provides faster performance and greater flexibility than a legacy WAN. But you’ll still have to integrate it into your existing support process and manage LAN and WAN availability. Managers need visibility into their networks that is not always built into SD-WAN solutions to know when an issue occurs. SD-WAN solutions also often lack the ability to proactively identify potential down events such as failing network devices or bouncing circuits.
Monitor and Manage:
With experience monitoring and managing more than 30,000 endpoints, our SD-WAN and network management specialists have developed field-tested best practices that we apply to every engagement.
