Software Defined WAN
SD WAN is a more intelligent, software defined way to build a WAN. It improves productivity, gives higher quality of experience, accelerates initiatives, and can reduce costs.
Initially the service was launched to optimise traffic across MPLS and IP-based connectivity, and while that’s key – enterprises need more. Next generation SD WAN is now here and it’s utilising everything the cloud has to offer.
Why choose SD WAN?
Software Defined WAN accelerates time-to-service from weeks down to hours, while reducing total cost of ownership significantly via lower administration, network management and other time consuming work.
The technology enables business customers to cope with changing network architectures, and the explosion in bandwidth demand, by flexibly combining dedicated data connections with cheaper broadband links in the wide area network.
To protect private data, all WAN traffic is encrypted via IPsec tunnelling or using private dedicated lines.
