Take your WAN to the next level. 54% of HR leaders indicated that poor technology and/or infrastructure is the biggest barrier to effective remote working. Having an intelligent, adaptive WAN solution that provides high-quality, secure connectivity and can keep up with constant change is now a non-negotiable for your business to succeed.

SD WAN (Software Defined WAN) changes the game. It enables business customers to cope with changing network architectures, and the explosion in bandwidth demand, by flexibly combining dedicated data connections with less expansive broadband links in their wide area network.

Colt is leveraging an intelligent managed SD WAN platform to optimise data traffic over both public internet and private networks to business sites and the cloud. The end result is that a hybrid network is formed where non-critical data is dynamically offloaded to a secured internet tunnel, freeing up MPLS bandwidth for your business critical data. This maximises efficient use of the underlying network and ensures reliable performance of applications for your end-users.

All configuration options can be managed by you, the customer, significantly reducing network management complexity. To see how global SD WAN enables affordable high-performance, high bandwidth in the WAN watch Peter Coppens, Head of Ethernet & IP Portfolio at Colt talk at SDN and OpenFlow world.

Every company with multiple sites, whether headquarters, branch sites, data centres, or public clouds, has the need to interconnect them with a WAN. Colt’s managed SD WAN solution makes management of these increasingly complex networks simple and painless.
