SD-WAN transforms traditional, internally focused infrastructure into a cloud optimised configuration
Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is a technology that distributes network traffic & applications across wide area networks (WAN) & Cloud Services in a more intelligent manner than traditional routing. It uses software-defined networking (SDN) concepts to automatically determine the most effective way to route traffic to and from branch offices and data center sites.
Why Choose SD-WAN?
Imagine being on an open motorway with no other cars around. You have complete control over where you go, what lane you’re in and even the speed you go at. That’s what your network will be like with SD-WAN. We work with several vendors to ensure our team is vendor agnostic, giving us the ability to recommend the best SD-WAN solution for your needs.
Fast and Reliable Network Connectivity
Optimised Office 365 performance
High Performing Applications
Clear Voice and Video
Challenges SD-WAN Solves
Up to 40% savings
MPLS and leased lines are expensive legacy technology. SD-WAN offers scale, resilience and cost reduction. By using more efficient network connectivity delivered by SD-WAN, you can achieve significant cost savings.
Better Efficiency For Users
For critical locations, enterprises will normally use multiple network links with the backup circuits only used when the primary becomes unavailable or suffers performance issues. With SD-WAN all your circuits are always on, meaning greater bandwidth to your users.
Improve User Experience
No Circuit Disruptions
With SD-WAN, every packet traversing your network is monitored and tracked so any disruption to a circuit is instantly detected and traffic is re-routed across another circuit meaning no disruption to user experience.
Secure Data Traffic
Security is Priority
All traffic across all circuits is encrypted with SD-WAN and packets move across different circuits simultaneously ensuring safe and secure transmission of data. As a core building block of the SASE security framework, SD-WAN the foundation for a security policy that works with the Cloud.
Optimised Application Performance
Prioritised Network Traffic
Create custom rules and policies to prioritise critical applications. SD-WAN has the ability to analyse traffic based on Quality of Service rules ensuring your most critical traffic gets prioritised across your network and across your fastest routes. No more bottlenecks or delays.
No More Disruptions or Outages
Eliminate Connectivity Issues
Most enterprises have branches with poor access or connectivity. SD-WAN can utilise multiple circuit types such as MPLS, Internet DSL or even 4G to provide a single secure link removing capacity and performance issues.
Citrix SD-WAN is a core capability of the Citrix unified approach to SASE (secure access service edge) along with zero-trust network access and cloud-delivered security for secure, reliable access to all applications anywhere from any device.
Prisma SD-WAN (formerly CloudGenix) is a cloud-delivered service that implements app-defined, autonomous SD-WAN to help you secure and connect your branch offices, data centres and large campus sites without increasing cost and complexity.
Silver Peak SD-WAN
The Silver Peak SD-WAN approach is business-first with the network’s operations directed by business intentions, as opposed to the older router-centric approach that mandated applications and businesses conform to the capabilities and limitations of the network.
